Looks like it went back to the bank in March, and had been listed for sale at 250k. It is now for sale at $209,900. Sounds like it could be difficult to finance due to the dome, so if you will be taking a loan, you should talk with your lender first. It is under auction terms and tomorrow 8/26 is the last day to submit. Plan on a 5% buyers fee as part of auction terms. Let me know if I can help! ... more

Hey Jim!

So sorry to hear you feel your realtor is not doing a good job! Usually if you express your concerns, a realtor would be more than happy to fix the problem or help come up with a solution! Maybe ask to meet with your realtor and their broker to get some things hammered out!

Good luck!

Hi Kristi,

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. The best advise I could give you is to check with both the lender and the trustee to confirm if you sale is taking place on the date they scheduled. There are many homes that get postponed for various reasons.

Confirm with the trustee on the 19th close to the end of the day to see if the home was actually sold and if it sold to a 3rd party or reverted back to the lender. It depends on who takes ownership on how they might proceed.

Either way, I would recommend that you prepare to move now and sit tight for a knock on the door once the home goes through the trustee sale.

Best Regards,

James Wehner

OK so let’s get this straight. Lemme guess what happened because I know Queen Creek quite well. She’s foreclosing because the new home community where she bought had the bank give out loans like big Macs at McDonalds. Cheap and fast. Back in 2005-2009 anyone can get a loan for $250K even if you where unemployed and on drugs. So yer friend bought a house when she couldn’t afford the place in the first place. Took in roommates and did everything possible to pay the interest only mortgage but still didn’t work.

So now she’s looking for affordable housing. You need to get on a waiting list for about 8 years. Since she was a previous home owner not looking so good. Her FICO is dinged with a foreclosure that’s 8 years bad credit rating. Bad credit rating means I don’t pay bills on time. If she buys an affordable housing unit or house she can only sell at the rate of what the affordable rate is.

I believe that if they had filed a judgement against you prior to the bankruptcy, they do have the right to pursue payment. I'm surprised they continue to pursue it so diligently though. ... more

Monir Mamoun answered:
Wow, no maintenance either. You need to check your contract as far as HOA dues go. If all those things are due to you, you can withhold rent necessary to pay for repairs. Doesn't sound like your landlord can pay for a lawyer to sort things out.

But you should speak with an attorney. You don't have a right to withhold all rent, though you may be able to withhold rent equivalent to the HOA dues and your security deposit as well, especially if your landlord cannot provide proof of escrowed security deposits.

You do have rights as a Tenant. Thanks to new laws in place to protect tenant rights in the event the home goes to foreclosure. Check this out the attached website for the information at the Arizona Attorney General's Office. If you want information regarding Cash for Keys don't hesitate to contact me.

You can go to and look up the information manually or have a REALTOR assist you with it as well.

I Hope that helps.

Jeff Blair answered:
This home had an original mortgage of $108,000 in 2003 and the home is worth considerably less now. the only option is to try and sell it around a break even point or short sell it if too much is owed. I would need to know how much is owed on the property to know if it is worth trying to save. Current market value is about $75,000. If you can get an accepted offer before the auction date it should be able to be postponed.
Hope this helps

If you need more detail feel free to email me or cal...Hope this helped a little... ... more

Jim Mitchell answered:
Hi Tom. According to the trustee's website,, it went back to the bank on 6/18/09 at 10:00am. It was auctioned at the trustee's site in Phoenix and no one bid on it, which means the bank that forecloses on it takes it back and now must sell it.
It should be coming on the market again soon once the bank chooses an agent to list it. With all of the moratoriums on foreclosures in the past 6 months being imposed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, a lot of the banks are taking it slow when it comes to re-listing the property once they foreclose on it. It sometimes takes up to 6 months to get it relisted. I've also seen the banks relist them the next day. There's no way to tell.
By doing it this way, the banks believe that it will slow the decline in property values; it's supply and demand. If the demand remains strong, and the supply is down, then prices/values should remain fairly stable. It's when there is way too much inventory (like the past 1 1/2 yrs) that the property values decline rapidly. I suppose it's better than flooding the market with hundreds if not thousands of listings at a time.
If you're interested in this home, let me know and I'll keep a watch on it for you. Send me an email with your contact info and I'll keep an eye on it and let you know once it becomes available.

Stew raises an interesting point: stop paying rent. if you opt to use this strategy, then you should arrange to escrow your rent until you've resolved the issues with your deposit(s), because you still owe the landlord rent--regardless of whether or not his/her property is in foreclosure.

In any case, whether you opt to stay or go you have several options.

GO FOR IT!! The bank will require an income statement and pull a credit report most likely, if you are keeping up, they would definatley entertain reducing the APR to keep you in the house. They won't reduce what you owe, but they would work with you on the rate to reduce the monthly payment. ... more
