Unfortunately the problem is you - not your agent. You should be very thankful your agent is still with you instead of dumping you 3 months ago.
The issue is when you are looking to buy in a hot / rising housing market, buyers need to make decisions quickly AND need to submit offers at or above asking price. This is not the time "to get the best deal possible." Throw that idea out because it doesn't work. Why do you think you were outbid 4 different times? Why do you think it's taking you 6 months looking at condos? Something is wrong with this picture. It should have taken you 2 months to find a condo and you should have been moved in already.
Agents call buyers like you "lookie loos" Do yourself and your agent a huge favor. When you are ready to move now and submit an offer at a fair price (even above their asking price) instead of looking for a deal, then you should start looking at condos. Until you reach this point, you are welcome to visit Open Houses as much as you want.... more
As a note, he lives 8 minutes away at his parents' house because he has a daughter, and it's best he maintains his residence there for her because she has her own room. We both lead busy lives, and he doesn't keep ANY belongings here aside from a toothbrush and a spare set of boxers. He does not receive mail here, he doesn't pay any bills. He doesn't even take showers here (because the shower head is too short for him and he's picky).
The apartment complex has a strict parking situation, where you can be ticketed and towed if you don't have a residency tag, or a parking permit with a maximum of two weeks on it. Therefore, I have to go pick one up every two weeks simply so he can stay the night a few times a week, sporadically. If he does come over, it's at 7PM most of the time, and he leaves for work at 5:30AM. He spends SO LITTLE TIME here, that it is ridiculous for him to go on my lease, and it's equally ridiculous for me to simply get a parking pass for him every day he sporadically decides to come visit.
The landlord apparently has decided that if I keep getting two week parking passes back to back, that MUST mean he's living here full time. I'm a paralegal by profession, and that's outrageous.... more
No law states what acre requirements but rule of thumb is 2 acres for 1 horse and 1 acre for additional horses but depends on size of horses. This gives sufficient pasture for grazing and less chance of bare land mud ect. But remember to place proper grazing seeds in bare areas. Do your research on proper and different types.... more
