Yes you can contact a REALTOR first- if you should choose to do so- call my Anytime Sell Phone and I will be happy to assist you. I am a member of the local boards in Daytona, New Smyrna and Orlando Area including West Volusia.
With that said- feel free to contact your LOCAL REALTOR anytime. 386-690-6546
Oh and PS- Real Estate is a local market- and prices locally are NOT declining- in fact they are on the rise and have been on the rise for 8+ months now-
Deland is generally less exspensive than Daytona and Port Orange. Depending on where you work, and how long you are willig to commute, Orange City and Deltona may be options for you to consider.
Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

We have bond money for first time home buyers-- up to $7,500 depending on your income. So your first step is to contact one of the "approved lenders" on the list that can get you the bond money. If you go with a lender NOT on the list, they may not be able to get the bond money for you. Go here and select your county and number in your household:
You will need a minimum of 620 "middle" FICO score, too.
If your credit history and/or debt load will not allow you to get a typical mortgage, you do have other options. Try a credit union and if they will not grant a mortgage you can then try: http://www.NACA.com
Hope this helps.
All the best,
Do you know your credit scores if you are a couple and you may qualify for FHA although some do not fo a lower down payment.
There are parts of Deland closer to Port O and Daytona. There are also deals everywhere.

Good for you! Itâ€™s great that youâ€™re seeing what an opportunity it is to buy right now!
I would you recommend you meet with a realtor now to get the home buying process going .Your agent should a great wealth of professional contacts that will make the home buying process smooth and enjoyable for you. I would advise that you get prequalified with a lender so you know what price point/budget to stay within. In addition, itâ€™s a necessity to have a preapproval from a lender when you get ready to make an offer on the bank foreclosures
Good Luck and Congratulations!
Always a good idea to speak with lenders first (or concurrently) and obtaining a pre- approval from the lender that you are most satisfied with. Yes many agents also assist buyers with obtaining financing and in fact some are also mortgage brokers as well though that could be problematic

Also - check out my website - it has access to the two largest MLS in the area so you can look at east Volusia and west Volusia on the same site. It has tons of market and neighborhood information.
