It is in the hands of the Home Owner if he/she wants to post the photos of his/her property on the site.

Bank asset managers generally will not deal with individuals wanting to purchase foreclosed homes. When the properties are ready to put on the market they are either listed with local real estate agents or are placed on one of the auction websites for bidding. Sorry, you'll have to wait. ... more

No bank will sell to you directly. It is unusually long but the reasons could be title issues, house tied up in probate, a junior lien or even IRS lien...

Additionally it's often impossible to contact a bank regarding a foreclosed home. About all you can do is either keep track of the property or have a real estate agent set up an auto search on MLS for when the property is listed. But even then there's no guarantee that the investor will sell or whether the property will ever see the open market.

Since "foreclosure" is a process, change in ownership may not have occured yet. Are you renting the home, or are you the owner? If you are the homeowner and your name is on the mortgage, you can call the bank who is servicing your loan to request the status of the loan. They can give you details regarding your current standing.

Now, if you're renting and are unsure if the landlord is going through foreclosure, this can be tricky because, you won't have permission to discuss details regarding the loan. You may want to contact the landlord regarding your concerns.

If you're behind on payments and are no longer able to maintain the mortgage, you may wish to first try loan modification, deed in lieu or short sale. Avoiding foreclosure should be a priority.

Give me a call, text or send me an email and I'll break down all of your options.

To make it easier, in addition to my real-time map-based property search that is linked diretly from the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service) database, I can set you up with FREE listing alerts.

This way, you don't have to worry about searching every 5 minutes to see what you missed, the listings will come directly to your email. The results are based on your specific criteria (e.g. Location, Price Range, Minimum Bedrooms, Minimum Bathrooms, etc.).

To set up the FREE listing alerts, go to:

With a good job, and debt wiped out, you should be able to rent for awhile and save up for a good down payment and you may be able to buy on a REC (typically about 10% down) and still take advantage of this down mkt and low financing costs. I am happy to help navigate this strategy. ... more

This is a very common question people have, but it is not a formula that works 100% of the time. A better question to ask is what is the house worth? Once you determine what the house could sell for in this market, you can compare that price to the current list price, and make some determinations from there. I have seen plenty of REO sales that have gone WELL over list price because the current market value of the home exceeds the current list price. Similarly, I have seen many REO sales that the list price FAR exceeds the current market value. In either case there will be different approaches to negotiations.

As far as pricing for future depreciation, well... That is a sticky situation. No one can predict what the future will hold. It could appreciate greatly in the next year due to a new company opening or sheer development in the area. There are lots of variables in this equation and the best thing to do is take all into consideration and arrive at a value that YOU feel comfortable with. It is futile to discuss anything more/less. It ALWAYS comes down to the buyers comfort level on a particular property.

There are plenty of choices out there. If this one gets away, there is a always another one just around the bend.

Negotiate HARD! It is a buyer's market and a unique opportunity for wealth building by entering the market during a depressed real estate cycle. The property is ripe for the plucking, have some fun with it!

Good Luck! I hope you find what you are looking for and that the property grows to be an astounding asset to you.

No. HUD homes are sold in "as is" condition. They have not been repaired sense the late 1970's.
Prior to that time they were fully repaired and sold with a "bumper to bumper" warranty. ... more

Properties in this situation require a different level of expertise. Knowledge of market trends, Pricing that is "value priced" rather than priced to satisfy payoff obligations, and navigating thru the contractual , liens, title aspects of the transaction. There are some brokers with such knowledge that have investors who seek such opportunities. That broker would have knowledge in several areas. Experience in marketing, REO properties and a knowledgeable team to capture the best deals. I have some ideas that may be useful and would seek new clients and produce a positive outcome for all parties.

Mike, Dennis just provided a great answer with lots of good information. I can tell you from my experience with short sales that just because the 1st is so far upside down that there is no value for the 2nd does not mean a short sale can't work. The 2nd will realize this and usually be willing to release the lien as fully satisfied (no deficiency judgment following you) for as little as $1000 in your case - need to make sure they agree to the full release before signing anything! The 1st will usually be willing to pay the 2nd $1000 if the offer still nets them more than if they foreclosed, as Dennis pointed out. This number is usually about 85% of CURRENT MARKET VALUE, which they will determine by Broker Price Opinion or appraisal - make sure to meet these people at your house and explain that you are trying to avoid foreclosure and point out all the problems with the house - explain that the value needs to be accurate! You might also offer them some coffee - my point is that social engineering can help make sure they do not overvalue your house. In order to do all this, almost all lenders will require that you list the house with a licensed agent, so take the info Dennis and I have provided and call a few agents and ask them about a short sale, if it sounds like they are explaining the things we have explained, then you might have found one who can help you. You will have to price aggressively. Best of luck to you Mike! ... more

David Stafford answered:
It is usually possible, but depends on a number of variables. How many months behind are you? It typically takes about 4 to 6 mos for the foreclosure process in NM, though that depends on the aggressiveness of your lender. Have you received a notice of lis pendens? That will be your first formal public notice that they are proceeding with foreclosure. The most important thing you can do is open a dialogue with your lender. Do not stick your head in the sand and hope it will go away. It varies from lender to lender, but many are willing to modify loans now - negotiate new and better terms for your loan. Alternatively, if you are willing to sell, many lenders are willing to take the proceeds from a legitimate sale (lenders almost always require real estate broker involvement) as full satisfaction, even if it is less than what is still owed. How long have you owned your house? If more than 4 years, you likely have some equity and may be able to sell and even make enough money help find a new place for you and your family. In either sale case, you need to price aggressively to sell quickly. If a notice of lis pendens has been recorded, you have likely received a large number of letters from investors. Some of these can actually help, but you must be very careful of these options as there are a number of scams out there and, regrettably, many unscrupulous "investors". Be extremely cautious and get professional help on your side if dealing with any of these folks. My answer is getting longwinded, but the most important thing I can say (again) is that you need to have frequent open communications with your lender to resolve this. You might also want to get an experienced local real estate professional involved as a consultant in order to help determine which of these options is best for you. Best of luck to you BJ! ... more
