Hi Felix,

The very first thing that you will need to do in order to qualify to purchase a Bank Owned property is to get qualified with a Lender. Once that is done you will be able to work with a Lender to make an offer to the bank in question.

I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, (this does not require us pulling your credit) that will allow you to make the best decision for your family. I can be contacted via my profile information for a no obligation consultation. My Office hours are 08:00 AM-08:00 PM Mon-Fri and Fri and Sat 08:00 AM-06:00 PM CST.

Thanks for your post & congratulations on your decisions to purchase a home. I would suggest you get APPROVED not just pre-qualified. Let me explain the difference. When you start shopping for a home, most Agents and Builders want you to get pre-qualified, before they spend any time with you. However, being pre-qualified doesn't mean you are ready to buy. In this market, property is moving faster than ever. So if you are ready to buy, you should get APPROVED by a competent Lender. Approval is similar to having cash in your pocket and this tells the seller you are truly ready to buy. In fact many listing Agents and Builder won’t even look at your offer unless its attached to a real Approval. I would welcome the opportunity to get you approved with 48 hours of application.

I am here to help you make the best decision for your family based on sound responsible, knowledgeable financial guidance. I can be reach at 501-717-0403 for further consultation with no obligation.

Hi Lilly there's not as many foreclosure homes as there were a few short years ago, the market here in San Mateo is very short of inventory as well. It may be easier to contact an agent here to find a home that is appropriate for you. A 3 bedroom home in San Mateo for 550K and under may be a challenge. Please do contact me directly, I have most of my sales in San Mateo and surrounding areas.

Best place to get the trust sale date is on Foreclosure You'll need a temp membership, but you'll be able to get the exact date from there. They'll also provide a phone number to those that will do the auctioning and you can get recorded updates by phone as it gets closer.

I found very interested Public Auction for Property in California, please review the web reference website i provide below this comment.

from 2006 and 2015 are the best time to buy a house or property. Of course you can easy find Deals at Trulia, but before you are buying a property make sure you search 10 times to make sure you are paying the market price.

Be very careful the Broker you will select, most of the time all brokers are NOT telling you the important things. In in most case he is the person how will make your process Good or Bed!

Good look find you dream property

Best Regard

If you are talking about the county auctions on the courthouse steps, you pay cash on the spot.

If you are referring to the auctions on the courthouse steps, then the answer is NO.

If you mean the public auctions for homes that no one has been able to sell any other way, then the answer is most likely yes. Bring a set of nose plugs … ... more
