I went to a local Realtor's office today who I do a lot of Notary work for. His client was from Germany. He told me that in Germany all real estate contracts must be notarized by law. The fee to notarize a real estate document in Germany is 1% of the sale price for the first stamp and 50 Euros per stamp thereafter. On a sale equal to $1M I could make as much as $12,000. The maximum I can charge by law in Florida is $10 per stamp. Now if I could just get the germans to use deodarant I might move to Germany.
