Hi Larry,

As others have already indicated, Trulia doesn't accept FSBO listing submissions at this time. If however you choose to work with either a flat fee or full service agent or broker at any time in the future, he or she can submit your listing to us with a for sale status, via the link below.

Best Wishes,

Yes, let the homeowner know you are interested BUT first talk to a Realtor. Depending on which bank is the lein holder, you can have a fairly fast short sale... IF the homeowner is in agreement and cooperates to short sale the home. Do you know who is the lein holder? However, sometimes it can take several months or even years. Seriously! Whether the house sales as-is or not, is up to all parties involved. But, most usually in this type of situation, yes, it would be.

Call me at (405) 625-1576 or email at

Is that home still available? I did not find it at

If you are looking to finance it, you'd want to contact a mortgage lender (or several) to go over what options you would have. With HUD homes you can purchase using the FHA loan program and not need to get an appraisal, or you can use other types of financing but then an appraisal is needed (not that it's a big deal, and it helps protect you from buying an overpriced home as well). FHA has a $100 down payment program when you purchase a HUD owned home, but I do not believe it is offered in Oklahoma at this time. Also with HUD homes often there could be repairs that are needed, and FHA has a special feature where those repairs can be financed into the loan amount into what is called a "repair escrow"... however it would be more difficult to do a repair escrow with conventional financing.

Since you have excellent credit, you are debt free, then it just should come down if your employment qualifies, income is sufficient for the home's price, as well as if you have the required down payment.

There are no dumb questions, just answers.
Look at the other homes for sale. If priced too low like many foreclosures they create a bidding war and can sell way above asking.
When you see a steal, buy it. Why be greedy and take a chance of losing it?
I am an exclusive buyers agent and deal with buyers haviing mind sets like yours all the time. After they lose their dream home for a few thousand dollars, I have to console them.
in my market we have a client portal which I send homes with pictures, maps and all details that meet their financial potential and dreams. This educates me as to their likes and dislikes. They are now prepared to know a good deal when they see it.
Exception; If you are looking at a fixerupper. Know what you are doing or walk. Then you are in a position to bargain.

Than Maynard answered:
There is absolutely no way to answer that question without more information. A local Realtor can provide you a free market analysis if you are looking to sell or even if you are just trying to figure out your homes value.
If you are looking to buy in that area, you can hirer a buyer's broker to help you determine the value.
Or you can hire an appraiser to get the value if you are trying not to involve one of those "mean, dishonest, greedy" real estate sales people.
