Most of what I see on MLS is south Scottsdale (between Chaparral and Thomas). I suggest you drive the area to familiarize yourself with it. The accessibility to shopping, restaurants, sporting events and other exciting things happening in downtown Scottsdale couldn't be better!... more
The reality of your offer is that you age asking agents to split their commission....AGAIN! Again since they have already split it with the selling or listing side and split it with their broker......and you ask for consideration to split it again?
This may explain why there doesn't appear to be too many takers jumping on board of your "opportunity train."
6% split with the selling or listing brokerage yields 3% remaining.
3% split with the agent's broker could yield as little as 1.5%
1.5% split with you leaves the agent with a whopping .75% left.
Somehow your offer just isn't that appealing!
If you do not want to go to a service that for a fee summarizes all of the public/private auctions. You can go to each individual auction website.
A large one is Hudson and Marshall. Hudson & Marshall is the nation's leading real estate auction firm specializing in foreclosure listings. To view their listings, click: http://hudsonandmarshall.com
However, there are many more.
Firms that consolidate auction sites do not do this for free. There is work involved. If you do not want to pay their fee, the best thing to do is log onto the top auctions sites that have properties in your area of interest.
Note, many of the auction homes are ones that are damaged and the lender did not want to make the repairs to sell at a higher value through a foreclosure listing using a Realtor. So, be careful on these auction homes.

Not every bank will allow a spot approval- on a condo. If a bank does allow a spot approval, the Assc. will
need to complete a questionaire and it will be submitted to the bank along with your application and documents. I would suggest having your loan officer do the survey upfront, so you will not miss out on the
tax credit. I... more
