Aside from satisfying your own curiosity, the information has no benefit to you. Banks do not have the capacity (from an employment perspective) to speak with every person who wants information about a house that may, or may not, be going into foreclosure. Your best bet is to team up with an agent, who will watch the address and let you know when it becomes available for sale. ... more

We've been successful in tracking down the asset management company and even the agent that will eventually list it before it's even hit the market with a little bit of effort. I would definitely call a good and aggressive realtor in your area that'l willing to do some of that footwork on your behalf. ... more

You may want to look at doing an FHA 203k loan program to buy the home, it allows you to finance all the costs to repair the home and even put in any appliances or upgrades you want.

Hello Mish,
As a Realtor that primarily works as a Listing Agent for Banks, I may not be a Lawyer, but I know Real Estate and my Clients that happen to be Banks would not be very happy if I did not. It is crucial for me to know the Laws that affect what my clients lists and sells. The Foreclosure Arena is drastically Changing, specially since the passage of S.896 / also know as The Protecting Tenants At Foreclosure. It is extremely important that as a Realtor listing Foreclosures that I quickly and accurately document all the information specially when there is a Tenant Involved. If the tenants Have A Signed Lease Agreement signed & available, Put Up A Security Deposit, have documented with a Current Active Agreement to Show, Proof and Give a Copy to the Realtor who is assigned to Check The Occupancy that would be the Best Case. But even if you don't you still have rights. Mish you can research the Law terminalogy and Rules. Some can define their rights by reading them but if you have ANY Questions or Doubt about what Your Rights Are, or if you are Not Sure, Consultant a Foreclosure Attorneys Office, I think you will be very surprised how many Rights You Have. But, I DO NOT Recommend Not Paying Your Rent. Two Wrongs don't Make a Right. Plus,depending on Your State Laws, If your Landlord did not tell you when you signed the lease that Foreclosure was a possibility, You might just be another one in your Favor. Anyone Faced With This Problem Please "Read Your Leases Agreement Careful". ... more
