Julia P Flem…, Other/Just Looking in Dallas, TX

I love a home that is a foreclosure. It is in the MLS homes online but I am being told that there are title

Asked by Julia P Fleming, Dallas, TX Tue Jan 20, 2009

problems and it has been taken off the market. Weeks later, It is still in the MLS listings and I still want to make an offer. I can not get the listing agent to call me and the Broker doesn't know the answers to my questions. I want to know the nature of the title problems. Can I get this information somewhere without an agent?

You need a buyer's agent that will represent you. That agent will know what to do and it doesn't cost you anything.

I will be happy to help you find an experienced agent. Where is the property located?

Hello Julia,

Without an agent working on your behalf, it will be tough. I would suggest hiring a good Realtor and having your Realtor put an offer on the home for you, (after doing complete due diligence).

Keep in mind foreclosed homes can take a long time not just to close but to get an answer on, as most are handled by committee and proceed at a snails pace......

Good luck in your endeavors,

Jay

Julia,
It may be tough to find out yourself. You could start with a title company in the area where the home is, but they may want to charge you for the title search. Depending on where the house is located we might be able to figure out who the title company was and call them directly.
In this case I strongly suggest you get a buyers agent. Title sounds messy and you might benefit from the expertise and resources. After all buyer representation is normally free to you as the buyer. The seller has already contracted to pay.

A Title company or the listing agent can get their title company to run a title search on the property, and you can find out the issues......contact an agent in your area and ask those questions....

Good Luck with your search
