A little background.

I posted last summer about buying a fixer-upper. Well the seller's agent lied & pissed me off, so I walked a way from the deal. I live in NYC, so 9/11 and the aftermath has kept me out of the market until now.

My question. What should I do to start. Is it necessary to have a buyers agent or can I do it myself? I've lurked here for over a year and I have the homebuying for dummies book. Is that enough?

I'm really not in to this so I want to make it as painless as possible.

Thanks for any assistance.
