Best method for buying real estate in another state? avoid realtors?
Last few homes we have sold by owner and bought by owner but are now looking into relocating to another state and probably have to deal with realtors. Each time both as the seller or buyer we benefitted from not have the useless middleman of a realtor and so did the other party benefit.

Would it be best to contact each realtor who has a house we want to look at and hope they if they are the listing agent, the price might be negotiable if the reduce their fees to the seller. Can they be trusted to disclose important info?

Or better to get one realtor (per county) and have them negotiate and maybe tell us the real scoop about the house or area? But they might lie because they want us to buy one of their listings.'

I despise realtors and can't believe in this day and age they still have such a strangehold on sellers.

Look for a BUYERS Agent...believe me, it will save you in the long run and you don't have to pay a thing. It comes out of the Realtors commission. At least in PA this is how it works. The realtor tried to tell me it came out of MY pocket and i told him he was full of it. He knew he was had at that point.

You might find something from a direct Home seller in the area your looking to buy. Real Estate agents are typically a "pain in the ass". Buying directly from a seller is MUCH better IMHO.

I used to be a realtor, but quit because I couldn't abide all the back stabbing.

I recommend contacting owners who are selling homes without a realtor. It is not hard to close a deal without paying a realtor tens of thousands of dollars. Just find a good title company and you will have all the help you need.

People who sell homes themselves often have very nice properties!
