That all depends on where and what you are looking to buy....My company based in Chicago actually has a separate team of people we use in the pre foreclosure, foreclosure,short sale, and REO sales to push the best possible deal through leaving the agents with time and sanity to work on other things. Call me if you have any more inquiries regarding this matter. Aislinn Ryan 847-707-1590
