1. If the purchase point is too low, and there is no inventory in that price range.
2. Reltor feels that they may not make enough money to justify running around. Typically, Realtor may get paid 3% of purchase price or less.
3. Property may be under contract already.
In any event, there is no good reason to not call someone back.
Please feel free to call any of the respondents below, or myself at 904 910 9814 to help you. As a part of the Realtor Commuinty, everyone responding to this question is here to help.
So, if it is "your" Realtor that is not returning your calls, find another Realtor to assist you with the VERY best deals, Bank owned properties. You must be FAST on these as they will often go under contract the first day listed. If you think you will have an advantage by contacting the listing Realtor, you will certainly miss out on the best bargains because by the time the listing agent even returns your call, it will already be GONE.
Good luck and again if you're going after a low priced listing (under $75k) then you may want to entice a Realtor to work with you and help you capture the very best deal. This is especially true if you're including short sales in your search because your Realtor may not see a closing for a year and meanwhile a prudent Realtor must continue showing you properties up until the day you get a short sale approval at a price you're willing to pay. The "listing" price on a Short Sale is pure fiction and it may not be possible to buy the property for even tens of thousands (or even $100k in some cases) ABOVE the listing price, so don't let the low list price fool you. The lenders taking the loss on the sale will not allow you to buy a property significantly below current market value. They will have an appraisal (BPO) or two done to verify value.
All the best,
My customer feedback letters often refer to the fact that if I don't answer my phone, I call back promptly. I feel that communication is important.
I am surprised that an agent has not answered the phone or called back. Is it possible that something has happened in their personal life that would prevent them from calling you? If not, there is no excuse for their lack of communication.
Again, If you are interested in speaking with an agent who does communicate, call me and I will see what we can do to find you the right condo for your needs.

Find another REALTOR should there not be a good reason for the current one not to call. As indicated call the agents broker and inquire. I can sent you the condo info for the area and with cash and the right type of current ownership can have you in your new home in a short time.
I hope nothing has happened to your Realtor. I would try to call their office and speak with the Broker. If they are working for themselves, then I would call the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors at 904-394-9494 to see if they have any other contact numbers.
If you still can't reach the agent, then it is time to move on to somebody else. We have a foreclosure condo in Southside that is going to come on the market after we do some repairs to make it move-in ready.
Please call us if you are interested. 904-673-2308

Try to call this agent's broker.
It might be anything - health issues of the agent, property already under contract but not updated on the system...
Hope this helps,

Or find the best deal (also the most risk) and go bid at the courthouse foreclosure auctions. Try to find a Tax Deed sale because at least most of the liens will be wiped out at foreclosure. You will need to do a lot of homework if you decide to go this route, it's not for the neophyte investor.
All the best,
Something is wrong here, I just don't know what.
Gina, what you need to do is to get a Realtor that is a buyers agent. Your life will become wonderful, and it won't cost you a dime.
I don't work the area, but I know good agents in the area that can help you.
