The property closed November 14th. It is absolutely best to work with a Broker experienced in the area you are looking in. 723 N Trumbull Ave sold fro $4100 more than the REO asking price. This is not uncommon because you will have several people looking at the same property and you should give your highest and best offer based, condition of the property and comps. Remember, a large number of people looking to purchase these properties have done their homework and are generally cash buyers. Cash is king.
Best of Luck,
