You're not wasting anyone's time, except your own!  Agents are MORE than happy to work with a buyer, helping you find the right home. Searching online is not the best way to do it. No offense to the nice folks here on Zillow, but the listings here aren't always the most up to date. (or other real estate website for that matter).  9 times out of 10 people contact me about a listing they found here and it's under contract or sold.  The best way to find a property is to have an agent do a search in the MLS.

Many people try your tactic, and think they'll just contact the listing agent for the property. But then you're dealing with XX number of agents, making XX number of appointments to see properties.  With a buyer's agent it's "one stop shopping".

But you can try it your way for a while and see how it goes! Good luck!

My plan is to find a house that I am interested in then choose a realtor.   i prefer this method rather then wasting someone's time.  thanks for the prompt reply.

If it's no longer listed here on Zillow, it could be that it sold, or was withdrawn from the market.  Are you working with a REALTOR?  If not, you should be. He/she can search for the property in your local MLS and see what the status is.
