If you are interested in buying a home why would you not want to work with an agent. Our service to buyers is Free, we do all the ground work in searching for suitable homes, and we advise and negotiate on your behalf. The only thing I require from a buyer is that they are at least Pre- qualified by a lender so we know what price range to be searching for suitable homes.

You can't access the house unless you get the owner to let you in. You can tell if a Realtor has it listed, there will be a For Sale sign in the yard and the company that has it listed. Call another company to ask to go see it with an agent. Fri, 23 Aug 2013 12:29:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Must-I-have-a-agent-to-view-homes/508230/ 2013-08-23T12:29:00Z
