Once you are in foreclosure I do not know of any conventional banks that will lend to that borrower. A private money lender, or hard money lender, will lend based on the equity. I would recommend a local lender that is still doing high Loan to Values like ... more

You prob. should not have bid on an auction without being pre-approved. It will depend what type of auction and if it was contingent upon you getting a mortgage. Most auctions are as is with no contingencies, if so you would lose your deposit. You should read your contract to see ... more

I think you owe the taxes. In fact you probably won the bid because all the other bidders looked up the tax liability in advance.

Many times there is a title policy taken out on these things, if you had one, you may be able to get them to pay for it. ... more

If you don't pay HOA assessments, the homeowner's association can initiate foreclosure proceedings. An HOA foreclosure is similar to a foreclosure of your home by a mortgage lender. However, there are a few differences.

Franceakite answered:
I landed my first REO account via BPO work I'd performed. I focused on making sure i did accurate valuations and one day I received a call from an asset manager regarding a BPO I had just turned in.

He wanted to thank me for a job well done and told me about a pre-foreclosure program they had recently launched. Although I didn't land that particular listing I did take advantage of the contact opportunity and maintained it by checking in every couple weeks. I never asked for business but rather just offered my expertise with local trends and activity when needed. I must have wowed him as he eventually suggested I come on board as one of their Listing Agents and a few weeks later I had my first REO assignment.

Just like any other listing you have to get yourself out there, look for windows of opportunities, and be persistent in your pursuit of your goal.

For anyone that is interested -

Charles Jones VA Specialist answered:
,,:to Close" certainly means different things to different people. Buying a Foreclosure is a process, and can be lengthy. Closing, typically means once you are in contract and the offer has been accepted. That time can be quick for the all cash buyer, perhaps as fast as 2 weeks to close. As for the process, there are may factors which delay paperwork and stages, So not all Foreclosures are the same. Some are in or will be going to an auction. If the Bank does not sell it in auction it comes back to them and they somehow determine the price which may be far more than what you see. If it was a government loan such as a VA , FHA or a few others. Then the process can take even longer.
There are even different stages of Foreclosure where the previous owner can redeem theirselves and re-acquire the home. No doubt there can be advantages of purchasing a Foreclosed home. Equally so there can be pitfalls as the home in question typically is AS IS and many disclosures may not be there to protect you. You also have a huge chance of investors out bidding you as they do this for a living. Point is to answer your question," How Long" that simply depends!.. Find a realtor who deals who foreclosures, their commission should come from the bank side and a free service for you.
