Carly, unfortunately, this house is a "lis Pendens" filing, which means that someone has filed a lien against the homeowner for an unpaid bill. That is why the amount is so small. If it goes ultimately to a short sale it will probably sell for fair market value, or will be bought back by the bank and relisted with a realtor if the homeowner doesn't pay off the lien, which they frequently do. If you are looking for a bargain, a realtor can really help you do that--you as the buyer don't pay for the services of a realtor--the seller does. So, why not take advantage of our service? I would love to work with you--I am a qualified military relocation specialist, and also work with short sales and foreclosures. Please give me a call or send me an email so that I can assist you in finding a great deal in a home in this area!!
