I do BPO and CMA reports for AltiSource with mixed results. Their solicitation process is old technology (the phone) not the "grab it" board most companies use. They ask you to bid on a job and you sometimes don't hear back for days. Their software forms are pretty good when they work. But I just had a really bad experience with a CMA with a full interior inspection and photos...too much work for the money and then they had a technology problem and lost all my data. I refused to do it over. Talking with India can be a problem when something goes wrong. I did one inspection where the lockbox had been busted off and the property was open. I called the property preservation contractor that had posted a notice on the window and they said "OH, we haven't serviced that property for months. They went with somebody else.

AltiSource is part of the servicing giant Ocwan, which is attracting so much scrutiny, particularly from the NY Atty. Gen. They take over these huge servicing portfolios and then subcontract all the work out to India. Also, they just cut their CMA and BPO fees another $5. I would rather do a BPO for a company that has a third party client they have to satisfy and keep happy. AltiSource is trying to do everything in-house.

This question is better posted in Port Gibson and not Frisco. You are better off asking a local realtor there. Rent to own can be very risky but every state has different rules and regulations.

Good luck,

Lori Stanford answered:
This is a bank owned property that is not available yet. It could be prelisted, in litigation, who knows. Bank took possession of it November of last year so there is definitely something going on with the title or bank taking possession that is keeping it from being ready to be on the market. I list homes for BOA and a couple of others and very rarely does the bank take longer than a few weeks from taking possession to approval for listing unless there is a problem of some sort. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
Consider contacting any local realty office and ask about that particular street and currently available properties...since you posted this question under foreclosures--if looking at RealtyTrac ads, keep in mind that the information may not always be accurate and oftentimes can be misleading--you could be looking at a lis pendens property--notice of default--or some other kind of fee, some of those properties may not be for sale yet, and some may never be, if the default is satisfied by the owner. If you are interested in foreclosures, work with an agent--he/she will have access to reliable information. ... more

Steven Babcock answered:
The home at 7752 Silverbrook is not available. It is owned by the Secretary of Veteran Affairs. (a VA foreclosure) It was owned by Kimberly Gibson and foreclosed on 12/1/2009. Citi mortgage took over the home and the VA, with it's guarantee took over the home on 12/7/2009. It has been in limbo ever since.
It's hard to say why it is not on the market and the only the owner ( Veteran Affairs) can answer that question.
Give me a call if you have anymore questions. And remember, their are plenty of other foreclosures out there and this is a great time to buy.

I would hire a Realtor to help you with this. It doesn't cost you anything. A buyer's agent commission is typically paid by the seller (or in this case, the bank). Ask your friends, family or coworkers for the name of a good Realtor. Or, I'd be happy to refer you to a Coldwell Banker agent in your area.

When you see homes listed with no house number it typically means they are very very early in the process and in fact may never go to foreclosure.

You will probably have better luck looking for the ones with complete addresses. ... more

"TIS THE SEASON" Homeowners have been waiting all year for the season to sell their homes. Now it's the time........................, It has been a couple of years that Sellers, have held off selling their home because of the economy and now every day there seems to be more and more confidence building in our country with respect to Real Estate. Especially in our area, everything is starting to re-adjust. It is an exciting time in Frisco, we have such a "sought" after area that people hear about all over the country. You are in the right place, Frisco, and you are experiencing the Selling Season.

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
The home on Spicewood was not sold directly by the bank,. That is just not going to happen. The buyers saw it on a foreclosure list and had their Realtor keep an eye on it on when it hit the market. It was on the MLS for 24 hours, when they submitted an offer.

I work extensively with cash investors and many of them try to buy the homes directly from the bank. We have not been successful yet. We do buy a lot of homes at auctions though. I'll be happy to help you if you haven't committed to an agent yet.

Many of our home buyers like Grayhawk, the area is further north in Frisco

If you are interested in purchasing need think personal / professional lifestyle. Frisco has lot of Frisco due to new construction 100% no down payment loans, families could not sale home based on mortgage amounts, and value of home.

Mark Chovan answered:
There has been quite a bit of controversy regarding the Frisco Square Town homes. There are allot of new development plans for the immediate area, parks, hotels etc...
Some Realtors think this will eventually be a hot spot like the Addison Square. You will most likely see county appraisals much higher than the actual sale in the last 2-years. The ones I viewed were very nice inside.
You can visit my web site and look under neighborhoods, and check out the Frisco web-site.
