Are you using a realtor? A realtor can you help discern what is available out there. You shouldn't rule out short sales or foreclosures. There are some great deals out there, timing is everything. You really need a realtor who is knowledgeable and aggressive. What is your time line? Are you wanting to close in time for the tax credit? Maybe you need to consider new construction. As mentioned before D.R. Horton is offering some great deals. However; even if you go new construction, I strongly recommend getting a realtor to represent you. There is no additional cost to you for this. If you are not working with a realtor, I would be more than happy to help you with this.
There are certain price ranges that the REO market has great competition. It would be best to let me know what price you are looking for and then narrow down these properties by how they are sold. You can also search via our website for non REO homes. http://www.mymajesticproperties.com
There are always some standard sales. Many flippers are in the market as well which are considered standard. Your realtor should be able to pull a list for you that is just standard so you can see what is out there.
D.R. Horton has two communities that are open, building and selling well within City in the Hills masterplan.
Triana offers new homes priced from $172,000 (contact Betsy De Alba) and Montelena offers larger homes priced from $239,990 for a 2,600 square foot home. These homes are new and come with a full builder warranty. Most include special incentives and some can be purchased now and close by June 30th to take advantage of the Federal Tax Credit. Sales offices are open Thursday - Monday from 10am to 5pm. Best of luck!
We were just wondering why you're not interested in REO propertiesâ€¦ is it the competition, or are you just not finding anything in good condition?
Anyway, finding a regular sale (not bank owned or a short sale) is very simple - not that there will be many of them.
Our site http://www.MovingBakersfield.com has an option to show only REO properties, but not to exclude them. We can however, set up a search that does just the opposite, but it has to be done from the administrators side of the site.
If you are interested, we could do this for you - just let us know!

Contact a realtor in your area. Buyers agents do not cost the buyer a cent. All realtor's commissions are usually covered through the commission charged the seller.
