Please read the following:
A foreclosed property purchasing process is somewhat different then a
traditional retail purchase. The process is as follows:

• The offer is submitted
• If there are multiple offers then there may or maynot be a highest
and best so do not expect it. Make sure your buyers is aware of that
potential situation. If there is a highest and best then the response
is due within 24 hours.
• The bank makes a selection or could counter, if they choose. If
they make a selection then the next step occurs otherwise the counter
process will continue forward.
• If your buyer’s offer is selected an addendum or rider to the
contract is issued by the bank to be completed within 24 hours.
• The buyer then completes this document and turns it in with the
earnest deposit. The earnest deposit has to be in certified funds
addressed to •
The bank requires the completed contract, addendum, other documents
(lead base paint, etc) and certified funds to be in the Properties Trust Account office WITHIN 24 hours after offer has beenaccepted. If this is not completed within the allotted time the bank may go onto the next
• Once your offer and addendum have been turned in and the bank has
signed them then there is usually a 7 day period of time to do
inspections. Also, if the property has been winterized there is a fee
to de-winterize the property if your buyers want to conduct the
inspections with the utilities on. There is also a re-winterization
• Even if the buyer chooses to an inspection the house is SOLD “AS
IS”. Do not set any other expectations with the buyer.

As a reminder, the buyer is responsible for all CO's. The CO process
should begin immediately when the signed contract from the bank has
been received. If the CO process is held up because it was not begun
on time then the buyer will be held accountable for the per diem rate.

Also, if your buyer’s lawyer is not familiar with this foreclosure
process it might cause a delay which in turn you may lose the deal.

Please read this and make sure you prepare your buyer prior to them
potentially winning the bid. If a buyer delays the process and the
bank chooses to move forward with another offer then you will loose as
well. You are responsible for the MLS fee.

Thank you,

Smoke Rise is a great gated community. It is worth looking into. Lynda was right about where you might be located in the community. It can take 10 minutes just to get out into the real world.
From there, Rt 287 is a straight shot to the Tap. A good estimate: 45 minutes with no trafic, an hour when heading to work

I could list many options for you right now, but to know exactly what your best route that will work best for you would be looking at it in a glance. First go to mapquest put in your A to B route just to get a glance what your traveling route looks like. Then go to the port Authority website which I would google so you could find exactly what you are looking for. Even check out the closet train station to you whch you could also check out on mapquest and check out the differet routes and times. You could even print out the schudule. With all your research you should be able to find which route will work best for you. Feel free to contact me with anyother questions. Have a great day!
