Jen....

Hopefully you have connected with a lender and have been preapproved subject to finding a property. If that is the case you can write you contract to close in 30 days or less. Good luck.

Jen, Most banked owned properties usually close within 30 days, this appears to be the norm in this market.As far as your tax advantages for the next year, you should proably ask your accoun tant what is the best tax strategy. If I can be of any assistance to you please feel free to contact me via email mcglothlinj@verizon.net

Hi, Jen:

You just need your Realtor to negotiate that for you.

Hi there Jen if you placed an offer on a foreclosure the banks are responding faster than in the past. So I would consult with your lender to amke sure the loan will still be avaialable. If you made an offer already ask your agent to contact the lisitng agent to find out the status. The agent needs to persistant and diligent in this area.

Bes Of Luck

We are actually closing more transactions now than last year at this time. The main reason a transaction closes late is financing. If I were you, I would dual app my loan with at least one direct lender.

Just make that as one of the terms in your contract.
This is very standard; I don't understand why your realtor didn't explain it to you.
