There are a lot of good answers here!  It doesn't seem like you are looking for an agent, which seems like the answers here have been in the direction of! The only point I would like to make is that if the homeowner listed the property with an agent it could be because they do not want to deal with the hassel of dealing with buyers directly.  If the prpoerty is listed as a FSBO, then OBVIOUSLY you would contact the homeowner.  If you need assistance in getting the homeowners contact info on a FSBO, I would be happy to help you!  Best of luck!

The seller is the one who signed the contract, therefore they are the ones  committed to honor the contract. The buyer is purchasing the home base on an agreed figure. Your statement is incorrect.

Honestly, many FSBO's are not interesting in paying an agent a commission which is why they choose to list FSBO in the first place. Who ends up paying the buyers agent in that scenerio? The buyer does or he walks away.

People should feel comfortable contacting the owner about their house for sale directly. Most owners are reasonable people who just want to sell their house. If the parties want the services of an agent at that point, they can always talk about their willingness to spilt the commission or pay a document fee if they are interested in having professional help with the transaction.

The buyer pays no commission on a purchase regardless of what the person below states. The sellers agent is hired by the homeowner. Period.  The buyer pays for the house, not the commission.

There is absolutley no reason not to speak to a Realtor to help you purcahse the house. You are not going to save anything by going alone, but you have much to gain in experienced agents!

Come on folks the writer was asking how to contact the owner.  There is nothing there that asks how to contact an agent or should she use a buyer's agent. 

If the home is for sale by owner the contact information is on Zillow.  Shoot the owner an email and they will respond.

If the home is for sale by an agent scroll all the way down to the bottom and on the left side is the listing agent contact information.

Not all houses on Zillow are listed for sale. The ones that are have a red icon on the map and say "For Sale" at the top of the page. If they are listed for sale by owner on Zillow, the contact info for the owner that is selling is usually under the photo section in the middle of the page. Many owners also can be contacted via email via their Zillow profiles by clicking on their avatar photo to go to their profile page and then clicking the "email me " button at the top of the page.

If a house is not for sale on Zillow, but you are still interested, you can send a letter to the house address expressing your interest or get the owners mailing information from your local assessor or recorder's office. Owners who are looking to sell may reply to you.

"The great thing about it is that it does not cost you anything, as the buyer, to use a Realtor.  The seller pays the commission on both sides of the transaction, unless negotiated otherwise. "

FALSE and misleading.  The buyer pays 100% of realtor commissions because THEY are the one's bringing the money to the table.

As Realtors, we do not recommend knocking on the front door to talk to the homeowner.  There are many misconceptions about not using a Realtor. You need to protect yourself by calling a Realtor in your area.  The great thing about it is that it does not cost you anything, as the buyer, to use a Realtor.  The seller pays the commission on both sides of the transaction, unless negotiated otherwise.  You may contact any of us, if you need a referral in your area or have any questions.

You should contact a Realtor to work for you on your behalf.  The home is listed already and remember it does not cost you anymore to have your own agent.  The listing agent is working for the seller.  Always much better to have you buyers agent contact the listing agent for all showings.  We as agents call pull more info on the house to use as we negotiate.  Such as Tax records, previous sales in the neighborhood, ect.

You would not contact the owner directly. You would have your Realtor contact the homeowners Realtor to schedule a showing. If you need a referral for a qualified Realtor in your area, please send an email to [contact info removed by moderator]

If a house is actually listed for sale on Zillow, and you don't have a buyer's agent, you can scroll to the very very bottom of the listing on Zillow and find contact information

You should work with a buyers agent who represents your interests in any real estate transaction.  Whether you are looking at buying a FSBO or a listed home with a realty company.  The listing agent represents the seller not the buyer.  The buyer's agent will make sure the value is there on the price you want to offer & ensure that the lender can make the loan happen for you.  If you have any questions, please call me at [contact info removed by moderator] & I can assist you with information.
