It depends on the date of recordation of the Liens as to how they are prioritized. Sounds like there's quite a line and could be pretty messy AND could take a lot of time to sort out. Hope you have lots of patience. ... more

Very rarely do we see foreclosures in Hackberry. I do see one currently on Clearspring. The ones that I have seen needed cash to close as they had significant foundation problems and would likely not finance with conventional financing.

Here is a link of what's currently for sale in Hackberry, including the foreclosure.,CONDO,MULTI,LAND,FARM,COM,VAC/listingtype/Resale+New,Foreclosure+Bank+Owned,Short+Sale/

Let me know if you would like to see it or any of the other ho

I would also recommend getting an inspection done, even though the bank probably won't negotiate afterwords. For a few hundred dollars you at least know what you're getting into, versus having a big surprise later. ... more

That property is not on the market. It foreclosed in February, but it's foreclosing lender has not offered it for sale yet. Don't let that $80K figure you are seeing fool you - the price will not be anywhere close to $80K when the bank finally gets around to selling it. It will be sold at market value less any repairs it needs - and market value on that home is not $80K. the lowest priced 3 bedroom single family home on the market in Valley Ranch today is priced at $159.9K. If you would like to be set up with a drip list that will alert you when it does come on the market, don't hesitate to get in touch by clicking on my profile. ... more

Bruce Lynn answered:
Yes... bid appropriately.
They don't always know if they are occupied or not. Sometimes it is hard to tell.
Could be the past owners, could be renters.
You would have to evict, if there is someone in the property.
If it was the past owner, probably not hard to do.
If it is a tenant, there could be a lease in place.
Often their prices are too good to be true. If you are thinking about the one on Tioga, that could be the case. If I remember correctly one of my clients bid over the asking price, but they rejected the offer.

Often you cannot get inside to see the home. So no inspection, no observations, etc. So difficult to know the condition. You might get a great deal, then again you might get one that is missing everything. You just never know.

Bruce Lynn answered:
The banks want market value for the house.
I don't know the particular house, but it could be the one on Cedar Valley in Valley Ranch.
If so, I don't think 200K will even get you a counter. It will probably sell a lot closer to the $300K price.

You never know though. It doesn't hurt to make an offer. Maybe they won't respond, maybe they will. At least you will know you have tried.

Cash or financing really doesn't matter on these if they are in good condition. The net to the seller is the same. Most of the banks I have worked with don't actually like cash offers as only about 50% of them or less close. Large earnest money is what talks, proving you are serious about going through with the transaction.

If you want to take a look at the house or make an offer just give me a call.

There are several other foreclosures in Irving that are available as well.

Typically with low ball offers it's better to bid on ones that have been on the market a while or are in really bad shape.

Bruce Lynn answered:

Don't get too excited about this one. The price is wrong in Realty Trac. It's probably a second lien, not a first and may never come on the market. Prices in La Villita for single family homes will be about 3x this amount or more. There are a couple of foreclosure townhomes about $200,000.

Let me know if you're interested. When the addresses are not published, they're likely not on the market and might not ever be on the market.

Unfortunately, Texas is a non-disclosure state, which prevents Realtors from publishing individual sales data such that anybody can see it. Average data and any other aggregate data that does not expose individual sale prices publicly is allowed.

You can, however, get pertinent information on a surrounding neighborhood at this handy little site. No one will call you unless ask.

I would agree with Pat. Condos and townhomes have taken a harder hit than single family.

Hello Elenor,

Almost all REO property is in the MLS. You will be best served by getting in touch with a local Realtor who can search for those home specifically for you. I would recommend that you do not limit yourself. While you can get a great deal on an REO home you can also get a great deal on a lot of properties in this market. So don't limit yourself. Banks sell REO's for as close to market value as possible but there are plenty of motivated sellers with homes priced competitively that will be of comparable value to anything in the REO market.

Good luck with your search.

You reposess the property, list like an automobile. (If the home includes the land it's sitting on, and the land was included in the sale, then, yes, you'd foreclose.)

Only 3 payments since 2006? Yes, it's far past time to act.

Good luck.
