Here is a link to the Lee County Property Assessor website and the record for that property:… Per the property record, that home is still privately owned and has not yet been foreclosed by the lender.

Dear Mr. Walsh,
Unfortunely, when the property was listed it was listed as a short-sale but the listing was terminated because it was probably sold at the auction or bank foreclosed until the bank listed we would not know when it would be listed but, I can keep you posted.

Hi Chris, Sounds like you need to have a realtor working for you to find you available properties. This property is in transition and will be for a while. However, if you are willing to wait for it you may be interested in a short sale or similar foreclosure in the area. No telling the length of time you can wait for this property to end up with a realtor. The banks will not share that information with anyone (that includes you or a realtor). It is better for you to work through a reputable realtor and use a good up to date website of active listings instead of spinning your wheels. My web access for you is: Please see the property below to give you an idea of a great home that is ready to go. Happy to help you when you are ready.

So you find out who has the mortgage.

YOU call them - and guess what - they will not talk to you, and if they do, you are both wasting time.

They don't own the home and guess what, they can't sell it to you, just because they don't own it.

Go figure.

Home has to go through the foreclosure process, and when the bank owns it, they still won't talk to you.

The bank will hire a Realtor, who will list it, THEN you can get your own Realtor then you can start.

This could be 36 months away, maybe less.
