Do I really need a realtor if I'm buying a home from someone we know?We are looking into purchasing a home from someone we know. If we've already discussed the price of the home and the owner is willing to give up $2k in closing cost do we really need a realtor? Can we do this without one? And should we hire an attorney to look over the paper work?
