Good Evening!! Bank owned (foreclosure) properties are purchased just like any other home. You should work with a buyers agent and they can send you lists of available properties that meet your criteria.

Good Luck,

Its more insulting to ask a realtor to show you a house if you are not ready to buy!

Do you go to the Mall with out money?? no you dont!

If and when you are ready buy, have your homework complete....get your pre - approval letter ready, then go shopping, otherwise

you are wasting other people time

Are you kidding?

3-4 bedrooms and 2 baths for under $700/month?

Did you want a jacuzzi tub, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and an in-ground swimming pool too?


Think about this one...about $200/mo in taxes leaves less than $500/month for the lease-purchase. For that amount, you MIGHT be able to rent a trailer up by Bannister.

you cannot get a mortgage loan with a score of 500. you should improve your credit score... For FHA loan min. score required is 620 and for conventional loans you need min. credit score above 650.

You can go to the web site below and check for any complaints.
Your research should have included the fact that a Realtor could have worked for you as a buyer's agent and it would not cost you anything, but the agent is paid out of the seller's commission. Your question, hopefully shows others why that is important.
Hope this isn’t too late, sorry I didn’t see your post until today.
