Hi Jason,

If you are serious about buying a home, you need to align yourself with a full-time, experienced local Realtor who can help you to find the house that meets your needs. Most of the time anything you see from third party websites aren't up to date.

You can shoot me an email, state exactly what you're looking for and I'd be glad to send you a list of properties even including foreclosures that are currently on the market.

You can also start by visiting http://www.melissatrang.ebby.com to check other homes currently on the market.

Thank you and I look forward to working with you!

What you have seen on Trulia is a notice of default or foreclosure posted by Realty Trac which is a reporting service. Realty Trac takes information from public records and provides it by subscription to its members who have registered and agreed to pay a fee for the information. What you see on Trulia is an abbreviated report from Realty Trac in order to entice you to sign up for their service.

It is unlikely that you will be able to buy this house for the price posted on Trulia. That is the amount of a default and has no relationship to the value of the property. The house may be offered for sale at a later date but it will most likely be listed with a Realtor and priced at a price that reflects the market price for the area.

If you are serious about buying a house, you need to align yourself with a full-time, experienced local Realtor who can help you to find the house that meets your needs. Your Realtor can help you to learn about the current market conditions, realistic house prices, loan qualifications, negotiating strategy, escrow management, inspections and everything else that goes into the purchase of a home.

Sometimes I can find these, but in this case I don't see it.
I seriously doubt you can find a property in Preston Hollow for $100,000 though.
Probably that's the tax lien on the property and there's another $200-$300,000 to pay off the mortgage.

If there is no address listed, these are hard to chase. Could be a year or two before they ever come on the market if ever.

I have seen some nice properties for sale in this zip code in the low 100s. Let me know what you're looking for and I'll see if I can find some matches.

Don't waste you time with this property. First of all, the figure that you see associated with it is not accurate. The lowest price on this street is over $200,000 and the average is $300,000+. Even if it is a foreclosure (no record on the MLS for this property), it won't be listed for less than $100,000, and probably not even for less than $200,000. The information furnished is highly unreliable. Take our word for it. We see this a lot with similar inquiries.

Jason, This listing on Trulia is inaccurate. The property is not for sale. Realty Trac posts this type of advertising to generate subscribers to their foreclosure site. I specialize in foreclosures and can assist with your search - the foreclosure market is fast moving and it can be complicated to make this type of purchase. Please let me know if I can assist.
