Well, this question can be best answered by a VA loan specialist and that would be undoubtedly one of the professional who has years of experience in this domain.

I'd recommend reaching out to a Realtor in your area directly. They will be able to get you a list of foreclosures in your area.

Good luck!

Yes there should be such a disclosure.

But Banks won't know.

This is why you have a Natural Hazards Report

The things no one ever tells you. Anyone can buy a house. How much you have to spends limits your options. I work with Banks, Short Sales, Foreclosures. I have seen them take offers for perfectly good liveable properties just to get them off the books. I have also seen them hold out until it has to be torn down.

If you do not make an offer, you will never know. Find a Realtor in your area that will work for You, a CASH Buyer.

You may not find exactly what you are looking for. Be prepared to spend your monthly "payment" on the repairs.

You also may be surprised as to what you could Qualify for through an FHA or USDA Loan.

Good Luck!!

There are local banks in my area that still offer bridge loans. If larger lenders don't offer them, check with smaller banks or credit unions in your area.

Hi- Ask the sellers. They have been receiving notices all along. Ask them for paperwork. Call the attorney listed for the lender, (ask the secretary or paralegal) or check the county sheriffs list to see if its listed for sale. Its a lot easier to do a purchase from them using the short sale process than it is to wait until after a foreclosure sale. You need to read some books n this too .

Something to think about. I own a home in CA and one in TX. The difference is I know my home in CA will appreciate way more than the one in TX. It depends on why you want to buy a home. If you're looking for the cheapest home, obviously AL is your better bet. If you're looking to buy a home that potentially will be a better investment, then CA is the way to go.

Best of Luck!

Here's the story. Filing BK may absolve you of the debt, but as long as you are on title you still own the home therefore the only way for the bank to cure the title would be to foreclose. In addition, It has become so common for someone to files Chapter 7 BK and think once the BK is discharged the waiting period to buy another home starts. WRONG! That waiting period will not begin until you either do a Deed in Lieu or the bank eventually forecloses on the property and I've seen that process take as much as 3 years or more in states like CA.

Best of Luck!
