Real Estate Closings and Farm Auctions

In most cases, real estate transactions are a happy time for both individuals and businesses. However, the formal process can be complex, which is where we come in to serve as your guide. In fact, our attorneys enjoy helping clients with real estate so much that we now have dedicated staff focusing solely on our real estate sector. Many of our clients choose our office for their closings due to our low costs.

If you are ready for a smooth closing process for your real estate transaction, contact Mossman Law Firm today. Closing a home is about preparation and service. We will walk you through the entire home purchase process. We are a full-service settlement agency, helping you to:

  • coordinate real estate transactions;
  • prepare numbers;
  • ensure title is clear; and 
  • prepare all the necessary legal documents. 

Make the right choice ahead of time to ensure a speedy settlement. After all, your home is one of your most important assets, and Mossman Law Firm understands this. Contact us today if you are buying or selling a home without a realtor.

We also handle farm auctions in Vinton and the surrounding areas. For decades, we have provided auction services for the sale of agricultural land in Iowa. Through our closed-bid auctions, we offer a “start to finish” comprehensive auction service not otherwise available to sellers working with a standard realtor or auction brokerage firm. Starting with developing a marketing plan, we will work hard to ensure that sales are completed, contracts are fulfilled, and tax matters are resolved. 

We can help you with sales, estate planning, contractual, and tax services, as well as:

  • Advertising
  • Preparation of detailed sale brochures
  • All legal document preparation
  • Solicitation of sealed bids
  • Private auction
  • Escrow services
  • Final closing/sale transaction
  • 1099 compliance

Mossman Law Firm offers free initial consultations to discuss your case and to formulate a marketing plan that will lead to the successful sale of your property.
