Contact an experienced Realtor who is familiar with what to look for and what to ask when purchasing bank owned properties as they are typically on "As Is" contracts. Is your agent experienced in making offers on HUD homes? Does your agent know the difference between a Bank Owned foreclosure and an HOA foreclosure. These are critical questions to ask ahead of time. It is always in your best interest, in my opinion, to have your own agent represent you in a buyer transaction.
I have extensive experience in this area. If you have other questions, please feel free to contact me directly at 407.730.3959 or visit us at the website below.
