One of the things that savvy Realtors stress to first time buyers is to have a lawyer do their will at the time of the purchase. Unfortunately, it can get overlooked in the excitement of buying a home. That hit home today as I received a call from a heartbroken father of a customer. His son passed away suddenly of a heart attack and didn't have a will. In addition to the grief of the sudden loss, the father has spent the past 3 years unraveling his son's estate.
If you don't have a will, make it easy on your loved ones and do it now!
