this property is under agreement. There may be a possibility that it may come back on the market so have your agent keep an eye on it for you. If you do not have a buyer's agent and you are ready and able to buy, I suggest you get one to assist you, one that is also familiar with reos, if that is what you are looking for. REOs purchase processes are a bit different from the traditonal ones. It's always good to have someone on your side and it does not cost you anything. email@example.com
