The lawyer from the bank is not going to call you back so don't waste your time on that. If you can't get in touch with the owner to make an offer to purchase the property, then your only other option is to wait for the bank to foreclose. If you are a seasoned investor you may be able to purchase the home at the foreclosure auction, however that is something that is usually only done by the most experienced investors and you reallly need to know what you are doing and have funds in place in order to pursue that option. If not, if the bank takes the home back, you will have to wait for them to put it back on the market, through a real estate brokerage, as a bank owned property. And THAT could take a very long time as the banks are in no hurry to get these homes off their books. Bottom line, if you can't get in touch with the owner, it's probably best to move on.
