You could always check with H.U.D. and see if they have any programs that give out money to fix up distressed properties, but mostly it is for state organizations to renovate neighborhoods or build housing for low income residents or even Section 8 housing. If you are a first time home buyer and close on the property by November 30th, you can always use your first time home buyer tax credit money to fix it up too. Good luck!

Sounds like it is time to move on and find a new agent. I would have an RE attorney review any contracts you have signed with them to tell you what your rights are. However sometimes it can be as simple as a nice letter telling the agent AND their broker you are unhappy with the service and will be moving in a different direction.
You need someone who meets your home buyer needs - which includes being tech savvy and responsive - and someone who will only protect your buyer interests in every transaction.
