I am new to REI, still looking for that first deal...I decided to do a few assignments first, but am having trouble finding an Agent comfortable doing them with me. Do I NEED an Agent to submitt offers to owners/agents? If I run some comps, check out the property, crunch the numbers, and have an interested buyer; I should be able to close w/out an agent, right? I would hire an attorney to make sure I have everything included in the contract on the legality side, however. Any feedback is appreciated.
