Last night we met our realtor at 6 pm to go look at a couple of houses.
The first one was a foreclosure, it was beat up! The carpet was nasty, the house was dirty, switchplate covers and shower doors were missing. It was fairly cheap but they would have needed to drop at least another 30K to make up for all the work that needed to be done.
The second was another foreclosure, but it was in better shape. I wasn't a fan of the laminate floors and the kitchen needed some work, the deal breaker was the power lines that literally ran across the back yard, as in if you stood in the yard and looked up, they were right over your head. Again, price wasn't low enough to make up for that!
The third house was one we didn't want to see, our agent is the selling agent on it, and he has been talking about it since the first day we met him. It is lacking a LOT in terms of curb appeal. Of course compared to the other two it was very nice (was that his plan all along?), but that doesn't change its location, and bad front door placement. It was a short-sale and he kept letting us know that if we wanted it we needed to move on it asap, umm we never said we wanted it! It was okay on the inside, but it was only the third house we have ever seen!?!? You really think we are going to put an offer in on that?
I can't decide if I want to keep looking with this agent or find someone else. That whole night just feels sneaky to me, like he was really trying to get us to make an offer on a house I said I don't want!
