My office is actually located in Randolph and we specialize in bank owned properties. We happen to have many foreclosure listings within the morris county area. Are you an Investor or are you looking for your primary residence? If you are interested in a list of these types of homes give me a call or email me. 973-997-5296.
First let me say welcome to the real estate market. Your question is one we get lot in the market today. I want to claify a few terms first , just so I know that I am answering your question correctly.
- a Bank owned forclosed property is commenly called an REO - these houses typically go on the market well after the bank hs taken possesion of a property and are commonly put on market " as is " through one broker or another depending on the bank
- Property forclosure- A propety IN forclosure is can not be purchased except through a sheriff sale ( in NJ ) a realtor can not help you in this reguard
- Propety in Short Sale - This is what most realtors and consumers deal with. This is a property that a bank has stoped forclosure proceedings on in order to give the mortagee ( homeowner ) a chance to sell the house and possibly avoid a forclosure and lessen their liability ( mabye )
As an SFR (Short Sale and Forclosure Resource Designee ) I am trained and educated by the NAR to help people both buy and sell homes in the forclosure/short sale market
Please contact me if you have any questions and good luck.
There are not enough foreclosures in Randolph for anyone to call it a specialty. Most foreclosed properties in northern New Jersey are concentrated in the urban centers. I have over 25 years of experience appraising these properties for all the big lenders, and I can tell you that they are very rare in the more affluent areas. For example, I've done only one in Mendham in 20 years. I've done a few in Randolph, Roxbury, Mount Olive, Morris Plains and towns like that, but they are few and far between. Most of the time, they are not great deals.
The bottom line is, you are extremely unlikely to find a suitable bank owned property in any of the affluent towns in Morris County. In Randolph right now, out of 134 listings, there are about 10 or so short sales, and only 2 bank owned properties priced below $200,000 that look like dumps. 2 out of 134 and you wouldn't want either one of them.
So if I were you, I would not attempt to limit myself to a bank-owned property in Randolph. They just don't exist, except for the once-in-a-blue-moon situation every few years.

I like to say "Letâ€™s find a home you like weather it is a bank owned, foreclosed property or just someone home." I want you to get a good buy! Some of the best buy is just a motivated seller! These banks owned, foreclosed properties could take a long time to close. And when the water turns on well things could be a bit different. So let me know if you are looking to purchase a house to flip, or to live in and own a home.
