Probably not. Most of the homes listed as Foreclosures are not currently for sale and when they are, the price will not be what you saw here. RealtyTrac sells subscriptions, not homes. You can get foreclosure information from a great local agent, as well as real homes you can buy. Best of luck. ... more

It has been an interesting year in Real Estate up in Alaska. We started off the year with low inventory to now having a few months of inventory to chose from. The market will be a lot more competitive during the summer months as that is when most people like to move. It will all depend on your time frame and location of property. Let me know if you would like more information about a certain area as I would be happy to help. :) ... more

Not even close. The economy up here has remained good due to high oil prices. The job market is fine so far also. That being said, it's 20 degrees out right now, we're losing 5 minutes of daylight every day and we're not even into the depressing part of the winter yet! You have to be pretty tough to live up here... ... more

Foreclosure auctions happen on the court house steps (in the Lobby) and the property is put up for highest and best bid for cash. Normally at or above what is owed on the note plus any late charges and attorney fees.
As a renter your agreement may have language in the lease in regards to the possiblity of foreclosures.
In most notes their is a clause that all rents and monies received from rents are to be deposited to the financial instituion holding the note. However it is never addresses the renter in the regard to foreclosures.
I would read my lease agreement then seek legal advice if I thought it was needed and also I would start looking for a new place to live.
You could also call the property management office and see if they are in touch with the lender and have worked out a deal with the lender in regards to the tenants.

Lucinda. At this point, institutions won't allow occupancy prior to purchase. Even in the late 80s when there were foreclosures were plentiful, institutions did not allow rentals. One cannot predict if governmental agencies will change regulations in the future. ... more

Has a home inspection been done? Have repairs been agreed upon? How long did you extend? Has the appraisal been ordered? Has the appraisal been done. If you have reached ANY dates in your contract and the item hasn't been completed due negligence on the listing agent or the seller, thisCOULD be the case.There's a whole slough of possibilities.
