This listing was recently cancelled. I'f you have funds to purchase or are prequalified for a mortgage, you may be able to buy this, but I don't know for sure without researching the property.

I can't get a connection to the tax info right not, but the cancelled listing indicates it was a short sale. It's possible that there is a foreclosure involved (I cannot tell without access to the tax records), and if so it's possible you don't want to buy the house due to the distressed property law. Buying within 20 days of a foreclosure sale can subject you to unknown liability.

If you're looking for a bargain property, there are better places to look than short sales.
