Expanding your search to FSBOs and foreclosures may just help you find the home that you love! However, the process is a bit different. With a FSBO, the owner may or may not welcome your realtor. If you are not going to use a realtor, be certain to hire a real estate attorney to make sure all is legal and binding. If you're going to search foreclosures, know that you may or may not get a better price, but that you will probably need to do some work on the property (paint, carpet, etc.) so sometimes the difference in price does not make up for the work that the property will require.
