Hi Christina,
I would need to ask you a few questions in regards to the process you are using. Email is great for communication. Experience shows that buyers that are serious will make an appointment with a trusted real estate consultant and face to face communication to find out what is important to you is priceless.

What I do is schedule a one hour buyer session with one to find out what is really important. After that we are out on a buyer home tour. I coordinate the homes for you with the agents that have the listings so that I can make sure that they are still available. There are many homes on the internet that are already sold. Call me today as I have a few openings this weekend which will fill up soon.

Have you been pre-approved by a lender/bank? If not, You might want to start there to see what options are available for you. With a pre-approval, a Realtor should want to help you right away. They just want to be sure you are ready to buy and at what price range. If you have not been pre-approved, we can refer you to several great lenders. Good luck.

Hi Christina,

You should have everything ready to go: your application, your credit report, verification of income, and references from prior landlords. Rentals are pretty scarce in Dublin and Pleasanton right now; the good places are gone in a week.

Give more information in your initial email, such as what a great job you have and your great credit scores. Make the landlord want to contact you. When I list a rental, I get a ton of calls and emails the first day. It's pretty hard to get back to everyone, so I pick the ones that sound the most promising.

Good luck!

Good morning Christina. If you haven't done so already, you might consider exploring your options for purchasing a home before you commit to another rental. Many buyers are astonished at how they can actually afford to buy instead of rent, and sometimes, it turns out to be even less expensive!

There are excellent programs available, some with very little or no down payments and with interest rates being at all time lows, you just might be surprised.

Please contact me if you would like straight answers on what it takes today to secure a home loan, and of course, without any obligation on your part. I will be available this Labor Day weekend, too.

Good luck in your home search!

Hi, Your best bet is to contact a local tenants/buyers agent that will guide and represent you. They can then do the footwork to get you into the home.
