Usually after the inspection the buyer can ask for seller to fix any issues. But the big question is how was this worded? If you were really vague in the request (i.e. seller to service furnace), then you may have an issue. I've learned over the years you need to be very specific when asking for inspection items, and make sure buyer and seller are all on the same page. If it were me, I would have said something like, " seller to have furnace cleaned, service and inspected by licensed HVAC contractor, and repair or replace as necessary". What does your REALTOR say?? ... more

Assuming your credit scores are within the required range for getting the lowest rates available, I think there is a very good chance you can achieve your stated goals of getting a newer house at a better rate.

Aside from credit scores, other variables include the age, location, size, and level of interior finishes and architectural features you'd like to have. There are brand new homes that have never been lived in that you may qualify for.

If you have some examples of communities you're interested, or are open to, I'd be happy to provide you with some listing information to give you an idea of what some of your options might include. If you're interested, please contact me at the number or email address below

Best of luck to you!

Most agents that have experience working with investors have references to prove it. I'd suggest asking for references to see just how investor friendly they really are.

Congratulations...well, sort of. You will need to pay the HOA lien to get clear title on the home. Although I am not an attorney, I have purchased HOA liens to give me redemption rights. Without making it complicated, you owe the money or they can redeem. In Colorado, an HOA lien with a late fee becomes a super lien. Yes, it is legal. Buying a home at the Foreclosure auction seems very simple but Jr. Liens can redeem, including an HOA. It is kind of like a game of checkers and the HOA is king in this case, to jump him you'll need to pay. Hope this helps. Visit for a list of Short sales and foreclosures in Northern Colorado.

I think there is a pretty strong special taxing/metro district if you are price sensative check with the county or have your agent send you the information. I had a client who "almost" relocated from California and they were going to buy a house over there on Killarney- they loved the size and lot location. From what Sean says below yes Holiday went out of bussiness and it is an eye sore over there. There is also some other communities surrounding this area that I would advocate, such as Copperleaf and Sterling Hills, there is also Murphy Creek on the other side of C-470 and then down by Southlands Mall, there are some newer and new home sites as well. Many choices really- it will just depend on what you fall in love with when you get here :)

IF you are interested in foreclosures in this area make sure you visit my website-

Thanks and best of luck on your home search!

I'd really like to know why someone gave Karin a thumbs down? The auction and redemption period may show up the same or different than a completed foreclosure on a person's credit report. The goal would be to make it advantageous for the seller such as a little cash in their pocket or less damage to their credit. As suggested, get an attorney and your original Realtor an hit it from all angles, sellers, bank, now & later.
Good luck, Ruth
