Do you know what this site is? Its a great place for knowledge sharing but its primary design is for real estate agents to hunt for leads. The site then charges real estate people for advertising. Bottom line is always profit. You are now a commodity. That sounds impersonal but its true! What you need is to first shop for a professional to help you. If you are showing loyalty to one real estate agent, they will show it back to you by watching like a hawk for what you want. You want your own representation---a 'Buyers Agent'.
Allow me to throw myself into this thread with the others---I have 32 years experience as a large real estate and mortgage brokerage owner. I was doing 'Buyers Agency' before people in some states even used the term. I have ZERO complaints in three states. Also, I evaluate houses for banks, and have completed over 2,000 evaluations in the last 20 months. I KNOW VALUES.
There. My shameless self endorsement. Contact me if you want someone who has done this full time as a true profession for 3 decades. http://www.wix.com/marvinvonrenchler/realty.
Unfortunately, this home is sale pending. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to see listings within your budget in that area. I have sold multiple condos in the Jantzen Beach area and I used to live there, so I know it well.
Good luck in your search,
