Not all of them are open to the public and an agent can obtain additional information on those that are. They will also be able to tell you about zoning, schools, and amenities.
Realtors can help you see things objectively and help you negotiate when the time comes. They are aware of all of the factors involved in negotiating and can advise you throughout.
