Mr. Chappel,
Any valuation without an personal inspection is no better than what Trulia or Zillow offers, with isn't much good. Public data will reveal the age, size and basic room count and that isn't always accurate.
If you need to decide what it's worth to sell, it's time to talk to some local agents. Their values will range some too, depending on their strategies The market sets the value, based on a ready and willing buyer and seller.

As others have clearly noted, you can place yourself in a position to act should the existing buyer fail to complete the purchase.

I would caution parking the 'Fight For It' attitude where it can not be seen.
A seller and their agent will consider a PIA buyer the last thing they need in this stressful event. Back up #3, will appear more attractive.
-
Position yourself correctly for this home.
Have your agent plug you into the early look process. (If you are 'fighting' your REALTOR, you may not be allowed access)
Be decisive and get your offer in FIRST.

Best of success,

Hi Denise,

Yes you can purchase a home in Atlanta while living out of state. The home will have to be purchased as an investment property or 2nd home. The credit requirements are a little more strict when doing so. You may need a higher credit score and you may be required to present 10% to 20% down payment. I would suggest that you contact a mortgage lender and be specific about your plans. The more information that you are able to provide, the better off your chances of getting an approval. If you fail to disclose information, like the fact that you will be purchasing a home in another state, you could waste a lot of time only to be denied.

Hi Andre,

Oftentimes, the listing agent may not have the HOA information and thus does not include in the listing. This is especially true with foreclosures. However, a good listing agent will search for this information. And a good selling agent will also track down this information to provide to their buyer clients. So do not assume that because the HOA information is not include in the system, that there is no HOA in the community. Hope that helps.

Pre-approval letters are worthless- unless they come from the UNDERWRITER. A loan officer does not have the authority to approve a loan.

Robin;

You can check crime rates online and or you can contact the local police department. If you go to Google maps you can look up what is near the property you are interested in.

Have a great weekend.

Christina Hayes answered:
You should be asking your agent this question. He or she will tell you what would be a fair price to offer. Based on comparables. Always remember sellers can ask what ever they want for a property. It doesn't mean that is what they are going to get.

Have a great weekend.

You can ask your agent to ask the sellers. The sellers will need to fill out a property disclosure which has most of the information you seek within it.

Have a great weekend.
