Conventional & Creative

We assist all types of people and entities with both conventional and non-conventional real property activity.  With regard to residential real estate the primary difference between conventional real estate transactions and non-conventional real estate transactions is that in conventional real estate transactions the buyer is obtaining financing through a lender and paying off the seller's existing loan and in non-conventional transactions the buyer is purchasing the property "subject to" the underlying indebtedness of the seller.   See our Transaction Types for a more complete discussion of the different types of real property transactions.  

Typical Contractual Relationships

In conventional real estate transactions there several parties most with contractual relationships with each other.  These parties included sellers, buyer, agents, and brokers.
