Wow, I am disheartened to read some of the replies as the duty of a professional real estate is to help the client. Yes cash always works. Yes there are buyers agents who will not be so greedy and stuffy that they turn way from helping you because you are working with a price range. Shame on them... Granted here in California there are few and far in-between properties available at your price. But in other states that is not the case. Good luck and don't give up.
FIND a Realtor to work with.
I am in California, all the answers below hold true. My best advice if you can not invest money to make the needed repairs is to price right, and DISCLOSE, DISCLOSE, DISCLOSE... GOOD LUCK.
