If you want to continue with this buyer, prompt the buyer and decide after you get the response.

You can use Trulia and a Realtor. Some people do not feel their Realtor is showing them all the listings and it is just a feeling. We as Realtors often get calls from potential buyers and they ask about a property but it is sold or under contract. The issue is95that Trulia and the other companies get their data as a 3rd party.
I suggest you get a Realtor you can work with and have them set up an accurate search. You can browse Trulia or Z or R companies all you want but take it with a grain of salt.
Good luck to you

I don't know, Omar.. As someone who has lived in and around Duluth for coming on 25 years I'm going to go ahead and strongly suggest you stay in Cancun.

I'd gladly walk across the hot beach sand barefoot everyday if it meant never having to drive on Pleasant Hill Road again. Not to mention the people here aren't quite as attractive!

If you need more convincing give me a call, I feel confident I can talk you out of that decision :)

10,000 Baby Boomers are reaching 65 every day, Hank, and have been doing so since 1/1/2011 and will do so until 12/31/2030. There is no way, without a massive increase in taxes-Federal, State & Local-that the old "New Deal" and "Great Society" policies can survive. And with the ever increasing burdens of the new programs, one might foresee much weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth amongst our Boomer peers before we pass. BTW, this doesn't count the trillions of dollars of unfunded pension liabilities. Just saying... ... more

Veronika Barash answered:

These days it is very hard to win the bid on REO property. Banks are looking for no contingencies, preferably cash and full price offers.

I am sure your agent is doing everything possible for you to get the house. I suggest you either move on or wait another week to see what happens with this one.

Good luck!

Definitely get legal advise. Realtors are not attorneys and the best thing any of us can offer up to you is, "Seek legal counsel."

Katherine Morrison answered:
Great answer by Rodney! Also, Ginny is correct that another option is owner financing or a lease/purchase (although you will need a down payment).

However, each deal is different with individual sellers having different tolerances for buyers with financial challenges. There are several investors out there right now buying properties to give opportunities to people in circumstances like yours.

Get a good agent, talk to a good mortgage broker. This is not something that you need to do on your own.

Good luck!

I hope it's not too late to consider other options, to foreclosure, like a short-sale. The impact on your credit is not as severe if you do a short-sale, as oppose to a foreclosure. Feel free to call me, and I can advise you further.

Best regards,
