I’m not a Realtor but…
I checked out BuyOwner.com and looked at some of the ads. They each have a contact phone and e-mail which I verified are the owners. That was the only contact provided and BuyOwner appears to be just basically a fancy advertising service with the seller handling all of the negotiations. If you check the company’s contact info out they don’t even have offices in many states although you can still place an ad there so that would seem to further the idea that you only deal with the owner. If there is supposed to be a party between the seller and buyer during this process it doesn’t seem like the set up would be too helpful. Their site even states “Pay No Real Estate Commissions” so I say deal with the seller directly.
