Ask a lawyer to review or approve the offer (optional)
Once your offer is accepted, even if attorney review is not required in your state, you might ask one to review it anyway for your own protection and peace of mind. This is an especially good idea if you haven't been working with a real estate agent and have represented yourself. Few people outside the industry are familiar with the finer points of real estate transactions and law. Attorney fees vary by location but usually a flat fee includes purchase and sale review, working with lenders and title examination.
