Do you charge a flat fee for representing a buyer in a straightforward purchase and sale of one property? What’s ballpark legal fee — from LOI to PSA to diligence to closing? Assume pretty clean title, maybe one CC&R.

We do flat fees occasionally. Depends on the scope of work and value of the property, but the general range is $3,000-$10,000.

We all know how inflation can derail our Retirement Planning dreams!!Though it's better to start investing as early as possible,but HEY, all is not lost even if you start little late. We all have our family responsibilities when we start our career, so "INVESTING FOR SELF" takes a back seat.
Just a perspective, even if someone at the age of 45 years starts investin for his retirement, he can decently manage the same with discipline and regular investing.
Happy to discuss with anyone on this!!
