You have many options at that price point, in fact investors are buying them for 50-70 cents on the dollar from the banks. As well as having the market well stocked with almost too many short sales, but it is a great time to buy because buyers are in control. Depending on your financial situation and the amount of money you have to put down on a home that could depend on if a short sale is in your best interest. Meaning the longer a bank response is to a offer on the short sale could rates rising? May I suggest if you want to put little down that you look into programs such as Nehemiah they could really be of a great help. Any further questions feel free to or contact me directly at Renee Straubinger, Keller Williams of Jupiter. We are the Palm Beach Garden, Jupiter and Tequesta Specialists because we not only work here we live here. Depending on the Realtor that as well could make or break a deal with a short sale, make sure you ask how many short sales have they done, how many short sales they have closed, and what is their rate of return, also ask on the short sales have they represented more buyers or sellers, those answers can make all the difference, with you on the buyers side .

Whether you are looking for a foreclosure or short sale, you can find a great deal on homes that are at an arm length transaction and close on time and receive a property that has no hidden defects

Andrea: It's hard to tell from your question if you're looking for a foreclosure property only....or a three-bedroom house around $300K---or, both. I see that you're in Texas, and I understand that some areas near Dallas (I'm thinking of Flower Mound, specifically) are still holding their own pricewise. What is your plan as far as Florida is concerned? My toll-free number is 800-741-4848, and after 5 p.m. (Florida time) my extension is 307. Nancy

Mr Chang,
If I were you I would look for a Relocation Real Estate Professional that can reseach the market in the area of you are interested in based on your budget and other needs such as good schools, close to beaches e.t. Latest Polls show that Palm Beach County is sitting on about 4 years of Real Estate Inventory, so you should not find it hard to locate something that fits your budget and your needs.

THere are plenty of deals out the is a buyers Market

We should see more foreclosures during the last quarter of this year. It is definitely possible to buy a newer 3 bedroom in the $300K range. Our market is still in a decline and there are some great buys. Our market is saturated with short sales that are constantly bringing down our prices. A lot depends on your time frame. I would be happy to provide you with a way to search our MLS and receive updates daily. This is a great way to start your search.
