When you realized that you were tired of renting and that you'd save money by buying your own home, you started looking into what you needed to do to find the right property for you. You reached out to local real estate agents, and you have had a lot of help finding properties in your area that are within your budget.
One thing you hadn't thought of was the need to work with an attorney when buying your house. While it's totally fine to work with a real estate agent, it's usually smart to work with an attorney as well. Why? There will be contracts exchanged, and you want to do everything you can to protect yourself.
