I bought a HUD forecloser last summer. It sat for 3 years before being offered up for sale. There was no rhyme or reason for it to take that long.

It's a 1099C, not 1095, and the lender sends it to you (or may not). It is not something you can just get online or something. It is much to your benefit if they elect not to send you one as that is possibly tens of thousands of extra income to you and will bump you to a much higher tax bracket paying more in taxes.

There are renovation refinance options out there...I don't know if that is a possibility for you or not. You could also sell it and let the new owner use a renovation loan to make all the repairs if you feel it won't pass inspection. You should weigh all of your options before foreclosure...I have seen people handcuffed by foreclosures for years and I always advise to look at every angle first.

Please let me know if I can help. I have been doing renovation financing for 24 years and if we can make it work or I can help you with an alternative I would be happy to help.

Best of luck to you,

Your best bet is to contact a local Realtor. If you're looking at a foreclosure listing here on Trulia, you should make sure it says "FOR SALE". There are a lot of fake listings that say "Foreclosure" or "Pre-Foreclosure" and they aren't necessarily for sale. Any and ALL foreclosures will be listed with a REALTOR and will appear in your local MLS.

Before you contact an agent, make sure you're pre-approved, or have proof of funds if you're paying cash.

One issue I have not seen discussed is the Ordermills...there has been mention of a few SGP being the worst of the worst in the industry...
This is not A easy industry to break into as you need about 35,000 in equipment, another $200 or so per employee for training and education programs you will need for the services you are going to agree to perform with a Back Charge clause that allows for back charging two years down the road. In addition you will need about 3-4k for insurance, contracts for hazardous material disposal, another 1-2k for supplies...air fresheners...locks...pad supplies, Personal Protection Equipment for your employees...
After you do all this then you'll be able to perform many of the services illegally that are demanded of you....

I developed a Business 101 package for this specifically for this industry. The package includes videos and spread sheets specifically designed to help the New Entrepreneur get started in the industry.
I also publish a watch list about companies that commit fraud and theft .

If you'd like a clearer picture of the Property Preservation Industry go to or

That is where you'll find the Rest of the Story.....
