If you are talking about selling or buying a property through an indivdual (not an agent):
Sellers will never be able to do the marketing and have the consumer reach that a full time, professional Realtor will have. Seller may sell at a price without commission but do they really net more money?
Buyers will not have the satisfaction of having a full time professional- knowledgeable in the market and transactions, to advise them.

"For sale by owners" sellers may let a buyer work with an agent for a commission.

Hi Dorothy-

That is a mobile home that has been on the market since March 2010. If you go to the listing on Trulia you can contact the listing agent directly. They should be able to answer all of your questions. ... more

It looks like everyone already answered your question, they are all correct. It's not really meant to sound fishy, it just means the bank will not pay for anything. They would also prefer if you use the bank as the lender.

It's a bank owned property, looks like it went back to the bank in 2007. Which means the home is sold "as is". The terminology they use on the listing sheet means the buyer is responsible for all repairs and the bank does not provide any disclosures, (which again means "sold as is".)
This is what you normally see on the foreclosures. It looks like it's a pretty good deal because the home is newer.
Hope this helps!
