Did i miss something... you said your just going to move in without a lease or other notification to the owners.... That's called burglary and squatting... both of which can get you hurt around here ... both illegal and dangerous...

They moved further in, into Bedford, for the schools. I wonder if this is a schools thing for the OP?
I know not but, presumably, the listings were just as readily available to the OP as the rest of us, so I have to guess OP is looking for something rather particular, possibly unique the address in question.

Perhaps he's thinking he might get it for 6% under market if no realtors are involved. Hmmmm.

Anything is possible but I don't know why someone who was not looking to move would agree to do so for less than market value. That somewhat defies logic.

We'll see how that works out, but at least their is a rumor a sale could be possible. So it is not a total cold call.

I sent a letter to a homeowner, whose home is not on the market, inquiring about him possibly selling to me.

(I also misused "their" which should have been "there," but it is too late to edit. My bad.)

Is it possible to somehow move into a house that has owners? Like make a deal with them or something? Thanks!

Do you live in Bedford? Maybe it's your house the OP wants?

I was thinking you lived in West Cary.

No, I mean buying a house from the owners, by making an offer that's double what the home is worth.
