In regards to what you were asking about "how much are closing costs approximately" that too can be answered on case by case situation. In most cases as I mentioned above in the short sale business the banks will typically cover up to 3% of the closing costs. Many time our buyers don't use that whole 3% but it depends greatly as well on what the purchase price is...
There are a lot of great deals out there and still many to come.
All the best in your searches and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
