In general, I'm a huge advocate for hiring a professional, high-integrity real estate agent to help you navigate the home buying process. Why? Well, I've written about that here and here and here and here and... well, you get the picture.
Today though, we'll explore a case where you should forgo real estate agent altogether, and how that can save you thousands of dollars.
Are you any of these people? If so, this post applies to you.

- An experienced home buyer?
- A real estate professional (broker, appraiser, real estate banker, etc.)?
- Closely connected with a network of real estate professionals?
