Good Afternoon Ms. Sigmon,

The use of a real estate attorney is not mandatory. With that said, depending on how your contract is written, you may want to have the additional protection of getting a real estate attorney involved given that there are often times events that occur where you will want that representation. Although a real estate attorney can do the closing here, or a title company may have an attorney in their offices, they will merely address issues to the transaction as a whole, and not separately represent you. If you feel that you want the added protection and peace of mind, then it would be well worth the fee you would pay which can range somewhere between $500-$1000, as a flat fee. Good luck with your home sale.
