REA specializing in 203kHi There - I'm a little concerned about my REA....I found one from positive yelp reviews. First, he showed up 20 minutes late. Then he spent about 2 hours of a 1 hour appointment talking without asking what we wanted. We told him our budget of 500-550k and he mentioned the market is difficult and our budget is not realistic for a 3 br house...He asked me to send houses I wanted to look at from redfin ( instead of him compiling the list ) and to my surprise, today we spent 2 hours driving around looking at houses which were 100-150k below the range we asked to look at....none of which were on my original list...not sure why he did this. I thought normally they show you houses which are out of the budget? Additionally we told him that we want a 203k reno loan and he said it would be tough to get an offer accepted on any property with this, even foreclosures.Yes, we live in the Bay Area and real estate is competitive, but is this what we should expect in an agent?Hoping I can get a recommendation for a REA who is experienced in Castro Valley/Dublin/Pleasanton area and has completed many 203k loans...January 19 - Castro Valley00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
