There are too many rental scammers out there, I advise you to try to go directly to this complex to an office they may have there vs trusting whoever might respond to you here. The rental link doesn't show an office phone # or a property management name or phone #. This is a Red Flag to me. ... more

Dear parandosh10,
The very best way to put an offer on any property you are interested in is by working with a "Buyer Agent". There are agents here on Trulia who will be happy to meet with you to discuss your home buying needs and help you every step of the way! ... more

Ihettenbergh, when a property owner is behind payments the Lenders send a Notice of Default(NOD) and Realty Track a website monitors this type of action. Trulia has a relationship with Realty Track and you see these types of posts. That does not mean the home is for sale. Keep in mind even if it became available on the market it would be priced close or below the market but not for 10% of the Market Value.

If you are looking for great deals feel free to reach out to me directly and we can discuss wants,needs and price points.

Look forward to your contact.

Hi Tina,

This property is actually not for sale. For some reason Trulia reports all "notices of default" meaning that the owner is behind on their mortgage payment, which is the amount that you posted ($398,000). Most likely the owner is working on a loan modification or short sale and the property won't become available on the open market. Even if it does come on the market as a foreclosure, it will be at a price that the bank deems to be the market value for the property, which will be higher than $398,000.

If you have any questions about this or are interested in buying foreclosures, feel free to contact me, my info is below. Thank you!

Dear Rebecca,
Why not form a business relationship with a local realtor who can show you available property and answer your questions personally?

Hello Emmateti,

This property has started the foreclosure process because a loan secured by the property is in default. The homeowner still has the opportunity to stop the foreclosure by catching up on defaulted payments or paying off the entire loan balance usually by refinancing or selling the property.
Please feel free to give me a call or email if you are lookin for a similar home.

Best regards,

Aaron Mirsky answered:
Hi David,

This property is in "pre-forclosure" this means that the owners have defaulted on the loan and it is scheduled to go to auction. The amount that you see as the list price is often the amount the owner owes on a loan or in back payment. In this case the judgement is for $265,000. Soon an broker working on the banks behalf will market the property at market value. The lowest price that you are likely to find in the area this property is located is the $600-700k range.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Hi Honza.hliva, there is an old saying you can not get "something for nothing". When you see something like it is too good to be True it is not reality. The odds are that this is the 2nd loan that is in default. The average home in Venice is around $850,000. That means 50% are below and 50% are above the Price point. If you are interested in buying something, feel free to reach out to me. I live in Marina Del Rey and my office is in Beverly Hills. The best way to reach me is either via e-mail at or call me on my mobile 310.486.1002 for a free consultation.
Look forward to your response. Warm regards, Enre

The address appears to be 740 Superba Ave in Venice. It looks like the owner refinanced in 2007 and is having trouble making their payments, and thus the notice of default is showing.

Venice is a unique town with very distinct neighborhoods. This home sits on busy through street, with a major bus line whose route runs along the stretch on Venice Way where the home is located. There are 2 public grade schools that you would be eligible for depending on where you live.

I was born and raised in Venice and have been practicing real estate here for close to a decade. I am happy to discuss the good, bad and ugly that Venice has to offer as well any additional details of this or any Venice home that you are interested in.

If you want to live in Venice, CA. Get ready for fun... The most popular tourist attraction in the world is Venice Beach. Abbot Kinney is one of the local hang-outs with many fine restaurants and shops. Venice has turned into a very artsy neighborhood with many Multi-million dollar homes and architectural homes as well.

You would need a Realtor to help find you the right home at the right price.
