RonS answered:
You don't "Give" a property to the bank. The borrower surrenders the property but that only means they aren't going to pay on it any longer. The trustee can abandon the property so that the bank can foreclose if they choose to do so.

I'm confident that unless there is a foreclosure on record, some entity owns it and will eventually come out of the woodwork. The lien will survive any chapter 7 regardless of whether it was surrendered or not. The liability for the debt is gone in the BK but again, the bank (Or other legal owner) will have to foreclosure to exercize their rights.

If the HOA foreclosed, they did so subject to the right of the senior lien holders, and junior lienholders for that matter. Their rights were not wiped out in the foreclosure by an HOA.

Cynthia Morris answered:
Ouch no one likes rejection. Without knowing the specifics on property, banks asking price, and the offer you made I cannot be specific. These foreclosures are so great for buyers and investors . Generally knowing the different banks, what the bank had in it, location,condition and real value your agent can help you make the right kind of offer. When the bank outright rejects your offer, it was either too low or they have decided to take the property to auction, which is another story in itself. Please let me know if you have further questions. ... more

Brian Rayl answered:
In the state of Texas, if you have a signed and executed contract and the earnest money has been received and receipted (doesn't matter if it was deposited, as long as you and/or your real estate agent have a signed receipt for it), then you are in the driver's seat. Yes, another contract can be accepted as a BACKUP contract, but yours will still be primary contract.

GENERALLY in Texas, if you have a signed and executed contract, YOU (the buyer) are the only one that can cancel the contract unless you default on some part of it. (I say generally because in the world of foreclosures, every bank has different addendums that you sign that may give the banks more power). The standard TREC real estate contract is very heavily weighted towards the buyer, which puts you in a good position.

Make sure you speak with your real estate agent, the title company on the contract, as well as a real estate attorney for more specific advice to your file or for legal advice.

The question would be: Who would be your clients or customers?

Qualifications would include a good quality digital camera capable of taking high resolution photos. Plus, of course, the skills and knowledge necessary to take good photos. ... more

Jackie Rankin answered:
I have dealt with banks (in this case the seller of the foreclosed homes) that have addendums that state that they will negotiate more than one offer at a time, and even if you accept their counter offer it does not necessarily mean that you have an accepted contract on the home. The addendums state that they have not officially accepted your offer until the contracts are officially signed by BOTH sides and during the time you are waiting for those signatures they can accept another offer that they were also negotiating. So nothing is official until you receive those signatures. Read your addendums, it is the source of all information. Good luck!

Rick Snow answered:
Trulia pulls listing information from many different sources and there is no set requirement for property information. Trulia is a great resource, but you may find it more convenient to contact a real estet professional who can search for properties that match your specific wants and needs. Your agent's information should be current and timely.

Good Luck with your search.

Margaret T. Hatcher answered:
Rick had the answer you wanted but any property worth anything the bank will buy back its self. You really do not want to be a buyer on super Tues unless you know what you are doing. You will not get a clear title. The bank can clear the title you can not.
The first Tues is true of any county in Texas.
