You will be fine, congrats that you did sell your home though first.

Don't let a foreclosure stop you from buying a new home. See Comstock if you have a buyer in need.

I would check with a real estate lawyer.
It sounds like the homeowner has lost the home either to the city or the bank.
A lawyer will be able to tell you and to advise you as to whether you should continue to pay rent or not.
IF you need a name and number give me a call.

Wow, "approval" since August. What a mess! As if foreclosure wasn't hard enough, lenders have to drag their feet and torture home owners even more.

If you cannot get them to postpone the auction, I would advise your buyer to attend the auction if they want the home. As long as their purchase price is going to cover the loan amount (or maybe a little more) then they will just be competing with the bank (which they are doing right now anyway).

Another option is that if the property is sold at auction. The State of Michigan allows a 6 month redemption period. So what you do it get the money from your buyer (needs to cover the redemption costs), payoff the amount owing and then transfer the deed to the Buyer.

Good luck!

There isn't a 'normal' process. Each bankruptcy case is handled differently. Yet, typically, if the court appointed trustee approves a request for sale, then the banks often will go along with that. However, the bank's decision also will depend upon their bottom-line at that point. ... more

Hi Netman,

The bank that owns the particular foreclosure home that you are interested in is asking for assurance that the buyer from whom they accept an offer is actually going to be able to go through with the purchase. You are probably more familiar with the "pre-qualification" letter. This is very easy to come by and simply states that if everything you have disclosed to your lender is true, then you will be qualified to purchase the home. You then proceed through a more lengthy process-- after the offer is accepted -- (3-4 weeks) in which all of your documentation is submitted (in a physical format) to your lender at the end of which you get a "clear to close" (final lending approval) from your lender.

Since the banks now own more homes than they know what to do with, since it costs them money/time to hold these properties, and since they, too, have stockholders to answer to, they are evolving towards a business model that will allow them to proceed with greater confidence towards their desired end result – a closing!

The length of time that this type of "commitment" takes is a proper question for a lender to answer (since lending requirements, too are evolving). I am happy to provide you with a few references if you would like. Please contact me via my Trulia profile if you are interested.

Please keep in mind that whether you go after this particular bank-owned home or not, it is prudent to properly qualified yourself now so that you will be prepared to move on a property when the time is right!

I agree with Andy in that there are other alternatives than walking way. I never, ever advise anyone to walk away. For legal (and I feel ethical, also) reasons, you should explore every alternative.

There is a fair amount about short sales on my website at Feel free to visit at your convenience, and I would appreciate the opportunity of speaking with you further about your situation.

Thank you, Pete, and I hope to hear from you.

Yes, prices in Cherry Hill Village and throughout the southeastern Michigan area are continuing to fluctuate. I would recommend that you continue to monitor the market for a few more months and would be happy to set up a direct MLS search that comes to your email daily to accomplish that task. This is a very unique community that has a lot of attraction for many buyers but, in my opinion, was initially overpriced. As a result, there is a lot of opportunity to snag a good deal. A local Realtor can update you on recent sales (comps) to help ensure you get the best deal and don't overpay. I'd be happy to help if you've not chosen someone. If not, good luck with whomever you choose. As a 16 year resident of Canton, you're sure to enjoy living here! ... more
