At what stage in the home buying process should one hire a lawyer?

Legal advice is most helpful before you make the commitment to buy a home. As a buyer, you’ll want an attorney lined up before you make an offer and, certainly, before you sign an offer to purchase. If you are a seller, you’ll want to consult an attorney early in the process and before signing a listing agreement with a real estate agent.
