So you have finally found the home you want to buy, but it appears everyone else in town has the same idea. When the demand is high and the supply low in the real estate market, you have to use some ingenuity to emerge as the winner in a bidding war. You are also going to need some experts on your side, including a knowledgeable real estate agent and an attorney experienced in dealing with the various legal issues that arise in a real estate transaction.
Preparing a will is wise for anyone, not just married couples. It is not just for yourself, but for your loved ones. At best, a will spares them from trying to decide what you would have wanted. At worst, the agony of a legal battle over how to distribute your estate.
One of the first most important decisions to make when considering your will is to name an Executor. The Executor makes sure that your wishes, as stated in your will/estate, are carried out. This is a person with whom you place ultimate trust.
