Work with a REALTOR and Title Company or Attorney who are experienced and the process will be smooth. Look for a CDPE REALTOR in your area. Go to cdpe.com

Hi Baldo - It is extremely important to deal with a realtor that has knowledge about the foreclosure process and one that has deep knowledge of the community you want to purchase in.

Seek your own personal representation....not the bank's listing agent. This way you can be sure your interests are being safeguarded not the banks.

If venturing into the condo market, be certain that the community you are venturing into is solid and not teetering on the brink of disaster. Be sure to request financial and budget records that will assist you with an accurate evaluation.

Good luck,

Definitely hire an attorney to help you. You need to make sure the title is clear and there are no outstanding liens on the property.

Baldo: Your lawyer will certainly guide you and if you obtain the services of a Realtor who knows the area you will have added protection regarding pricing in the area you are choosing to buy.

Clear Title with no liens, such as tax liens, mechanics liens, HOA liens need to be researched. That is the reason you will ask for a Title Report and Title Insurance policy from the Seller.

Good Luck and Happy Home Buying!
