I'd be happy to assist you! FYI -- all foreclosures will be listed in the MLS with a Realtor. The ones you see listed on this site aren't necessarily for sale, and may not even be a real foreclosure.

I can do a quick search of all foreclosures in the area you're interested in. Keep in mind, the foreclosure market has dried up for the most part, although you can still find them occasionally.

FSBOs are sometimes listed in the MLS with a limited service agent, or you can find them on Zillow or even Craigslist. But be careful about working with FSBOs. They aren't necessarily well informed about their home's value (usually very unrealistic), and they don't know what contracts or disclosures are required. Most FSBOs are open to working with Buyer's who have a Realtor working for them as a Buyer's Agent.

I'd be happy to help you in your home search!

It does not look to be available. I would suggest you call me and I would be glad to find you the property that would meet your needs. In today's market, you need nan agent who can be on top of it and let you know when the properties become available. The good ones don't last long at all. Pam Fancy 970-581-5042

Foreclosure reality check.... Seasoned investors who buy foreclosures know the REO manager at the bank and get "off market" deals. They never have to bid or find a place to learn what's available.

FOR ALL OTHERS: The only "sellers market" in america is the foreclosure market. Don't expect any deals from a foreclosure as the bidding process brings 20-30 people to bid on almost every deal. A deal that was already priced at market.

It's easier to get a deal by going to a realtor, asking them to find the oldest property on the market and start dropping discounted offers. In addition, you won't have to wait 30-60 days to hear an answer.

Jail doesn't come with a bankruptcy or forclosure. Consider 1031 trade or some other mechanism to relieve the cash flow issue. Call me and I may have some creative ideas to alleviate the problem. Just need more info. I do Equity Marketing which is quite a bit different than ordinary real estate. I am at 970-566-9814 every day. ... more
