It depends on the attorney. I know of some that will charge around $200/hr and others who are far more. If you are in need of assistance, please contact me and I will be happy to provide you with more information!

Most attorneys charge an hourly rate.  A reasonable hourly rate for this type of work would be approximately $125-200 per hour.  Assuming your transaction is fairly straightforward, it shouldn't take more than a few hours to prepare the documentation.  Some attorneys will charge a flat fee which will likely be equivalent to a few hours' work.  This is only an estimate, though, so you should contact a few lawyers in Leavenworth to ask for an estimate and/or consultation.  Make sure that you work with someone who specializes in real estate law.

If you use a real estate agent to list your home for sale, the agent will take care of preparing the necessary sales documentation and an attorney will likely not be required, unless your transaction is highly unusual.  Please feel free to contact me if you would like assistance in marketing your home to get it sold quickly for top dollar.  Best of luck with the sales process!
