To GivemeShelter....Not insulting the one looking and I wish them all the best in finding an home in their desired area. Thank you for the invitation to work with you but my license are expired now and I love my new job. However, I loved real estate while it lasted.
GV4L....It's evident you are the one who can't read. You say you have dealt with many realtors?
So are we to assume you have bought several properties? Are you more educated then the "Realtors" that paid dearly (and still pay their dues every year)for their education?
I feel sorry for you that life may have dealt you a bad hand that has caused you to be so negative and narrow minded.
Just saying...

First of al it s Real-tors, no relator. learn how to pronounce it. Second...(They're all con artist. Like car salesmen, lawyers, bankers, politicians. Just a bunch of scumbags...) What a stupid statement since you are not educated, obviously.
Realtors are held to a very HIGH standard and accountability with the law and Real Estate Commission. In real estate school, we are not taught how to sell real estate but all the laws we have to follow and keep our asses out of hot water. So educate yourself better before trashing us. BTW we do not set the home prices and we don't jack them up to make better commissions, not allowed to.
Real Estate School??? That's a hoot! Most real estate people I know went to the community college and took a course or two. By the way, writing must not have been a prerequisite for your Real Estate School

First of all, learn to read. You're the only one to type relator.
Second... I don't like to make generalized statements. I have personally known and dealt with many Realtors. I think they are POS scum of the earth.
When I was 21 I wanted to buy a house. Oh yea, the realtors told me how much the homes were and why they were valuable. Needless to say at 21 I could not afford what I wanted, so I built a home. It was as large and as nice as the ones the realtors showed me, but when I wanted to sell it and make a nice profit they fumbled about and made excuses and never even got an offer 'cause I'd listed my house on the same formula they appraised the other houses. I sold that house by myself at a profit, but still yet a reasonable price. I started out again with the same realtors that could not sell my house, but this time I had a little pocket full of cash from the sell of my house. I could see they were hungry so I played it cool. I finally found what I wanted which was a burned out house on the golf course with 2 1/2 acres of land. The land adjoined the golf course except for 1/2 acre which the house was on,so I went to the broker and told them what I'd give for the lock stock and barrel as was. They took it and I tore the house back to the framing and rebuilt it, sold of the land in 1/2 acre lots and had the house cleared. Later I sold the house as it was very nice after I restored it. You do have to challenge the realtors sometimes and show them you aren't ignorant or likely to believe everything they "think they know".

Yes, I've dealt with realtors, but not in the way you think. I come from a family of realtors and building contractors. I even passed the state exam in 1983 to sell real estate. Yes I have bought and sold properties, but I did not use a POS realtor. You think I am narrow minded, but that's ok. I'm just keeping it real sweetie.

Realtors and car salesmen ... POS and scum of the earth huh ?
Nothing like the buyers and sellers of houses and cars that "forgot they have a salvage title on their trade-in auto or forgot the title was in a divorced former mates name as they tried to trade it or decided because they looked on a computer and it said their auto was worth XXX amount of dollars ( although their computer has never bought a car ) it had to be true despite the fact the dealer could buy them a dime a dozen at the auto auction haha . Lets not forget the homeowner who conveniently forgets to mention their basement floods every time it rains or their neighbors are Satans spawn straight from hell or a sex offender lives on either side of them or claims their only selling to move to a warmer climate ... and end up in Minnesota . Lets face it folks , the people selling and the people buying dont have one damn thing to bitch about ... you brought ALL this shit on your own DUMBASS by being a liar to begin with . But thats ok, dont feel so bad, God doesn't hold any lies or bullshit told to car salesmen and women or Realtors against anyone ... because in your infinite wisdom of selling a house or car every 3-5 years , you surely know all the regulations, rules, guidelines, proper etiquette ,and laws governing such sales much much MUCH better than someone who lets say ... does it everyday for a living , takes all mandated courses and tests to stay licensed and actually takes their career seriously . So all you morons continue to gather your wealth of knowlwdge about home and car sales from the great great great great grand-son of someone who actually sold homes for Sears & Roebuck Co (yes they actualy sold houses) about a hundred years ago or some long lost descendant of Henry Ford , bitter because his inheritance was blown by himself ( no doubt on some fluzzy Realtor trying to sell him a home )who lives out his bitter retirement spreading gossip to anyone dumb enough to listen to him .

<quoted text>I have had clients on occasion that I could not help buy a home. Most of the time it was because of something to do with financing. Either they needed more money down or their income changed from the time they were approved. Some mortgage companies will "pre approve" a loan. Pre approval does not necessarily mean the loan will go through. I advise my clients to deal with a local bank if at all possible. We do work on commission but we have guidelines we HAVE to follow. We don't jack prices up on houses to get more money. I do know some agents that will show clients homes above the price the client wants to pay. Usually the reason is because to get a property like the buyer wants it may cost more. I know Melton Realty professionally and I can't imagine them not returning phone calls. Your friend is probably not telling you the whole story. It sounds like a financing or lack of financing problem.
No, like I've already stated, it WAS NOT a finance/money issue. It was poor organization and communication.

WOW!!! Real Estate agents in Lenoir are normally really honest although there are some that may not be. My guess is their honesty far exceeds the typical respondent on this forum...Most of you negative nellies are morons. Sorry but Realtors are one of the most highly monitored professions in America since they deal with so much money. Since seller disclosure is law it's almost impossible to misrepresent property.

<quoted text> Without knowing the details it's possible that the buyer could have had a problem getting the necessary financing, the property didn't appraise for enough or the seller wouldn't negotiate on the price. That happens and it's not the Realtors fault. Judith Melton was great to work with. She understood the price range we wanted to be in and never tried to sell us a more expensive property. She actually helped to get us the house we wanted cheaper than the asking price. I would recommend her.
I know that most of the Real Estate attorneys in Caldwell County do not have a high opinion of her.
