we are looking to retire in a few months
and we are considering moving out of state
we've been looking at a home online for several years
the house has been for sale for at least 5 years
we actually viewed the home with a realtor last september.
the house was built as a weekend home -therefore almost no closets, almost no kitchen-less than 4 ft of counter space, laundry in a closet (stacked)
so even though we love some of the house, there are expensive things to fix and things that we'll just have to work around and a possible partial remodel
anyway to the question i have
the owner has now listed the house on craigs list and it's still listed by the realtor
the craigs's list price is quite a bit less than the realtor listing (20percent)
the question is
if you've approached a realtor about a home, is it ever appropriate to purchase that home through the owner??
the price for the area and what will have to be done to the house is too high and not at all affordable at the realtors price
