You can use to find information like this see what has posted recently. I am assuming you have done your research and understand how the tax foreclosures work?

You can also, if you are looking to buy a home and want to go about it in an easier way but still get a good deal (they do still exist in the MLS) use the search link below, it has a specific section in it called Special listing conditions, check the boxes that are appropriate for what you want to find.
I hope this helps generally the tax sales are done once or twice per year but I forget which months, you can go to the court house and find out.

Well then...

You are looking to buy two homes or just the first one that gets accepted?

Either case, this question of how long it could take for a response is almost irrelevant, because there are so many different factors. After you have acceptance is when the real questions begin. At that time a buyer broker(a good one) will save you time and money. Will you get the same from dealing direct with a listing agent? That really depends on your level of experience, and the integrity of the listing agent.

You may want to consider just dealing with one Agent, focusing on your end goal.

Good Luck

Hi K,

Whether or not you had independent Realtor representation, the end result and answer may have been the same.

Although I'm jumping in here a little late, I would suggest calling the Realtors broker and arrange a meeting with the broker.

The other thing I wonder about is if we aren't getting the full story here.

I find it very unusual that you would not have been told that the bank wanted a certain figure to get that offer accepted.

That being said, buying a bank owned or short sale property has two sides. You "might" get a great price or you might be outbid by someone else and loose out, which is more common now with the demand for homes.

All in all, none of us here wish to post finger pointing replies to you for not using a buyers agent or to the Realtor who wrote your offer.

The purchase process is about communication and I would suggest that before getting too many opinions form people, Realtors or not, who did not take part in the process you experienced that you again arrange a meeting with the agents broker.

All The Best,
