I have build 2 megatel homes now. Honestly, I have been very satisfied with the end product of our home. They have been fair priced and had no issues with our first home. Let's fast forward to now - I am currently in the process of building another home with them - price again, fair. Salesperson, again nice courteous. Owners, again very supportive. Everyone at the corporate office, again nice courteous and responsive. For the builder that is building my home - completely different story! If you get assigned Clint Miller as your builder of your home respectfully ask for a new builder. I honestly cannot believe megatel has this guy on their payroll. He has ZERO customer service, ZERO professionalism, and honestly doesn't give 2 cents about you as a paying customer. For starters, he won't give you a number to reach him at only his email - that's fine, I get it - but do expect a hateful email back when you do need to reach out. If you ask about anything, he will respond with "you don't have to email me, let me do my job" - ok, if you would of done your job right the first time I obviously wouldn't be emailing you. If he messes something up that was agreed to in the contract, expect and email back that states "sounds like a personal problem, not mine". I have never sent a nasty email to him, but get nasty emails back. I have never responded negatively and have always been very respectful - don't expect the same. At the end of the day, megatel needs to do something about this guy. He needs to understand, we as customers are paying him. My home is not cheap, when you have a customer paying close to a million dollars for a home, typically you are dealing with a professional, successful individual. Regardless of the cost of the home, customer service should be a priority. If any of my employees treated any of my clients like Clint Miller does, you would be searching LinkedIn for a new job, regardless of how good you are. This is honestly the only complaint I have with megatel. I strongly recommend you build your new home with them, just make sure Clint Miller is not your builder. ... more

So called private information is easily aquired about anyone like co-workers, your boss, that hottie you met via a friend! And then twist the search into what about property information... So use publicdata.com to see all people tied to an address. Then you can use the county CAD website to see the property information, like how much is the house your boss lives in or how long has he lived there? Is he being a honest citizen my paying the actual amount of property tax each year? Or are they letting the lazy govt appraisers allow the value of the home to drop so they can cheat on the amount of taxes they pay each year? I wonder how much trouble can be stirred up for the owner that cheated the govt out of the tax $ they should have been paying when their house sells for a significant amount more than what the CAD site shows? and to those who knew about these people that cheated the govt of taxes? guilty I say is anyone that justifies a lie is ok ever for any reason! Your lies will be what haunts you some day unless you are a sociopath! Good luck trusting an agent that is trained to withhold information and also feed buyers bogus lies. You agents that are totally honest, I would say you will be rewarded for your honest heart! I wish no ill-will to those that choose to sin, i just wish that you would change your ways , thus being the change that that you want to see! Leak Project is the way the unknown becomes known and the future will be better for all no matter how hard some try to resist the change for the better good of all people! Remember what it felt like to give to someone that really needed help and was ever so thankful without saying it out loud, yet you could see it in their eyes? You that have so much to share ... more

I ran a search in a couple of my re groups on facebook and the feedback wasn't good. And their guarantee is worthless if you ask me. It's something along the lines of if an appointment flakes or cancels or isn't a real appt. then they'll get you another one instead of giving your money back. I tried to bargain with the rep but they didn't even want to give me 1 free listing appt. to test them out. I ended up joining their free network and even those "appointments" that they have sent haven't been real appts. ... more

Derek Jones answered:
And how would you suppose the lenders get an idea of a properties value? Every system needs checks and balances. Without appraisals people could go buying houses for $300,000 more than they are worth then defaulting and banks collapse.

There are ways to challenge an appraisal.

Hello Arturodelrio, it may be because there are not any multi family listings currently available. None are coming up on my mls either except a triplex for 999k in Los Alamitos. It consists of 2 bd 1ba front house, 2bd 1ba back house and a studio attached to the garage.

You may consider FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score. You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice.

If you figure out what cities, zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be set up for automatic daily emails to fit your search criteria from any agent.

Check out the web reference below and get started today.

Hi,

We do not have a feature that can filter specific rental listing by owner. My best recommendation is check every rental listing property that you are interested, if it is by owner or by agent. I am sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you. I definitely understand this is a frustrating process, especially to check in every rental listing in the site.

We appreciate you choosing Trulia to assist you in your home search and your feedback helps us serve you better. We value your interest in our company and I have forwarded your suggestions to our specialists.

As we are continually working on improvements, I encourage you to continue notifying us of ways we may improve our services to better meet your needs. Feel free to send us any further insights or inquires.
