First you should find a Realtor to work for you as a Buyer's Agent. He/she will be able to take you to see the property you're inquiring about, research its value and help you determine if you want to make an offer or not. Hopefully you'll get some responses from agents in your area willing to assist you. If not, ask around to friends, family or co-workers to see if they can recommend someone. Or, I'd be happy to find someone to refer you to as well.
