I can send you the active listings for Barker Ridge and the comparatives, just check out my website and send me a messege.
I can also put you on Auto Alert for the neighborhood since HUD looks at Owner Occuppied purchasers first.
((On the Realty Trac ads I can 90% of the time find the property off of the HCAD tax rolls by using the square footage and year built if they give it. Sometimes they advertise the properties so low its laughable. Send whatever link you found for these properties.))
Look up in the tax records to find out whom is the current owner of the property you are interested in. Then try contacting the lender that has taken the property back. Unfortunately, many lenders will not want to deal with buyers directly rather through a realtor. Good Luck. I

These are likely a RealtyTrac listing ... you'll notice that the actual addresses are not shown; this is intentional. RealtyTrac is a paid service ... in order to obtain more information, you'll have to pay their fees ... and the likelihood of your purchasing the home is remote at best.
Don't be misled by the "price." It's nowhere near what the home will sell for. The number shown is the amount in default, not the value of the property. I personally find this highly deceptive and unethical.
I've always contended that foreclosures are primarily for investors with deep pockets. Homes are purchased "as-is, where-is, with all faults and defects." It's yours as it stands. You can inspect the home after agreeing to a contract, but you'll spend close to $1500 if you do it right ... general home inspection, roof, HVAC, plumbing and foundation are what I recommend. After putting up a bunch of money to get the place into shape, you probably could have purchased a non-foreclosed home in better condition for around the same price, perhaps less. It's a common misconception that foreclosures can be gotten for pennies on the dollar. If that were the case, those of us with more information than the average buyer would be scooping them up.
Please proceed with caution. If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me. I wish you well.
