“I'm probably buying my friend's / neighbor's home!”

How Exciting I’m glad you have started the process already! Private deals can occasionally work well. There are two approaches here many choose from:

I can still help advise, negotiate, and bring the transaction to a close. I would just request my compensation from the seller (don’t say friend).

Or you could handle it all ALONE.

“If we could just pick this house up and put it down there”

Me too! That is one of the challenging aspects of buying a home in this market— You already know the 3 things that determine a home's value: Home, Price, and Location.
