Problems with Buying A House That Been Empty for 4 years in Fort Myers, Florida
Michael, if the property has been empty for 4 years, start with a thorough home inspection and extermination. Because no property remains "empty" that long in Florida!

What do owners/banks expect as a "good or winning bid" in the US? Are bids expected to be higher than the asking price?
I am not crazy about the word bid, makes it sound like an auction. I would prefer to use the word Offer. All sellers, banks or persons, all have different expectations with acceptable o ... more

how can you determine if a property is still available?
Find a Realtor you want to work with - they can do all the leg work, check status etc. Most websites are not 100% up to date for listing status.

I am in the middle of a short sale & i was just served a foreclosure summons. Should I pay $ to respond or not? I'm not staying in the house.
This is a question for a local attorney who knows your finacial standing and what you have to lose or not lose. You should be a able to negotiate a 30 minute consultation for free.

Just found mold from a bathroom leak in the short sale we are purchasing. Can we ask the bank to lower the price?
My experience with banks is that they will respond to mold if a professional noted it.

Just realize that will add more time to your closing.

Good luck!

Michael Emery answered:
If a condo is forclosed on by fredy mac, how far back can HOA go collecting back dues
You would need to check with a Florida attorney as the law varies from state to state. In Minnesota the HOA can collect up to 6 months of dues from the bank that owns the property.

I am currently renting a property in fort myers and found out the owner is in pre foreclosure. My current realtor wants to raise my rent as the owner
Your best bet is to contact a real estate attorney. If you call any government agency they will not give you legal advice.

Best of luck to you!

The first mortgage hloder is and individual,that has died.How do I find the estate information?
You might try to send a letter with "address correction" to see if the mail is getting forwarded to an heir. You pay a small fee to the Post Office for this service.

What is the minimum offer at a foreclosure auction in Florida based on? My county does not list a minimum offer.
Some lender sets their minimum bid below their final judgement amount. You can subscribe to a service that may provide this info.
