This home is not for sale. You need to know that real estate websites like Zillow and Trulia obtain public information from counties across the U.S. Therefore judicial and foreclosures is public information. It does not mean the home is for sale. It can take years before the home is listed for sale. Currently this home is being held by a bank. ... more

If BOA is still in the process of valuation the short sale is not approved. Agent tend to advertise a short sale as approved after the have spoken to a processor and the processor has said: OK, great send me an offer. That is not the approval of the short sale!! When you are delivered a short sale approval letter from BOA that contains all of their terms and conditions including an expiration date for the approval, only then, the short sale is approved. Being as familiar as I am with BOA that can take a good number of months. ... more

I would assume a $29,900 home would need considerable more than "some fixing."

was your offer accepted??? how much did you indicate as a down payment? was your loan approved???

before you decided to make an offer you should have had an idea of what the closing cost would be. when it's time to close, you don't want to find yourself in a position where you don't have enough money.

Banks prefer cash offers, And they will often accept a lower cash offer over a higher offer that involves a mortgage. Do your homework. Work with an Realtor to determine what is a realistic estimate of the home's value after it's fixed up. Then I would reduce that amount by 10 to 15% to allow some room for error. Estimate the cost of repairs. Get real. Don't use low ball numbers.
Are you going to live in the home if your offer is accepted???? or are you looking to flip the property????? If you're going to flip the home, you need to factor a profit into your calculations.

Now you can determine your maximum offer. In most cases you probably want to your initial offer to be less that your max. But not always. Why?? Because sometimes you don't get a second chance to bump it up. Remember, your offer is competing against other offers. So while your waiting for a counter offer and hoping one of your incrementally increased offers will be accepted, ideally below your maximum, someone else's offer may be accepted.

You need to think about how strongly do you want the home.

Your agent will submit your offer for you. Usually in a few days, it varies, it could be more or less, the bank will accept, reject, or counter-offer.

Sometimes the bank will have the broker handling the foreclosure/REO notify all those who have submitted an offer that they (the bank) have received multiply offers. They ask all those who have submitted an offer to submit their highest and best offer which must be received by a designated date and time.

The bank will choose (but they are not obligated) the offer they consider best from their standpoint. For example they may choose $125,000 cash over a $140,000 offer which is comprised of $20,000 cash down payment and $120,000 mortgage.

Good evening BuyerFromNewYork,

I've been helping First Time Buyers for 23 years as a mortgage professional and I will tell you what I have always told my clients here in New York: If you are a First Time Buyer, steer clear of foreclosures and short sales.

Foreclosures are someone else's headache. The home probably has not been well-maintained and you're a First Time Buyer adjusting to paying a mortgage. Do you really want to walk in the door to someone else's deferred maintenance that YOU will have to pay for? Also, if you're thinking there are deals to be had in terms of lower prices, mostly those "deals" go to professional investors who can pay cash, negotiate hard with a Lender, and close fast.

For Short Sales, my attitude of late is that First Time Buyers should steer clear. Short Sales tend to be a better deal for the homeowner than for the Buyer. You'll wait MONTHS for the homeowner's Lender to approve the short sale; maybe as long as Six or Seven Months. Meanwhile, you're stuck in a contract to buy that home. I closed a short sale recently with a Buyer who, after seven months said this at the closing table, "I don't even want this house anymore."

And he didn't even get the "deal" on price he thought he was getting! The house appraised for only slightly more than he paid for it at the short sale price. He walked into this deal thinking he was buying a home for $100,000 less than it's value. In the end that wasn't the case.

There are plenty of motivated Sellers with their homes listed on your local MLS. Go find a good Local Mortgage Banker, get prequalified, then find a great, experienced Realtor, and buy the home you want at the price you're willing to pay.
