Besides knowing the community and the idiosyncrasies of a particular property, subdivision, or neighborhood, a Realtor can help the buyer or seller avoid unnecessary costs or time drains associated with law suits. Inexperienced buyers and sellers that don't have a professional watching their back are asking for trouble down the road. You could call that penny wise and pound foolish. And thirdly, a Realtor should be an expert negotiator, and can add value to a listing, or get a better price on a purchase, by clearly and concisely helping the other party in the transaction understand why they should pay more for a property or why they should sell a property for your offer price. ... more

Yeah, Geraldine is right, you probably won't find a studio for $600 a month and have it include everything you want.

i would recommend reaching out to your sphere's sphere to see if anyone has an extra room in their home that they would be willing to rent to you for $400 to $500 a month...with everything you listed as part of that monthly amount.

Good luck.

Technically you have a contract with the Brokerage and not the agent. You may want to try a different agent within the firm. If you don't like that, you could approach the Broker and explain the problems that you've been having and see if they would consider canceling the contract. Usually, Brokers will allow a cancellation because what is the use of working with an unhappy client who may make access to the property impossible. No matter what, they will issue a list of exclusions (people who the Brokerage has shown the property to). There is a time frame associated with that list which is in your contract. If an offer comes in from anyone on that list withing the specified amount of days, your original Broker will step in as your Broker for the sale. If your past Broker does not furnish you the exclusion list within the time frame specified in the contract, woohoo! Go out and find a better agent. For more information, please contact me. Aloha, Ken ... more

I personally have found that closing prices have increased mainly with funding costs increasing by the lenders. I normally make the Seller pay all the closing costs and they are willing to, but still the closing costs appear to be rising. I'm not a developer so I cannot say but it appears they are keeping prices high in hopes that inventories of existing homes on the market decrease, leaving you with their homes as a more palatable choice. Whether that works, who knows but my experience is that the developers have not dropped prices or given much more incentives to make people run out and buy everything they have. ... more
