I am an executor for the will and small estate, including a house for a recently deceased famlily member. I developed the will and living estate based on LawGuru. Shall I now hire a realestate or other attorney to work with me though the execution of the will/house sale for the family or do it alone as I have been?

You could also do it yourself and possibly make a mistake costing thousands of dollars and exposing you to potential lawsuits. You deciide.

It is possible to do it yourself. However, you will most probably stumble on many unknowns and make costly mistakes. Your best course of action is to hire an attorney to guide you most expediently and problem free.
