I was the first to respond to your question and have now retreived some additional information on the property for you. Having grown up in Fallbrook and an agent with Remax there for nearly 12 years I know the market and the local agents very well. I called the listing agent (Janice) who had the property listed nearly a year. She said the bank is very uncooperative regarding a short sale on the property and at this point the property is going to auction. The auction process does not allow interested parties to know the actual date/time of the auction and even when the property comes up on the list, there's a good chance it may be postponed to another day/time. The only way to buy at an auction is to stand at the courthouse steps each day and wait for the announcement that the property is going to be auctioned at that moment. It's not a very freindly process and therefore why more people don't buy auctioned homes. I hope you find this information useful and if you'd still like to find a home in Fallbrook, please call me. I'd be happy to assist you.
