Well known?....Speaking from both a consumer side and from the side of a home inspector that sees and hears the interactions of many real estate agents my advice is "well known" is not what is really important. There are some well-known agents that don't do their clients a good and honest job, of representing them and some rookie agents that do a great job. I have bought over 15 foreclosed homes from many different agents and the most important thing to look for is an honest, hard working agent that will represent you and your interests. Contact me and I will go into more detail but for example, make sure they pull comps for you no matter what the price of the foreclosure is. You will never know if that price is in the ball park for what has actually sold recently unless you look at what comparable houses in the area have sold for. I have been on an inspection recently and the offer on the house was over $20,000 more than a similar house just 3 houses away. So be careful. Also even more important get a home inspection! I'm not asking you to use me but get a home inspection by someone good that knows foreclosure homes really well. There are some questions you should ask when buying a forclosed home. They have some very unique problems that many inspectors don't even know about or look for. I mean structural problems, serious stuff. So be careful about that as well. If you would like more information you can visit my web site or call (612) 701-9672. The help is free. I do this for people all the time. I would rather you buy a house wisely that get ripped off.
