There are multiple sources: 1. contact a Realtor because many homes that are bank owned are listed by Realtors in the multiple listing service. 2. Access the major bank's foreclosure or REO (Real Estate Owned/Bank Owned) divisions. They are often listed there. The large majority of foreclosed properties are by FannieMae and typically are listed in the multi-list. ... more

I would suggest hiring a local Realtor who is familiar with buying and selling homes in your area and can help you through the entire process. Selling a home is a full time job. Why not hire a professional who can market and sell your home, and get you the greatest return on your investment. If you are interested in talking more about this, please contact me at (412) 526-9144. ... more

Hi Pam,

Sounds like you are doing a whole lot of research and still not getting the answer you are looking for. How bout this, you know your going to have to apply for loan when you get a home, so just apply now. This way you'll know if you are approved and how much you're approved for. Then just tell your agent you want to find a home that meets your criteria now.

You'd be surprised how soon you could be actually sitting in your new living room. If you need help getting the ball rolling let me know I'd be happy to help.

Well, that's a tough one! There are rehab loans available through the URA (and perhaps HUD as well), Sometimes they have to be in specially zoned areas as well. Presumably you bought it either with cash or an unsecured loan: before you got sick, when your credit was still good. (It's hard to finance properties needing total rehab with conventional loans.)

I would call (or stop in) to the URA: HUD is Their rehab loans are described under Hopefully they can help you. Some of them only apply to city properties, so if you're in Mt. Oliver you couldn't use those.

Good luck!
