Though this route might be beneficial for sellers looking to save money or avoid working with agents, those looking to buy a home can benefit from avoiding FSBO homes. There are many reasons why you should never consider buying an FSBO home such as a lacking sense of urgency, the potential for scamming and more.

Investing in real estate works like investing in anything else. You need to buy low and sell high if you are going to profit. The tricky part is being able to predict when the markets will be at their lowest. This is a difficult task for even the most seasoned investors.
