how do I find homes being sold by owners which are not listed on the MLS

I am interested in buying a home but I don't want one that is being listed on the MLS or being represented by a Real Estate Agent. I want to deal directly with the owner

This is a problem that unrepresented owners have, Lucas - there isn't an MLS for them, so it's difficult for them to be found . . .

You can google For Sale by Owner to find a number of sites/sources to check out

You can check out sites like

Just remember please that if this is the road you choose to travel then Due Diligence, protecting yourself, reading the fine print, understanding costs, liabilities ect. ect. is all on you
So be smart and shop smart...those selling figure they are pretty smart also and some are ;)

Drive neighborhoods - there are two on my street that aren't in the MLS and have store bought signs in the yards.

Your best bet may be to do a Zillow search for For Sale By Owner listings and check websites like craigslist and ones specifically geared towards those selling For Sale By Owner. Best of luck in your endeavors, I hope it works out well for you.
