You can not just get by the listing agent. HOWEVER it is the law they submit every offer to the seller and let the seller answer it. The only "BUT" would be if the seller/the bank said NO offers under 224k. The thing you need to know is banks do not need to take low ball offers as there is a shortage of homes for sale.

Your agent has to insist on the offer being submitted and go to the agents managing broker if needed. ... more

Most realtors refuse to work with foreclosures and short sales because it involves extra time and paperwork and there is no additional pay for it. Foreclosures are priced cheaper because these homes need repairs, they may have possible liens which needs to be researched, etc. Realtors know that it takes less time to get a buyer to buy a regular resale home and they earn far more money for it.

I recommend you get a few opinions on that one. I am thinking you are interested in avoiding taxes and messy probate in the future, and I can only recommend you look at many options to see what is right for you. I am definitely not anyone with solid answers but I have personally made enough mistakes that I never should have. In one word, it all boils down to TRUST. I recommend you explore the option of using a Trust with assets. The benefits are many, and this is how wealthy stay wealthy.

I am suggesting beginning with 2 to 3 properties just to start with in getting our feet wet, for a 5 year time. I am not a big time investor nor look for one.
