I'm new to real estate. In my state of North Carolina we use attorneys for our real estate dealing. I was wondering how early should I go about getting an attorney? I am in the very early beginning stages of real estate and the type of real estate I want to do is wholesaling. If someone can help me out I would really appreciate it a lot.

I wouldn't say you ever "need" an attorney. If something happens you will need one or if you need some type of paper work drawn up you will need one, so that could be at anytime! I would say its best to introduce yourself to an attorney that specializes in real estate and tell them what you are planning on doing, then when a need comes ask them if you could use their services. You can find plenty of recommendations for great real estate attorneys at your local REI (real estate investor) meetings. Just google REI then your city to find them.

Just call and ask questions such as how the process works and what is needed on your part.  Get familiar with the process.  When you start getting deals you will save time tying to  figure out what is next when you have a deal and are ready to bring it to close.

Great info, I am in this situation now. Wish I had read this thread first lol
