There is no price because this home is NOT for sale. You need to know that websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. pay 3rd party vendors to copy information from public records at county buildings across the U.S. The listing does NOT say it's for sale. Scroll down and you will see Trulia just lists the facts that was given to them from Westchester County.

At this point, the home may be for sale in the future but there is no guarantee it will. Then again, the owner may end up paying all the late bills and continue to own the home.

If you are looking to buy a foreclosure or a home, you need to work with a local realtor in southern Westchester. Are you pre approved by a lender or will you be a cash buyer? Realtors in Westchester will ask to see a pre approval or proof of funds before showing you any homes.

Prudent for you to consult an attorney.
You have very specific needs and questions, which are legal in nature.

Good luck.

No - you are not liable to the lender - but the lender probably has the right to foreclose per the mortgage note and or deed of trust.

Whomever DID sign on the mortgage will have the financial responsibility for repayment and the credit issues if they don't. Your ownership stake in the property generally will be overridden by the rights of the lender. ... more

Short Sales are definately a very specialized field. They are NOT part of the Realtor basic training. Care must be used in selecting a New York Short Sale Specialist to guide you through the process and get the job done. It is usally a very wise decision to stay away from the investor type unless the property is very cheap (under 100K). Sellers should NEVER sign a "$10 option contract" as well, as they voilate quiet a few things ethically. ... more

I was a member of the sales team for the Vista at Fleetwood. The development has since been put on hold. We have not been notified of future plans for the project. If you would like me to keep you posted about future developments for this project, please send me an email with your contact info.

you need to check with your realtor what he meant by "went inot foreclosure", whether the house got sold in auction or the lender started the process of foreclosure. If it's sold then you are late, need to look for another property and if its not sold and your offer is good offer then the listing agent can submit your offer to the lender and stop or postpone the auction so that the lender can work on your offer. So, check with your agent the status of foreclosure process.
