Sounds like you have gotten your response regarding bank owned homes in Birmingham. Everyone wants a short cut but the mls used by all agents ...gets the listings as soon as they are available. Choosing a realtor will give you the heads up. Like many who have already responsed, I have lived in the area all my life and have a good feel for the best buys. Best to choose a realtor not several. If you choose one that focuses on your specifications, they get back to you quickly as to what needs to be pounced on. Not all deals are bank owned. Love to assist.

You will want to work with a realtor to set you up with a daily email showing all properties that fit your criteria. You will be on the first to know search so you dont miss out on any. Let me know if I can help you out. 248-660-3236. Its a great time to buy but there has been more buyers than inventory so homes seem to go fast.

Working with a local agent is the best way to keep up on new listings. I have been noticing quite a few foreclosures coming to market over the last few weeks. Consumer websites may get buyers excited about these offerings, but are not updated as quickly as the MLS, which Realtors use. Many new listings come to market, and are under contract within days. The best way to catch these offerings in time is to work closely with an agent.

Hello,

The most effective and efficient way to accomplish your goal is to allow a Realtor to serve as your Buyer's Agent. He/She can program a search to keep you up to date and informed of any and all bank-owned homes fitting your profile of interest.

Interview several agents and follow your level of comfort.

I'm available to apply for the position.

Regards,

BEST ANSWER

Kathy Persha, Agent, Michigan There are currently six bank owned properties on the market in BIrmingham. However of those six, only one is still available. The other five have contracts on them and are pending. Bank owned properties in Birmingham are going to move very fast. To have the best chance of locating one, you would need to be in constant contact with an agent who can send you listings the day that they become available. Also, I agree with the other comments that keeping your options open and looking at all properties, not just bank-owned will give you the greatest choice.

I have lived in Birmingham for over 35 years. I know the community well and would be happy to work with you to find a great property at a great price. Let's talk and I can begin sending you listings today.

The BEST thing to do is to find a local agent, meet and see if you would like to work with them and share with them what you are looking to buy. When you have a good agent working for you they can provide you all the information and assistance you will need to find the right property.

Let us know if we can help.

LW,
There are some great options in the market, some of the best deals are in fact not bank owned properties.
If you have not selected an agent I would be happy to assist you with your search for a home.

A local Real Estate agent should be able to e-mail you a list of bank owned properties.
