A direct answer would not serve you as well as my general response to questions like yours at any rate. Your best option is to make a buyer representation agreement with a local REALTOR member of the MLS. Since I have nothing to gain by telling you this, trust me when I say it will cost you no more than going it on your own and save you innumerable headaches--and potentially save you significant cost.
Best of luck.
My advice--find a house you would really like to live in, Make a reasonable offer, be prepared to negotiate and get your house under contract with terms acceptable to everyone before someone else scoops it up before you have a chance.
Did you ever find a house?
