Contracts for deed are a horrible idea for the buyer. Wait until you can qualify for a traditional mortgage before you try to buy a home.

Unfortunately, you'll have to wait until it gets listed with a REALTOR. The foreclosure process can take a long time -- sometimes years. Even once the foreclosure process is complete, it could get sold at auction to an investor or another bank. You should contact a local Realtor and let them know what you're interested in and they can keep an eye out for it.

Good luck!

Sounds to me like either its overpriced, not marketed well, or has really bad pictures. Has your Realtor offered to host an Brokers Open or an Open House? You sound like you need feedback on the pricing of the home and a good way to get that is via a Brokers Open. How many homes have sold around you? What kind of competition do you have? What's the average sales price in your neighborhood? Are you receiving weekly reports on how many people are clicking your home on the internet & then CHOOSING not to call to see the property? There can be a lot of variables that can determine why you are not getting showings. ... more

Chances are this home won't be sold to anyone anytime soon. Bankruptcy all be ends any transfer of ownership as the court must approve this. If you want to pursue it further, contact the owners directly and ask if they want to sell. If you get a "yes" get an agent or attorney involved to prepare your paperwork, market analysis and then be prepared to wait for court approval. Chances are that the home may be "underwater" meaning the owner owes more than it's worth. Now you've added to your complexity multi-fold. Not only must you get the courts permission, you need to get the banks permission. This process can be 6 months to a year or more.
You may be better off finding another home.

I hope this helps....
Go to wherever you do your banking or a credit Union that you may do business with and explain exactly what you have in mind... They can set you on the right path... maybe the credit score is incorrect or maybe you have so work to do... But getting everything fixed up and moving forward will make you very happy and then you wont have to worry and get the place of your dreams... best of luck on your search ... more
