There are 21 houses for sale in East Orange listed at under $100,000. 10 are short sales, 5 are bank owned, and 6 are not marked clearly so they could be short or foreclosed or neither. All need major work, of course. Some require cash, some require all contingencies to be cleared (appraisal, loan committment, inspections), and some are almost normal. All require C of Os by buyer since the seller will not or cannot put any money into them. You will need a good agent who knows what they are doing. Or, You can pay a fee to any number of online services that will tell you how to access the public record and see if a lis pendens has been filed, which indicates at one time the owner was in arrears on loan payments. The information may not be accurate since it can be old. Once you know which property, you will still need to know how to access it, and likely deal with a listing agent, then negotiate an offer, get it under contract, have an attorney who specializes in distressed properties (otherwise you risk wasting time and money). May I ask, why do you want to take all this on? Also, as the list price increases, the percentage of regular single family houses goes up. The tops is $549,000 new construction, several choices.

First thing is to find a foreclosure or short sale specialist realtor to help you in the process. Then get the mortage locked down.

To add to the many responses; you can speak with various "BANKS" in your community.
Resolve, they do have a list of their bank owned properties "ONLINE".

Your best bet is to work with a real estate agent who will be able to show you homes that are currently on the market in East Orange which are bank owned (REO. There are also a number of short sales on the market in East Orange as well. A short sale required the lender approval as the seller owes more than the house is currently worth. Many short sales may have the "pre-foreclosure" status as they may be behind on their mortgage and the bank may have filed a notice of lis pendens on the property.

I do cover parts of East Orange and would be happy to provide you with the details of the foreclosures in that area. Here are a few to get started with:…
