As I can see you are moving from Madison. What would be your major motivation? It is a great school district.. Randolph would be a more rural area in some parts - you can see homes with septic and well which is perfectly fine if well taken care of. Prices definitely more affordable over there then Madison!
Feel free to reach out to me. I would share some info on my program for buyer closing costs coverage. I pay upto 2% of selling price from my commission to my buyers at closing. Maria 862-262-5869

a long painfull process of negotiating with seller, bank, local health department at the very least. Short sales are difficult enough. Unless you are an investor with knowledge, contacts and ability to address issues I would advise other wise. You could spend quite a bit of time and money only to not purchase. ... more

Thanks for your question about finding out more information on a possible foreclosure property. Call a few real estate agents who specialize in foreclosure and tell them the property address. A good agent should be able to get more information for you. RealtyTrac lists the same information that the courts do, however, they are more organized than most governments, so they may have more information. I recommend submitting a request for an agent to contact you from their website. ... more

Thank you for your question about a home that is in foreclosure. The best way to get more information is to contact a local agent.

The Foreclosure process starts when a homeowner cannot pay the mortgage and ends when the home is resold.

The three stages of Foreclosure are: Pre-Foreclosure, Auction, and REO/Bank Owned.

Pre-Foreclosure is the time period a homeowner has to repay the delinquent amount of the mortgage.

If a homeowner does not pay the mortgage the home is auctioned

If the bids do not meet the reserve the lien holder (bank) reclaims the property and it becomes a Bank Owned REO.

Victor Kaminski answered:
Rates can vary widely but when looking for the best rates and comparing two competitive lenders I don't think you'll see much difference between the two. Also take into consideration who is charging junk fees they don't need to be but can.

A good rule is to look at the two lenders and if one comes back to you again now promising a rate he couldn't give before because of a new program that miraculously appeared overnight, I'd say avoid that guy like the plague.

For the most part most mortgage reps are honest, just like realtors but at the same token don't let yourself be taken by the one that isn't as a sucker.
