Right now there are 3 REO / Bank Owned properties in the 94043 zip code - One on NORTH RENGSTORFF AVENUE, one on EAST MIDDLEFIELD ROAD, and one on EASY STREET. What's your price range?
Your chances are better if you have CASH or exceptional financing. If you need a loan, usually the seller requires your pre-approval be from a direct lender such as BofA or Wells Fargo. Sometimes they give buyers who plan to live in the property first chance before allowing offers from investors.
If you need any help with this, please let me know or consider contacting at least 3 local agents and go with who you most feel comfortable with and who you best think will look out for your best interests.
Any local real estate agent can identify foreclosed properties for you that match your criteria. If you want to send me what you are looking for I would be more than happy to help.
