It is important to choose an attorney who is familiar with local real estate transactions. You will need an attorney who knows local real estate procedures and who will be working in your best interest.
Usually the real estate attorney charges a flat fee (providing that there are no unusual circumstances) for the entire transaction from contract signing to closing. Ask your attorney what their fee will be prior to hiring them.
