As others have said, using photos and a website to buy a property is NOT a good idea! Get an agent to work with who will provide you with current listings and will help you navigate the minefield of foreclosures. Trulia is not the way to do it. Best of luck.

Although Trulia is now listing homes that have received a foreclosure filing it does not mean that the home has been foreclosed on. The notice of default still means the homeowner owns the home. You cannot circumvent the homeowner and go to the bank.

This property is not listed on the market for sale. The notice of default was just filed, the bank does not own the property, the homeowner still does. The actual act of foreclosure does not come until the auction date, which could take anywhere from 1-2 years depending on what the homeowner ultimately decides to do.

In the meantime this homeowner may be trying for a loan modification or may ultimately do a short sale which at that point they will be required by short sale guidelines to have it officially listed on the market.

Please feel free to call me if needing help with these types of properties or in search of a home listed in a short sale or foreclosure.

I agree with Bill 100%. You want to actually see the the place. I have been to listing that look great in photos but when seen in person with a client you see flaws or potential problems.

Working with a Broker will in the long run save you time and money. You can also contact the website that has posted the ad… target="_blank" rel="nofollow">…

Best of Luck.

Typically when a photo is taken from above the property like this, its not a real listing. Trulia is famous for these. If your looking to buy, get a good buyers agent. its free to use their services. Interview two or three and go with the one you mesh best with!

I would highly recommend that you DO NOT submit an offer based solely on the pictures provided. Work with a REALTOR, view the property, and if it meets your criteria submit an offer. The Realtor's expertise can save you a lot of time and $$$.
