It all depends on if the bank process has been complete and the home is on the market for sale. Then you have to see the house to make a determination on its condition, if it looks like it wont need too much work, then it would be a normal process. Howeve, it the house is in need of lots of repairs, then it get complicated because it would mean you would have to qualify for a 203k loan to make the home babitable, other wise your lender would not approve a loan on a home that needs lots of work without ther 203k loan. Those loans are not easy to do and lots of lender don't like to do them.
I can give you more details in person if you call me, its' too much to talk about the process over email
Please call me
Thanks for inquiring
