Jennifer Flo…, Home Buyer in Oakland, CA

Does any real estate agent want clients?

Asked by Jennifer Flowers, Oakland, CA Tue Oct 22, 2013

I live in California and I want to buy a property for 200,000 and under. I am having terrible luck with finding an agent. We planned this trip to come look at houses this weekend and now I am without an agent again. Can anybody help me? We have a pre-approval and we really want to buy like yesterday!

Jennifer,

My questions to you are:

1- What kind of property are you looking for: a house, a condo or an investment property (2-plex, 3-plex, etc) and,

2- Where in Broward county do you hope to find a 1/2 way decent property under $200K? As Susan Penn said below, your purchase price versus where you wish to be might conflict with reality.

There are town homes in this range. Most home prices are higher which may be why you are having difficulty.

Good Advice from a FL Mortgage Broker..............

I'm not always the biggest fan of realtors, but the ones that are even decent are very busy with this avalanche of buyers trying to grab FL real estate with prices going up so fast!

What I would do is, fax or email these two items to real estate offices in the area you wish to buy and you'll see a huge difference in response:

1. a Legit Pre Approval Letter

2. Copy of a personal check for $5,000 made out to simply "Title Company" and write in the memo section: Good Faith Deposit

Include your contact info and desired criteria and I bet you will be amazed at what will happen!

Next: Look at these loan programs below and maybe you'll be able to buy a 300k home with even less out of pocket!

100% LTV- VA
100% LTV- USDA
99% LTV- FHA/580 score @ lower LTV

97% LTV- NO PMI
97% LTV- CONDO- NO PMI
90% LTV- 2nd Home- NO PMI

We planned this trip to come look at houses this weekend >>>The weekend is around the corner and I see no respond/s, explanation (as far as needs and wants) or any feed back....

All good and busy agents do not wait by the phone, and can not make appointments, with buyers down here for a very limited time, from now to now; we are not pop tart, are we?

Oh well...

Call the Listing Agents off the sign's of the homes you are interested in, they will be more motivated to work with you as they will be able to get their whole check at closing and not just a portion of it.

Wouldnt do that, while the Listing Agent is representing the interest of the seller. They have a contract with the seller, so get your own buyers agent who will represent your interest and get you the best deal for your money.

Jennifer,

I'm still confused as to where exactly in the country you are looking to buy? Next to your name it says "...Homebuyer in Oakland, Ca".

Don't you think it is time for you to respond back?

What type of property, condo, townhome, single family ? On your pre-approval, what did they allow for property taxes and HOA fees ?
0 votes Thank Flag Link Wed Oct 23, 2013
You sound really frustrated, Jennifer. I completely understand how you feel. Some agents get so caught up in finding listings, they forget how important a buyer is to the whole equation. I'm happy to help you if you are still interested. I generally focus on East Ft. Lauderdale. Is that the area you are interested in? Call or email me if I can help.

Hello Jennifer,
am sorry to hear that you could not find an agent that cares for you. You found your agent now, an agent that lives only of referrals since the last 13 years and will work for you and with you.
I will be having a crazy day tomorrow but please call me at 954 663-5018 and we can talk about what kind of property would like to find and what features it needs to have. Am open all weekend to take you out to see places. We can pick out homes by email before you are here and find out what you would like to see.
Let's make it happen :)
