If it has been foreclosed it is owned by someone, often the bank. You bid on auctions, you make offers on homes for sale. If the bank owns it then you have a bank owned home and the bank will list it for sale just like any other house. You get a Realtor to get you in to see it and you make an offer. The bank that owns it will require that you speak with a lender and include a letter from the lender saying that you can get a loan to buy the house. Make an offer and see if the bank accepts it or not. it's that easy - ... more

You will probably qualify for quite a lot. The first answer to your question gives you the information you need to determine the exact amount of your buying power. Again, your present monthly debt payments
such as car payments, credit card bills and credit score will determine the amount you qualify for a home. I am a real estate agent with Long and Foster;and give my clients excellent service, We are a one stop company providing all the personnel to have a smooth buying experience. I have lived in Midlothian for many years so I know the area extensively. I would like to meet with you to discuss you real estate needs. What is important to you when selecting a home? The mortgage broker in my office is William Woodfin with Prosperity Mortgage and he will be glad to help you. His phone number is 804-513-7162. The email address is William.Woodfin@phmloans,com. I look forward to hearing from you.
Warmest regards,

Peggy Bouchard answered:
That's always the question post recession - can I sell my home for enough to pay it off and buy my next home - adding a long distance move only adds to the layers of complication for your scenario.

There are 2 ways you can go as a good first step - have several agents come in and give you a market analysis or hire an appraiser to appraise your home and give you an idea of what it will sell for - not a pie in the sky number, but tell the appraiser you want a realistic estimate on your home's value.

Hope that helps and that whichever way you go you find that there'smore than enough equite to allow you to make your move.

That's a tough question - I've read soe of the answeres from my colleagues and your repsonses.

If you are committed to selling your own homw without the use of an agent, then that's what you're going to do. I'd google everything you can find about it and try those things - if they work and you sell, then your goal's accomplished.

Agents, like any other professino can rock or be slimeballs - just a fact. If you try everything you kno wand your hoe doesn't sell, then I'd post on here that you're looking for an agent to help you sell your home - when they respond and they will, then check their reviews on Trulia, ask for references and again. google everything you can find about being a frist time home seller so nobody can take advantage of you.

Best of luck with getting your hoe sold

If homes are selling very quickly or if your home is decorated like Martha Stewart was there, then I'd try for a little bit without a stager - BUT - if there the home looks dated, sometimes staging can help make it look a little more with the time. ... more
