Is there any reason my husband and I should not buy a fsbo from a person with a real estate license?Hi, my husband and I decided to buy a house. We were going to get a real estate person to help us, but we went looking last weekend and found a house that is a for sale by owner house. The guy who owns it has his real estate license, he told us this, but he doesn't work as a real estate agent anymore since the economy is so bad. He has a different job. I want to buy this house and think it is a good deal, but my husband thinks its fishy for a real estate agent to use the fsbo website, when you go to it and it is kind of anti-realtor. Should we be worried? My husband wants to get an agent to help us but I feel like it will cost more money and we already have an agent involved. I am confused and could really use some advice.August 06 2011 - US0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
