It is good to buy a home with an attorney's help in any case. If you get one from the realtor, that is not YOUR lawyer - they are doing things to help the realtor and the seller, not you. There are many things which need to be settled in the purchase, not the least of which is to ensure that there is the best possible language in the agreement for YOU, and to make sure you get all your rights in the purchase. It is usually well worth it for you.
