The question for you is, why are you looking for these type of homes? Do you feel that they are the best value at this time?
I would be happy to advise you of some other ways in which to get a "good deal" on a home within the area. We don't tend to see bankruptcy homes these days, but we do see short sales and bank owned properties. Not all short sales/bank owned homes are as much of a value as they used to be.
Please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I can explain the different options and what would work best for you.
Interview a few Agents who know the area.
Our office is in Mountain Lakes, just around the corner from Lake Parsippany.

Banks, on the other hand, tend to understand they need to discount the property at least a little bit in order to get it sold due to its being considered a distress sale. And even the banks are not offering discounts as deep as they were.
