If you need financing for the property, you want to be sure you pre approved for a mortgage in the amount that you need (this will ensure that you not wasting everyone time), or you can even propose that the seller finance the sale for you (although this is a much less conventional route).
a. You can call the realtor directlyand explain what you'd like to do (they'll usually be happy to help you put together a written offer on their standard purchase agreement).
b. You can call the propertyowner and try to work directly with them (however, I've found thatmany of them will just refer you to their agent. because they don't know what they're doing either and that's why they enlisted the help of their agent in the first place).

Be proactive and make things happen! You'dbe surprised at how far you can get on your own if you just start moving forward. Work with an agent for offering on MLS properties (this is required for HUD foreclosures), use wholesalers cut out the entire offer/acceptance process, and learn to write your own offers for dealing directly with individual sellers on non listed properties. The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) Residential 1 4 family Sales Contract (TREC No. 20 12) is pretty self explanatory, although TREC and the state say it's only for use by licensed agents.

Even thoughthere's no guarantee that the seller will accept your offer, this approachwill at leastallow you to use documentation that you're most familiar with.
