Being screwed over by real estate agents. My husband and I have been interested in a few houses within the past few months. We have called on a two and each time the agent said "I'll call you later this week and set up an appointment" (Either due to "not having their schedule on them" or some other reason. Well after waiting and waiting and not getting a call back.. we call abou 3-4 weeks later and they apologize and inform us it is in contract. Well we saw a house we liked- first day its listed on the market we call the agent on friday. He says the soonest he could do it was Monday night at 6. We agree. My husband gave him our number and told him to call Sunday and remind us. We'll he never did and DH didn't want to go. I said no- he just might have forgot to call. That would be so rude to stand him up. So we go and wait 15 minutes. Call him. No answer. Stood up. This is getting real frustrating!!!Answer Question

get pre-approved and then seek out a "buyer's agent". Go to their office and tell them what you are looking for. They'll pull up every listing that meets your criteria. That is what I did and it worked like a charm. When you are pre-approved for your loan, they will jump through hoops to show you houses because they know that you really are serious and not just a "looky-loo". Believe ot or not, lots of people will go out touring houses that are on the market just for fun. They have no intentions of buying any of them.
