Estate planning is planning for your property, your loved ones, and yourself in the event of death or incapacity. The most important aspect of estate planning is early planning to eliminate or minimize problems before the crisis occurs.

A will allows you to distribute your estate assets as you wish. You can list your personal property, provide instructions as to who should take possession of it, and choose your personal representative to carry out the will’s terms.

A trust allows you to set aside property and assets for specific purposes. It enables you to provide instructions concerning the holding of assets. A trust can also set conditions regarding the distribution of those assets. 

A real estate agent is entirely different from a real estate lawyer. When you seek to buy or sell a house, an agent is there to help you through the process. An agent can tell sellers what their home is worth, list it for sale, and show it to potential purchasers. For buyers, an agent can help determine your budget, assist you in finding the home of your dreams, and help you make an offer. 

A lawyer assists with the legal aspects of a real estate transaction. A real estate attorney ensures your legal interests in the transaction are well-protected. In many states, it is a requirement that an attorney performs all real estate transactions, while in other states, an attorney must either be present at the closing or certify the title. In some states, a lawyer’s presence is not required but is highly recommended, especially for more complex real estate transactions involving unusual contract aspects.
