Your post says that you are looking for real estate listings. You should check out this site: It is a leading website database that contains over two million foreclosure homes, including bank foreclosures, government foreclosures like VA homes and HUD homes, distressed properties and commercial properties that are for sale all across the nation.

All of the listings have had any outstanding liens eliminated and the title is free and clear. We also update our extensive collection of listings every day. Membership opens up the listing and reveals the contact information and a detailed property description including more photos.

Once a listing hits 3rd party sites like Trulia, most are already sold or have multiple offers. Nothing beats a local buyer broker who is WELL experienced in selling REO homes who can identify new listings and get you in as soon as they hit the market. ... more

It really depends what's in the contract! Usually there is an inspection period....If you removed the contingencies, then you are legally obligated to close the deal....did you have a Realtor you can ask? ... more

Price, terms and contingencies really matter these days to sellers. Seller doesn't always pick the highest offer but aim to select an offer that is the best

Best option is to interview a few companies and then decide one that offers the most competitive pricing and best service.

If it's RealtyTrac, what it means is that it's a phony number. Not real. Made up. Never was, and never will be.

Robert Spinosa answered:

If your loan has not been approved, BofA must provide you with the denial letter that will show you the reasons for the denial. If these items can be addressed or revisited, you should do that in the interest of keeping the deal intact. Sometimes, mistakes are made or things overlooked, and a conversation with your loan officer may get to the bottom of it.

If the loan was denied due to the property/appraisal, you will need this information if you wish to continue with the seller.

As with all things in life, before correcting the problem, you must know what it is.

Let me know if I can help at any time --- either with additional perspective or with a new loan setup.

You know more than you think,
