Argh!

I am interested in buying this house. I called an agent yesterday, told her I was very interested in it and asked about the price (supposed to be $75,000) because I am planning on buying it with cash outright. She said she would call me back in 40 minutes with the price but she said it is still avaliable. She never called back a few hours later, so I called her. No answer.

I called back this morning and it was a completely different realtor who STILL DIDN'T ANSWER HER PHONE. Argh. D: I left her a message a few hours ago but haven't heard anything back yet. So I don't know if I should wait a while and call back or wait for her to call me. All I want to know is if the price on the website is right (I have had the price on the website be wrong before). If the price is $80,000 or below I am buying it.

I am trying to be patient but I really want someone to call me back now.

Find a different realtor. You should never have to track them down. Their job is to work for you.

That's ridiculous. I guess she doesn't want to make the sell. Continue to call other agents.

I am new at this whole "buyng a house thing". If it is listed by this specific agent through a bank, can I call another agent about it or do I HAVE to go through the one listed?

Contact other agents. Go to a realtor and tell them you are interested in that specific house and have them contact the selling agent. They are supposed to work for you and you should not be given the run around like that. Keep in mind the agent you approach to work on your behalf gets paid nothing by you because the commission from the sale of the house will be split by the selling agent and your agent.

If it's an MLS listing, you can call any realtor in your area.

Be careful buying a foreclosure. There is probably a reason they're listing it so cheap. Depending on what investor is listing it they will most likely have a property condition report uploaded that you can look over

You can call someone else. There are plenty of agents waiting on your call. Lol.
