From what I understand, as of this year banks are not going to approve short sales until further notice. Going this route will most likely lead you to a dead end. Now if the home has been foreclosed already that's another story because the bank already has the property in its possession. However, you may not have to purchase a distressed property. $1M may be enough for you to purchase what your looking for without having to go through any red tape. Contact me for more details.

Hello Amy,

Buying a home today has changed. I remember when I bought my first house 13 hers ago I need to first find a Realtor before I could begin my MLS search. Today, you can do it yourself using Truila or any other website that offer MLS search. I found a Realtor in Menlo Park who understands the industry is in the beginnings of a huge shift in purchasing or selling a home in the bay area. In fact, he gives back money that is unique in real estate.

I found them at http://www.menloathertonrealty.com

Hope that helps you to find and buy your next home.

Hi Amy, I would be glad to help you. I've bought/sold over 1,000 homes in San Mateo County and Santa Clara County. Many times my first time home buyers have changed what they are looking for as they learn more about the current real estate market. Pick an experienced agent and you will learn quickly. You can see pictures of many of the homes I've bought/sold at http://julianalee.com . You would probably find my buyer seminar helpful http://julianalee.com/buyer-seminar.htm ...
