Hello all,

My fiancee and I have begun the home-searching/buying process in Northern Virginia. We've gotten pre-approved and so on...

Recently I've noticed an increase in FSBOs where previously many similar homes, in the same general areas, were brokered by agents. Can anyone comment on why this may be the case? Also, is it true that this can be more advantageous to the buyer? I've been told that although the asking price may be higher, this may be less expensive due to fewer closing costs and such.

TIA.

- D
