Asked by Deborah Rummelhart, 90036 • Tue Dec 30, 2008
I will need a real estate agent to help me look at homes to buy. I have a FICO over 800, am a first time buyer with no debt, and want to make a purchase that makes sense to me financially (200,000-250,000). I am currently looking at sales that have been made (especially price per square foot) in the following areas: park la brea, hancock park, studio city, sherman oaks, toluca lake, certain parts of glendale. I am going to drive around and make up my mind where I want to be and whether I want a condo or SFH or duplex and get pre-approved before hiring a realtor. My questions are: Will a realtor look at everything: regular sales, reos, short sales when presenting stuff to me? Do realtors subscribe to realtytrac or have other sources of information on homes for sale that the public is not aware of? Why are condo prices per square foot generally higher than SFH or duplexes? Price is really important to me, and I am willing to offer a fast closing or other? to get a good price.
