Hello Ktella. Unfortunately, RealtyTrac does not update these listings very often. They require you to register for a 'free trial' to see all of the pertinent info. They have a monthly fee to continue service.
The property on College is a bank owned home (4108 S. College Ave - MLS #4165759). It was listed on 4/30/09 for $264,900. It is now pending at $244,900; not $104,000. The $104k is the amount that it was foreclosed upon (what was owed on the loan). From looking at the tax records, it appears that it was purchased at the trustee sale by an investor, who then in turn is putting it back on the market at a higher price. This is not uncommon in properties where there is some equity, but it is rare in this down market.
The one on Ventura is not currently listed for sale; I couldn't even find the exact address. According to the limited info on RealtyTrac, it was foreclosed on in June, and the amount owed was $40,000, if that's accurate.
I searched for Daley Park and any homes on that street (Ventura) that are currently listed or pending that match the criteria listed here, and nothing came up. It looks as though it hasn't been relisted yet by the bank.
If you'd like a custom search of foreclosure listings I would be glad to help. I deal with a LOT of banks on the pre-foreclosure (short sale) and foreclosure (REO) sides for both buyers and sellers. I can help you structure an offer that will increase the chances of getting accepted by the bank. My office is in Tempe at Warner and Kyrene, so I'm familiar with the Tempe market as well.
Feel free to contact me via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call my cell at: 480.231.6769.
Send me your search criteria: (max. price, min. sq/ft, min. bed/bath, pool yes or no, garage yes or no, specific area of town, etc) and I can send you some listings that are active and available, and you can look through them at your leisure. If you like some of them, just send me the MLS #'s and I'll research them further.
One item of importance: make sure you're prequalified to purchase. The banks won't even consider your offer without an LSR, which is the form that your lender will give you once you've been pre-qualified. OR, if you are a cash buyer, you would need proof of funds, like a bank statement. This would show the seller (bank) that you're a serious buyer who won't waste their time.
I look forward to hearing from you.
