Roger,

You are from Australia, not Fantasyland. $1,000 condos are a myth.

Yes you can buy a condo for $1000 but that may mean that there are Liens against the property for you to pay too. Like HOA dues, second mortgages loans, etc. Search the title before you bid. Some are going for $100.00.

Thank you for your question about Foreclosure prices that seem to good to be true. Please be advised that if something looks to good to be true it probably is. The price you saw listed for a property in Foreclosure probably represents the amount of a lien filed against the property and does not represent the actual cost to acquire it.

I believe it is reasonable for you to ask. One never knows. Golden Lakes is an over 55 community west of the Turnpike south of Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach. There are certainly some super deals there in the $20,000's.

Beware of anything that sounds too good to be true! Also, beware of scams.
It can be an opening bid, but if you would like someone to check it out for you,
Check with a Realtor, such as myself.

That could be an opening bid on the auction for the property.
