You must have a very good reason not to look into homes listed in the local MLS (and sold by brokers). I am just not sure what is that reason... Price? Most FSBO are priced along the lines of MLS listed properties. The sellers just want to save a buck or two on real estate commissions. That makes their homes harder to find (by people like you) and harder to sell. Good luck with your home search but also consider working with a local Realtor. In many cases FSBO will pay at least some commission if the buyer is closing on the deal with Realtor's help.
