Deborah Sciarrino answered:
I think the bank is fishing at 224K, the strategy is to find out if you are bidding against anyone else and if so put in your top dollar and be willing to walk away. If you are the only bidder then go for making the lower offer and hope they take it or take the time to counter, you will probably walk away with a house and a great deal.

Good luck!

Definitely you can... make sure your working with your agent and they know what your plans are, but if the inspection failed and the owners aren't willing to fix the issues or give you credit then you are free to walk away as that is a deal breaker. ... more

As Klaus indicated, if you're getting your information from the tax records, I would contact the County Assessor's office & relay your problem to them. They can guide you through the proper procedures to get the information changed. You may have to provide documentation & the whole process may take awhile. Good luck!

Bill Wilmering answered:
Your Realtor should be able to help you determine what the market value is for the home. Then you can determine what the home is worth to you. Once you determine that, you will know what to offer for the home. If the other party offers higher, then although you didn't get the house, you will know that you didn't overpay for it. Then it's on to the next one, because there are plenty of homes on the market and the right one is out there for you.

Anna M Brocco answered:
Really depends on your finances, can you purchase without selling, can you carry two mortgages and other costs if needed--consider visiting with any qualified loan officer to determine loan qualification; as for buying the short sale--to consider, short sales are by no means fast sales unless already pre-approved by the lender, therefore if you sell your property first will you have a place to live indefinitely, etc. ... more

Dale Weir answered:
If you are not currently working with a Realtor and you would like me to sit down with you and go over how a lease purchase is different from a regular sale, I would be happy to do that. There are a lot of things that are "glossed over" in the media and on line that have to be considered to protect you when you put your home on the market in this way. ... more

Todd McGregor answered:
A first assumable loan is a loan that is in first position and is assumable. This means that an incoming buyer can "assume" the position on title to the property without obtaining a new loan. This can be very advantageous in times when interest rates are high and the loan on a prospective property has a lower interest rate. This strategy can also be used by buyers with credit that could prevent them from obtaining a new loan for a purchase. ... more

Keith Carroll answered:
Make sure to ask about any and all tax implications, Make sure that when you negotiate your short sale that you have your settlement structured to release you from any current or future obligation to pay the shortfall created by the by the sale. Also have a lawyer review your agreement it will be money well spent..

Good luck...
