Fees vary but for a "cookie-cutter" type closing around $1500 seems about normal.
Personally I would worry less about cost than getting a good attorney based on recommedations from friends, relatives, co-workers etc. I like working with attorneys that have their skin in the game as opposed to those off-loading to an assistant/para-legal.

I don't agree that the 'front-end' is the main work of the residential real estate attorney as after contract-signing there are many twists and turns (especially in these crazy times) that require experience and good judgment to keep the transaction on its course to final closing table. Lynne Figman
