This house hasn't become active on the market yet. Once a bank "buys back" a house at a courthouse auction, it usually takes a couple of months for it to become an active bank-owned home for sale. We should see it come on the market in the next 30-60 days.

If you'd like to contact me at, I would be more than happy to notify you as soon as it is available so that you can be among the first to see it. Doing so, would allow you to submit an offer quickly should it meet your needs.

Any agent can send you information concerning foreclosures. ALL foreclosures must be listed for sale in the MLS system. Lenders, Gov. agencies will only deal with buyers who are represented by an agent. I am the I have been dealing with foreclosures for 33 years. You need an agent that deals with foreclosures, and understands the bidding process. Call me anytime! Jay Hasbrouck, owner JC-Real Estate 817-996-4444

If there is no address associated with the property, in most cases it is not really for sale. It's a ploy to get you to buy a list at a monthly charge that will have you chasing all over town.

Send me an email and I will be happy to provide a list of foreclosures for free to you. Also let me know a little bit about what you are looking for in terms of price and size and we'll try to tailor the list to your needs.

Once a home forecloses it actually goes up for auction first and would have to be bought on the court house steps as an as-is cash deal. If the home does not sell at auction then it will go through a listing process and eventually placed on the market with an agent. If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know. I will be working late tonight and you can call, text or email me anytime. Best wishes!

Hi Lisa,

I would contact an agent in your area. All foreclosures are listed in the MLS. Lot's of people think otherwise for some reason but banks want as many eyes on them so they can get as much money as possible. While a foreclose can be a great deal just because it is does not necessarily mean that is is a good buy.

A good agent will also help educate you on the market so you can make a informed purchase decision.

Best of luck to you.
