900K is a ton of money for a house anywhere in Missouri. Higher price-points like that are simply harder to sell here because the buyer pool (particularly outside of KC and STL) is so much smaller than for less expensive housing. It honestly doesn't seem unreasonable to me that a house priced at that level hasn't sold in or near Cape even after two years.

What you want here is a good buyer's agent to help you talk through the strategy behind your offer. IMO, a 3% reduction over the course of of 2 years tells you that the owner is probably pretty inflexible about what they're willing to accept. If you're thinking of low-balling, really talk it over with your agent about how that might be received by the other party.

Liz Lockhart answered:
If you have a local agent, contact that agent for help BEFORE you make an offer via the web. Unless you reference your agent, you will not be represented in the transaction. The auction company will represent the seller on both sides of the transaction (representing the seller's best interests and only filling out forms for you). I know that part may be confusing, but trust me. You should consider getting a local agent.

Often, the local listing agent will be referenced in the auction listing. Your agent can call that person for more information about the transaction.

Simon Campbell answered:
There are different ways to buy a foreclosed home.

If it is listed with a real estate agent: Then you will need to submit all offers through that agent.

If the home is foreclosed on but not listed: Then you only option is to see if it is listed for sale on their website. If not, then you will need to wait until the lender decides to list the home. In most cases, you cannot go through the bank directly but must use a real estate agent.

If your are bidding on a HUD home: You will still need to go through a HUD approved agent.

If you are bidding on an auction: You can do this on your own. Just make sure you do your research and know what you are getting into. Auction homes can be tricky and come with lots of hidden problems.
