Once agian thank you everyone for your responses.
Are you certain this home was foreclosed on? I did check the tax rolls and it does not show as bank owned today. While tax rolls are not always up to date to the minute, that tells me the foreclosure (if indeed there was one) was fairly recent.
Unless you have some sentimental attachment to this particular house (you grew up there or something like that) if you want to buy a house your best bet is to work with a local Realtor. If you need a recommendation for one, email me. If you simply want to browse for foreclosed homes just check that box on the search tab on my web site.
