Why would you think there is a scam on this rental? I have seen those scams on Craigs List, but never on Trulia. Thanks for the info!

I would not let me elaborate when I typed the question, so here are the details.
I'm looking into purchasing a foreclosure that is being sold by a trustee at a courthouse auction. I did some research on the property ( via ) RealtyTrac, and it seems like there were quite a few loans taken out on the property. From the records there appear to be 3 mortgages ( assuming 2 are refinances ) the last for 314k. Also, there appear to be 3 HELOCs on it. The last one in 2008 for 64k. Can't tell for sure but It appears that the foreclosure was initiated by the 64k load which seems kinda strange. I know this scenario is not for the faint of heart, but I want to do my due diligence to figure out if this is a possibility.

Let's say I do a title search, and the title comes up clear without leans. Now let's say that I go to the auction and bid on the property, and my bid is accepted. Am I in the clear once I pay the cash? or is there still the possibility of getting screwed. From what I understand, everything is subordinate to the primary mortgage or loan, any proceeds go to that, and if there are no additional funds left, the money goes toward those loans. Also from what I've read the HELOC loans are actually still on the individual even after foreclosure. So other than the possible condition of the structure, and the potential difficulties with owner occupation, are there any hidden pitfalls? if there are no current leans on the property, is there any way that I would owe additional money after foreclosure ?

Agree with John. Do everything you can to avoid a foreclosure. Hire a good listing agent to help you if you haven't already done so.

If you need assistance for the down payment and closing costs, then you are not qualified to buy anything. You need to either get a 2nd job, work more hours and save more money. Try cutting some expenses - take your lunch to work, make coffee at home, stop eating at restaurants, no vacations, no gift giving, etc.

In about a year, you will be able to buy a home. Which is more important to you?
