Dear Karin,

This is a property that is being listed for sale via RealtyTrac which is a subscription service that offers information on foreclosure and pre-foreclosure properties. There is no way to determine the condition of the home without actually going in and seeing it.

The price that they list here is typically not the actual price but instead either; a suggested starting bid, or a “price” based on either the tax valuation of the property or the value of the identifiable liens on the property at this time.

A property that is identified as Lis Pendens means that the property is part of a current and ongoing legal proceeding. This suggests that the property owner has exceeded their “grace period” during which they could have brought their mortgage loan back into a paid current status and that the lender in question has probably filed a legal motion to begin a foreclosure process.

My colleagues and I subscribe to RealtyTrac to assist home buyers by providing them with the full set of publicly available information on the property in question.

If you’d like to contact me directly, I’d be happy to provide you with the information on this property. I’d also be happy to assist you with the purchase of this or any other foreclosure properties in the area. Let me know if you have any questions or need any additional information. Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,
