Properties without a full street address and an attractive price are usually too good to be true.

Condos will usually have high HOA dues as pointed out earlier. Also check how many condos are being listed for lease in that neighborhood. If the number is high, it will affect occupancy rates, rent prices etc and may not meet your income expectation.

Good Luck with your search.

1. I don't see any foreclosures currently listed at Marquis. This is likely what they're talking about.
2. If there is no address, typically it is not really for sale.
3. Condos rarely work well for investments here.....due to super high HOA near $300/month at Marquis.

If you still really like this place, or if you are looking for a place to live vs. invest, that might be a great option. In fact one of the few options in this price range.

You can see what is currently for sale at Marquis here:…

The closest listing that I found is already under contract. It was 14277 Preston Road #622F in Dallas, TX and is currently under contract pending the finalization of the sale. There is also another condo for sale near Preston Road in Dallas in the $65,000 range. It's located at the Oaks of Preston Ridge condos.

There is usually no cost to you as a buyer for a Realtor to represent you. Having a Realtor represent you makes the search process easier, and allows you to have professional advice and assistance through the entire process.

Hi Manish,

Like most agent says o nhere that the link that was provided didnt give an actual address.

Which means this listing is still going thru foreclosure process. Often times, it takes about 1 month - 6 months for a REO property to become avaliable.

Meanwhile you can check with local realtors to see what is on the market that is active fits your criteria.

Thanks and good luck!

Manish, do you need to borrow money to purchase this property? If so, you'll need to get pre-approved before submitting an offer. If you can pay cash, be prepared to provide proof of funds. It's been on the market for a while so the Seller might be interested in negotiating with you on the price. You need good representation so you can get the best price and close with no surprises. I can assist you and represent your interests. It's free to you. The seller will pay my commission. It's a no-brainier for you to have a realtor on your side. As the top recommended broker in Plano, I'm very glad to assist you if you want to purchase this, or any other investment property, especially in Plano (my backyard). Call or text me anytime at 214-808-3100.
