| | Home buyers and sellers research the Internet
For do-it-yourself real estate investors who seek to deal with the sellers apart from real estate agents, there are For Sale by Owner websites, which are precisely what the name implies. They are home sites not listed with real estate firms. Two such sites are Owners.com and FSBO.com. The obvious catch to saving money by purcahsing directly from the seller is that both the seller and buyer are seeking to reap a financial benefit by eliminating the use of a real estate middleman. Nevertheless, the potential exists for negotiating a better price under this approach.
If you know some of the great real estate related websites, please post their urls with this forum.
