If you don't have a strong, experienced Buyer's Agent, then run for your life!
If you don't know what you're doing, and don't have competent representation, then run for your life!
Is that the kind of HELP you were asking for??
I'm Rick Rhoden with West USA realty and I live in Springfield Lakes so I know the home values. There are a couple of houses for sale from $147,000-$199,000 right now. If you go to the web link I've provided it will show you those houses for sale. If for some reason the link does not work you can go to http://www.rickrhoden.com and go to Subdivision Search. If I can be of help please let me know. I can be reached at email@example.com.
At this writing there were 17 homes available in Springfield Lakes ranging from $147,900 to $354,500. The average listing price per square foot is approximately is $132/sqft. Over the past 3 months, there were 16 sales, with average price per square foot of $109/sqft.
This seems to indicate that the house you are interested may be a good deal. But again, this is only a very preliminary assessment. We would need to research the house in more detail to reach a conclusion whether or not it is a good price.

I hope this helps.

Exciting area and exciting market! As my fellow peers have mentioned there are all kinds of factors that play into the short sale. It is really difficult to tell you whether it is a good buy without knowing other pieces of information. Do yourself a favor and work with experience if you are looking into a home purchase otherwise take Randy's advice and "Run for your life!" Today's agent needs to have knowledge of the process and be able to relate that to you. Before I was a realtor, I was a lender so I am very familiar with the short sale and financing aspect. I would love to share some valuable experience.
