If you are financing, your lender will require an appraisal. If you are paying by cash, it is your option.

Bruce is right. All real estate matters should be clearly spelled out in writing. Your best bet would be to consult an attorney about your particular situation. Real estate agents are not attorneys, therefore we cannot practice law.

It sounds like you should qualify for an FHA loan at the going rate, assuming everything checks out OK. I would be happy to speak with you to offer a free, no-obligation pre-approval.

We could go over your options and find the best loan program for your needs.

Best regards,

Michael Byrne

Citibank does not sell its own properties, they hire assett management companies to sell their properties. By looking on their website, they do list on their who has been assigned the property.

If it is not on there, check the house for when they post a notice with a contact for is selling the property, then contact them. While you are waiting make sure you have been prequailified as you will need a prequailification letter to even make an offer.

for mor etips on buying bank owned properties please check my blog.

Besides your fico score you have to make sure your debt ratios are in order, total back ratio not to exceed 50% at teh most. 41% is the recommended FHA tolerance, but can be overridden by automated underwriter findings. ... more
