Help the community by answering this question:



I agree with the prior answer: this home has been an expired (or off the market) listing since 7/09. The last listing information does not indicate this was a foreclosure.

When I search the City Of Jacksonville property appraiser's site, I see there were some preliminary foreclosure documents filed in April 2009, and the property is now potentially a bank owned foreclosure.

If you had an offer on this property that did not work out, and you were not in default of the contract, than your deposit should have been returned to you. If you, as the buyer, however, did default on the contract, then the deposit would not have been returned to you.

I recommend you contact the broker your agent worked for (in this case John Norris Realty) to state your case and see if you qualify to get your deposit back. The broker holding the deposit is really the key to solving this puzzle.

Good luck & if I can help further, please let me know.

It does not sound like you are getting satisfaction with the Real company you have been dealing with. If you want some help, call me. I would be glad to help you

Hi Renee--
To find out more about 1350 Jones Rd. you need view the public records. The link is attached here for Duval County. You will then need to place the sellers name into the appropiate place (last name, first name) and you should have a document trail.

It either is in the foreclosure process or is a bank owned foreclosure. IF it is a bank owned foreclosure the bank name, in this case Bank of America (if I followed the trail correctly), will be where the owners name is found.

Keep in mind that there has been a lot of change in the mortgage-foreclosure-process. To find out what's been going on you can search keywords: bank foreclosure moratorium and see what pops up...
Note that Florida is a judicial state.

Hope this is helpful in some way--remember to contact your agent. They should be your first resource!

It shows that it expired in 7/2009. Not sure why they would still have your binder. Did the deal fall through?
