The answer is, it depends.
Real estate purchases in North Idaho do not require the services of an attorney (unlike some other states). In fact, for most transactions, hiring an attorney to assist you can be an unnecessary use of your money.
There has been a recent rash of ‘blog’ posts recently promoting the services of an attorney when purchasing North Idaho real estate. These ‘blog’ posts are actually nothing but paid advertising services promoting the use of attorney’s.
When it comes to purchasing real estate in North Idaho, it is highly likely you’ll use the services of a licensed real estate agent. If you use the services of a Realtor®, your transaction will take place on state mandated forms, forms written and prepared by attorney’s specifically so that North Idaho real estate purchases do not require attorney assistance.
