I've lived her for 15 years. The only thing I've heard about are theft of batteries from RVs. Bicycles when left out front. Other than that. Nothing.

My name is Sandy Brown; I am a broker with Western Properties of Southern Oregon and we specialize in properties in the Rogue Valley. In our area, probably the best resource is Craigs List, as most of the rentals available are listed there. I'd also recommend contacting some of the bigger rental management companies and letting them know what you are looking for, as well as some of the bigger real estate firms, such as John L. Scott or Windermere. Their agents may know of a home becoming available as a rental. You had contacted my firm on Facebook and asked about our website - the way Facebook is set up it did not allow me to respond to your inquiry. We are a small real estate company of 2 agents and so I maintain a Facebook page only. If I hear of any rental coming available I will let you know and I wish you the best of luck! Sandy ... more

There are many factors that determine the price of the home, that do have nothing to do with the square footage of the home; so price per square foot isn't always a fair way to compare homes. For instance, the size of the lot may be very different, two homes the same size - one home may be on a small lot, while another is on a large lot backed by a golf course. Also some homes have outbuildings or exterior amenities, such as pools, that add value, but don't increase the square footage of the house. A savvy realtor can help you do an apples to apples approximate analysis to determine how the prices compare on homes that you are looking at. The process is similar to how an appraiser determines value for your loan. ... more

OK I am not sure what your questions is. Are you looking for someone that handles Foreclosed properties or the companies that do the foreclosures for the banks?

Preforclosure means someone is trying to sale a home prior to the foreclosure taking place. Again - just like an auctioned property- check to see what other liens or liabilities there may be agains the property. ... more

It normally says in the paper what time the property will be up for auction. Depending on who is doing it could be any time during the day. Please check out the notice for auction. By the way - also make sure you know whether there are any other liens or not - just because the property is sold at auction, does not mean you wont be responsible for other liens or liabilities on that property! ... more

David Chiles answered:
Thank you for your question about whether or not the real estate market will take a double dip. Many people have forecast a double dip in the market due to current economic conditions. Therefore, Meredith Whitney is going with the status quo.

There is a third wave of foreclosure's set to hit the market. The third wave of foreclosure's is due to prolonged unemployment, while the first two waves were due to sub prime mortgages and a tightening of the credit market. Therefore, price declines may continue due to economic conditions rather than rich people losing their homes.

It really depends...

Although, I must say that I have not seen a lot of Banks spend lot's of money to improve bank owned homes.
They seem to do minimal repairs only so the home is financiable for buyers. If it's not, I have witnessed a bank tearing down a home that was not financiable and selling the land only.

I wish you the best of luck!

Kelly Gebler answered:
Hi - I list REOs and most of the time, my banks won't look at an offer until the listing is active in the MLS...sometimes they require the listing to be live for 4-7 days before they will look at offers. Once in awhile I get one where the bank will consider an offer while in the pre-marketing/prior to MLS stage. It just depends on the bank and their rules.

One of my fellow REO brokers in your area is Kim Knox - I would give her a call to see what she can find out for you. Her number is 541-899-7222. She may be able to get you a foot in the door prior to the listing going live in the MLS and get an offer on the table quickly so you can avoid competition from other potential buyers.

Best of luck!

Well the problem with this is that much of the time, the banks do not actually review offers within the first 5 days or so, giving them time to accumulate as many offers as possible, so they don't have to deal with low ball offers (which they simply do not respond to.)
Generally speaking there are three (yes 3) things that having the greatest impact on weather an offer is accepted.
1. Currency, both purchase price & earnest money
Offer what you think the property is legitatmetly worth, if you submitt "your best case scenario" generally speaking, the only response you'll get is seeing the house going pending, with someone elses offer. Have 2-3% earnest money shows you're serious also have your proof of funds to close.
2. Inspection period: If you know that you can get the inspection period down to 3 days, then make the inspection period as short as you can. Generally speaking you can get the inspection done with report in hand within 24 hrs. The bank sees this as your walking time, the longer the inspection period is the less likely you are to get an offer accepted.
3. Closing, the bank would love nothing more than to close in a week or two. If you're paying cash, this is all possible, due to the lack of needing all the back end loan work done. I would still suggest getting an appraisal as it will give you a lot of helpful information.

Time & Money, that's all the bank is interested in saving and making.

Sincerely your favorite Prudential agent, Jason Gomes
