Foreclosure in Kenwood>Question Details

Zeena, Both Buyer and Seller in Chicago, IL

How do I ask contact someone about purchasing a forclosure? Is it possible to see the property?

Asked by Zeena, Chicago, IL Tue Nov 8, 2011

The property is listed on your site as East 47th Street #2 in Kenwood, Chicago. It is what I am looking for but I would like to see property and then make an offer. Please inform me on how to do this. Thanks.

Foreclosure transactions are quite different than regular transactions, so it is definitely best to contact an experienced professional. One qualification to look for is the National Association of Realtors' (NAR) Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) designation. An agent/broker with an SFR certification has fulfilled the specific required education courses, passed the exam, and has access to resources specifically for these transactions. Visit for more information. Hope that helps! Good luck!

Most of forclosed properties you can see inside. You just need real estate agent who will show you the property.

Have your agent show it to you. If you don't have an agent, go out and get one. This way you have someone to walk you through the buying process, at no cost to you.

All realtors have access to whatever is on the market whether foreclosure or not. And it does not have to be a foreclosure to be a great deal today! Please contact me 773-908-2777 and I'll be happy to help you find the perfect property.

Just about all agents are 'experienced' in foreclosures, whatever that means. It's not that complicated, just more time consuming and requires more paperwork and an understanding of how these banks operate.
The process is not that much different from a 'normal' transaction although it's hard to find one of those in Kenwood and many other neighborhoods.
My web site gives you some information on what I do and has a link to search for property in the MLS as trulia is not the best to use. It has outdated information.

2 ways.
you can by a list on line that has all the forclosure kistings and the detail of each property. most services that offer the list are very simular.

the other option is to go to a bank and ask for the list of forclosures they have in inventory. I perwsonaly would team up with a broker and have him or her do the work for you. If you need a good broker shoot me an email. Im a realtor but I know a few good people that will help out.

It is important that you find an agent with foreclosure purchase experience. Please consider contacting myself or any other agent with equal experience.
