Dan Tabit answered:
These homes listed as "pre-foreclosure" are generally not on the market and are not for sale. Realist sells subscriptions, not homes. A pre-foreclosure can be someone who is just 30 days or more behind on their mortgage. Most of these get resolved without foreclosure.
If you are looking for a good deal on your next home, consider all that are on the market. Some bank owned homes may be fine, others are terrible. Some private party homes may be great deals just waiting to be discovered.
Get a great local agent, tell them what you want to find, get pre-approved through a strong local lender and start comparing what's out there. Best of luck.

Joan Congilose answered:
First of all you can not do a short sale on a rental or investment property , it has to be your primary residence & you have to be able to prove financial hardship. Before you consider that route, you might want to call your homeowners insurance company & tell them that a water problem caused mold in your basement. If it is from a leak, you may be covered. If it is not covered get a few other estimates to correct the problem. If you can't afford to do the work you might want to consider selling the house as is & offer a credit for the estimated repair at closing. Always discuss your options with your realtor & attorney before making a decision. ... more

If the properties are owned "fee simple", and have separate tax IDs and separate deeds, then I don't know of any reason why you couldn't/ What was in the agreement you had when you bought the property? That should have all of the answers. ... more

William Leigh Holt answered:
Wayne: While it's much too soon to tell what impact any of the stimulus/budget actions will have, I imagine that sooner or later we will have fewer houses selling in the upper ranges as a percentage of homes sold. One has only to go back to 1980 when the really posh new homes were selling for $100,00 to $125,000. You can go through development after development of what we called IBMer's, (4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath colonials, that were sold to those high flyers of the era, the IBM executive/salesperson.) Only the very senior management and top docs got to build bigger and usually on a single lot with a small custom builder. Will the absence of cathedral ceiling "family" rooms and crossover bridges from master suite to family bedroom corridor really mean the end of civilization as we know it? Perhaps we'll just have to sell more town homes and semi- detached places, even if new construction.

If there is going to be downward pressure because of scaled back incomes, perhaps, as businessmen, we should encourage sellers in the upper ranges to cash in while the bottom is still not in sight, if only we can find one speculator willing to buy left in the country.

Anyway, what we were doing has gotten us to where we are now. As Einstein was reputed to have said, repeating the same action and expecting different results is idiocy. (or words to that effect.)

Here’s another thought about how family incomes might actually rise, from the fellow who went to Darfur with George Clooney and Ann Curry.
