Your question is a very good one that many individuals ask everyday. If you are interested in a property that is offered for sale there are two things you can do.
1. Call the listing agent or real estate office that has the listing and I am sure that they would be happy to take you to preview the home.
2. You can, and I suggest that you call a Realtor, or two, find one that you can be comfortable with and have him/her work with you to help you with your real estate requirements an/or needs.

You should contact a buyer's agent in your area, so they can set up an appointment for you. The listing agent will be loyal to the seller, so you need to make sure your interests are protected. Once you find a home you want to purchase the title company will review all title documents and issue title insurance in the event any problems are over looked. It is not necessary for you to worry about title issues since the title company is paid to handle that aspect of the transaction. Your agent can recommend a reputable title company if the buyer selects the title company in your area.
