From your profile I am assuming you are a buyer. If that is the case you could make an offer on the property to keep it from going to auction, but...

First you will have to locate the owner and contract with them. Keep in mind the owner may owe more than the home is worth. If that is the case the owner cannot convey clear title and needs to arrange to settle with the creditors first. You can't just buy it because he can't sell it.

Also keep in mind that many home that are in the foreclosure process are not in the best shape so that will affect the value. You do not want to over pay.

If the home is listed with an auction company, be aware of the fees associated with this type of purchase.

I highly recommend you retain a buyers agent to help you discover the facts about the house, help you determine a real value and help you with the contract so you don't buy a pig-in-a-poke.

It depends on the type of dishonesty truthfully. If it goes against the real estate code of ethics, then you can first voice your opinion with the broker. Most of the time, this will suffice but if you feel it is a serious issue, you can report to the board of realtors @ ... more

HI Ellen,

As a long term resident of the east valley, with a good chunk of time in Ahwatukee, I can tell you that it is a lovely community surrounded by mountain views, great parks and amenities, and very nice subdivisions. It has the great benefit of feeling like an "off the beaten track' hamlet, while being conveniently located approximately 7 miles from a major Phoenix artery that will get you to the downtown area in approximately 20 minutes. Additionally, it provides easy access to Sky Harbor Airport, Scottsdale, and even Prescott is an easy hour and 45 minute drive!

Mountain Point High is the other Tempe Union High School in Ahwatukee and is outstanding, as well. At this time, due to a bit lower enrollment, it is possible to send students to either school on a limited basis.

I would be honored to help anyone interested in a move to my main market and where we live in Ahwatukee!

Hire. An. Agent.

Without one, you become a bloody fish in a shark tank. There are tons of scams and con rentals out there, and only an agent can find you a home that is legitimate.

I have never seen an apartment community manager on the Trulia website because it's primarily for the consumer and real estate agents, lenders, property managers, appraisers, etc.

Your best bet is find the location you're interested in and contact them directly. ... more
