I would suggest using the "Find an Agent" tab and searching for a Real Estate Agent in your area. I am a mortgage specialist in Macomb County, I would be happy to take a quick application to see if you could purchase a home. There are programs available that will lend to borrowers with a credit score as low as 500. If you are interested please give me a call, worst case I can give you suggestions on how to boost your credit.

Thank you again!

Update your comps. Did you take your appraisal with you last year? Presumably it shows a lower value. Some people hire appraisers to help with a more current appraisal. Your Realtor might help you with newer comps too. ... more

John this home is not for sale it is simply public information from realty trac lists on their site. It states "This property is a Notice of Foreclosure Sale". The seller/owner has several options they could redeem it back from the bank by paying past payments, they could sell it via a short sale or could actually stay in the home up to 6 months and ride out their redemption.

Also, the state of Michigan has some new guidelines the banks need to follow with regard to foreclosure which could help the seller/owner stay in the home through loan modification.

It is best in this market to find one real estate agent that can assist you. Right now we are seeing multiple offers on most homes and many are selling over asking price within a couple days of hitting the market. We have provided a link to search what is active and it includes short sales and foreclosures.

The difference in value of properties w/ or w/o a basement may have some fluctuation based upon the volume of buyers in the market and inventory levels.

In a tight inventory with many buyers, those buyers may compromise on their list of "wants" and the differential between home w/ and w/o basements may carry an average figure as supported by recent comp sales. Contrast to a cycle with strong inventory and fewer buyers, you are looking to capture the attention of a single buyer who might prefer a basement. In order to swing the pendelum to your favor, the discounted price, or savings the buyer gains has to be a strong enough incentive. Refer to recent comps to evaluate current data with the help of a local Realtor.

There will always be buyers who have basements on a list of must haves.
