Most of us can also go to the Auctions, these are good ways to buy, but do have some risks, such as HOA liens and back taxes, evicting sellers which can have a little bit of problems I won't go into here. If a tenant is in the home with a reasonable / valid lease you may have to honor it if you buy at auction.
It is just a good idea that you know some of the issues that can occur with the different type of purchases. Your Realtor should have your best interest in mind or get another profession! One short sale we had listed had an offer on it at $165K and the bank wouldn't approve it. It then came on the market as an REO at $112K. Sometimes short sales aren't as good of a purchase as REOs, but this is not the rule either.
There is a community that they are selling at Auction about 35,000 - 45,000 homes that are less than 5 days old ! You can rent them in less than a week

as you can see you are going to get many realtors who are willing and capable of helping you find many qualified short sales & foreclosed properties in the East Valley & Queen Creek area. Are you a cash buyer? What price range are you looking to purchase in? Are you looking to fix and flip or rent out? These are important questions to consider when determining where to purchase and what time of property to purchase AND if you can look into the possibility of auctions. Please feel free to contact me direct to chat and you are welcome to visit my website and search the many deals out there.

Generally buying a short sale is not going to be your best priced investment. Many banks don't get them approved only to have them come on as an REO at a lower price.
We work with several investors and can assist you with your purchases. There are pockets that tend to sell stronger than other areas which would be one thing to consider. Sometimes you can pick up good deals at the trustee sales as well. What you purchase also will depend on what you want in your portfolio. Fix and Flip, Rentals, Buy to hold for a while for a turn around in say 5 years, and possible some for retirement income...
If we can be of help, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Recognized in the Phoenix Business Journal as one of the Top 50 Realtors in the Valley!
The Gilbert, Chandler and Queen Creek area offers some incredible values today.
What strategy do yo intend to take? Are you looking at buy and hold or flip? Will you focus on cash flow or appreciation at the end of the day? If hold how long do you thing you would want to hold?
Sorry for the questions but I like to determine what you really want before we start to target any one area.

I work with a lot of investors, if you would like some help or have some questions please feel free to contact me. I do not have any short sales on the market at the moment and I do not list for banks but I have a lot of experience working with them for buyers. You may want to consider east Mesa and San Tan Valley as well, most of Queen Creek is now the new San Tan Valley. I do not do much in Chandler, but I am very familiar with the markets in Gilbert, East Mesa, San Tan Valley, Queen Creek and Florence.
