Darrell D. Drouillard answered:
Most of the on-line websites that consumers like yourself utilize will provide some form of estimate. These estimates are usually automated algorithms based on the market data available. Since homes are being bought and sold daily, these may automatically fluctuate. That being said, these automated estimates are not always accurate because they do not take into account variables that can be adjusted when home values are done by a real person. A real estate agent can give you a better idea of value based on location, amenities, comparables, etc.

And, if you buy, an appraiser will do an in depth assessment that is very detailed and will not utilize the automated algorithms that many sites utilize. When you see a real appraisal and how intricate it is, it is easy to see how the on-line estimates may not be as accurate.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Hello Kay,

A foreclosure notice should have identifying info on it.

Basic things like:

The name of the lender
Contact info
Account number

If these items are absent it could be a scam.

Banks have their OWN foreclosure departments. The notice should come from them not some lawyer

Best of luck to you!

Kawain Payne, Realtor

Josh Greenwald answered:
Hi there, what you will probably find if you look at the local foreclosure statistics closely is that Providence only has a slightly higher than average foreclosure rate, approximately 1 in 1000 housing units, whereas the national average is 1 in 700 housing units. The reason it may seem to a casual observer that the foreclosure rates are higher locally in Providence is merely because, compared to the rest of the state, Providence has the highest population density and thus the largest number of actual housing units from which there could be foreclosures, but taken as an average it's not exorbitantly high. In fact, the highest foreclosure rates recently have been occurring in the southeastern, western, and north-midwestern areas of the country.
