As you are probably finding, it will be very difficult to finds homes not listed on MLS. Looking at FSBO websites is your best option. Some FSBO's may pay to get their property listed on MLS so that will offer more exposure. Many FSBO's tend to be over priced though.

I am not really sure that a bank would ever approve a Short Sale that is not listed with a Real Estate Agent. The bank is typically going to require marketing exposure for the property prior to agreeing to take a loss on it.

If you are looking to purchase a property, working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your mortgage options. To get Pre-Qualified for your purchase, you can submit your request online at to get started.

It's more than reasonable to find something within your $100K price range. There are numerous sources to find these listings online, as well as through a Realtor.

If you are new to the housing market, or prefer to have assistance while shopping, I would strongly suggest gaining the support of a local Realtor to show you the ropes. They will know the specifics of the area you are looking, and be able to answer any questions you may have about the location you are shopping.

It is also important, if you are serious about buying, to get pre-qualified for a dollar amount... Many times, with lower priced homes, there are cash buyers that swoop in and take a deal while other potential buyers are working on financing... Get pre-qualified for financing prior to selecting your new home... that way, if you see one you like, you can place a bid right then and there!

Good luck with your search! I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
