This data is provided to us from Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Please be advised that I have created a ticket to Zillow Consumer Care to request the removal of the foreclosure status from your property at (2006 Wrightsboro Rd. Augusta, GA). Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Typically a seller would choose a listing agent that is experienced with selling homes that need work. They can price it as is. Inform you how selling as is works. Search for buyers looking for as is homes. Now, selling to investors may be easy and quicker, but you will net less. Selling to an owner occupant can net more, but even if sold as is, they still may ask for something. This is where the experience f the listing agent comes in to get the message across before seeing the home, that the house is as is. ... more

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

We do have some programs for people with bad credit.

You can get an FHA loan with credit as low as 580.

Even if your scores are below that we have a credit score simulator that shows how to raise your scores quickly which I can help with.

If you have any questions or would like help with this you are welcome to get in touch with me.

That is silly of that seller. It is average for a conventional loan to close in 30-37 days. Nowt sue why yours is so long. If finding another bank is not an option. Your offer should simply have a 60 day close in your offer. No need to ask ahead , just put it in your offer. You should have known that before making an offer to this GA home seller and if you did not and the contract states 30, you are stuck. Perhaps reality of withdrawing your offer within your mortgage contingency will shock some patience into that seller. Your buyer agent should be guiding you ... more

This market is saturated with cash buyers. Buyers using mortgages to purchase their homes are facing harder and harder challenges when competitive offers are from cash buyers. So you could have offered several thousands more than the next lowest bid and may still not have won.

What's the big deal? Most borrower's offers include "ifs," or more formerly, contingencies. They'll buy the property if it appraises, if there are no issues with the home inspection, if the borrower can get financing. Cash buyers typically don't have all of those contingencies, so their offers are far more attractive. And they can often close in two weeks.

Most of us agents are not allowed to share whether we think an action is illegal since we are licensed only to practice real estate. But if you are using mortgage financing to buy the VA foreclosure, this may explain what is going on.
