Residential Real Estate

At Parmenter Law, we understand that buying or selling your home is one of the most significant and critical decisions in your life. Whether you are working with a real estate agent or handling the transaction yourself, we work with you on all aspects of the purchase or sale. We pay attention to all details, including important issues such as financing, tax pro-rations, and clear title.

If a real estate agent is involved in the transaction, we review purchase agreements, title work, and closing documentation to make sure you close properly. With for-sale-by-owner transactions, we prepare your purchase agreements and arrange all matters related to the final closing.

With our local knowledge and location, our real estate team is uniquely positioned to assist in real estate transactions relating to vacation properties located along the West Michigan shoreline and inland lakes. Whether you are from Chicago and looking to purchase a home on the beach, or you are from the area and have always wanted a rental up north, we can help. Our lawyers are well-informed on all local laws and practices. We resolve all issues before closing, whether they involve local politics, zoning regulations, or construction codes.
