No advise from anyone need to stop you. Listen to your gut and your valet. Working for yourself has its advantages . You have no one to blame. OOPS only yourself
Some people are meant to go into business for themselves. While others should think twice.
I would think even harder to have a partner..

I would be happy to assist. It would also be much easier if I knew some specifics you are looking for... What is your budget? Also, do you prefer a house or condo/apartment. Bed and bath count. Yard. Kids, pets. That would be enough to get started with... if you havent found an agent to work with yet, I am happy to assist.

David Solomon answered:
Every auction is different. The best thing to do is to pull a complete property report and speak to a title rep who will give you all the information regarding leins and so on. Usually, your Real Estate Agent handles this so you and will accompany you to the auction to make sure you get a good deal. We've done this several times in the past. Feel free to contact the Solomon Team at (310) 979-3798 (Luxury Real Estate Boutique) ... more

It's all about what you intend. For sure the buyer would likely then be the richest person on the planet considering our values.

Owner's names are not public information. Furthermore, counties charge a fee for making information available, so in addition to the legal issues, there would be a large cost factor that would add no practical value. ... more

Ted Canto answered:
Grant, not knocking it but I was at the auction block and I can tell you that it is ran by a very well connected few and it takes a serious in-the-know to get what you want. However, it isn't impossible but it really isn't worth the hassle, it is worth the $2-3K that bidders charge. I have investor clients that get it after a few failed attempts and then trying bidders.. Experienced investors know better than to try and do it themselves. That is a fact. However, are there a few of them doing it on their own? Absolutely. Are they well connected? That would be an open ended discussion. ... more

Annual Property Taxes and other info about LA county:

I can't give u any tax advise, but suggestion:

Property taxes in CA (most of 88 cities: LA or BH) for the first year are !basically! 1% of your purchase price, plus any additional local assessments, bonds, etc.
<<<1.25% is a good rule of thumb.>>>
Keep in mind, your assessed value that the taxes are based on might increase by no more than 2% each year, which might increase your taxes slightly( yes, I refer to Prop.13)

Best wishes,

Jonathan Bagg,  in Saint Augustine, FL

Jonathan Bagg answered:
I've had this same situation going with buyers I'm working with in Florida. I assisted the buyers in making an offer to the trustee in bankruptcy while the bankruptcy estate was still open, as I believe your case to be. In each instance, the trustee elected to complete the bankruptcy and allow th foreclosure to resume.

After the discharge in bankruptcy, the lienholder will then resume the foreclosure proceedings. The owner of the real estate is still the owner and all requests for sale prior to the actual foreclosure must be made by the owner to the lienholder. If the owner will not assist in forwarding offers to lienholders, buyers will need to wait until the foreclosure auction as their next opportunity to acquire the property is my understanding.

If a sale date is approved by the Court having jurisdiction and there are no successful bidders at auction, the property will be acquired by the lienholder and sold at a later date.

Good luck,
