We Offer Real Estate Contract Services for Individuals and Businesses

Regardless of the type of contract, most real estate agreements involve a significant value of residential or commercial property. For some people, the biggest contract of their lives will be a real estate purchase agreement. Whether proceeding with the purchase or sale of a home, the lease of commercial property, or the investment exchange of like-kind property, it is important to have a knowledgeable real estate lawyer on your side to make sure your deal goes through without a hitch and that your interests are fully preserved in the contract.

At Stebelton Snider, we not only have experienced real estate attorneys with comprehensive experience handling residential and commercial property agreements, we also have our own title company, SAS Title Agency Ltd. to make things go more smoothly in both residential and commercial transactions.
