I was talking to a realtor about buying a new house.
I told them exactly what I wanted and where I wanted to live.
The woman took down all the information and told me she would do some research and call me when she found something to show me. The day she called me, she offered to drive me to the house. I was going to tell her no, but I felt it would be less gas I would have to pay for. I ended up seeing houses that were nothing like I wanted. The one house that matched my criteria was in the middle of nowhere. The only house that suited the location was in an HOA, which I didn’t want. I said she knew I didn’t want to live in a city or in the middle of nowhere, and I did not want to live in a trailer or a double house. The only things she got right was that I said I didn’t want to pay the closing costs. She frowned and looked at me oddly. She said I told her low closing. I told her to rip up our contractor because I no longer wanted to work with her or her company. She said she could find a place where I owed no closing cost, but it would be hard to find that with the criteria I had in housing. She hadn’t yet met my criteria, so I doubted she would find a seller who would agree to me not paying the closing costs, and I insisted on no closing costs.
