What does a real estate attorney do for a seller?

            An attorney representing a seller will be the one drafting the initial contract that is sent to prospective buyers.  The attorney also helps the seller evaluate each offer.  In addition, an attorney will help resolve any issues with title, deal with escrow deposits, calculate all closing adjustments, and coordinate with the coop or condo board.  An attorney will also be present at closing to guide the seller through the documents and any last minute issues that may arise.
