You can ask for this, but I don't think the sellers would do it. You might be able to negotiate a different price if you point these things out though. If the wrong year was disclosed, then you will definitely have to look into this more. I hope everything got figured out. ... more

Slightly different for the buyer, than the seller. But typically in our market Mitchell, SD, the title costs are split 50/50 as well as the closing fee. Then each party has some different, smaller fees from there. We have two title companies in town that perform closings. ... more

Most often this is the case, though on rare occasions you can get the bank to make some repairs or renegotiate the deal. However anyone buying a foreclosure should assume that the bank means what they say when they list the property "AS-IS"

Additionally the time you have to inspect a home and decide if in fact it's something you want to buy is very limited, typically 10-14 days and this requires you to be ready to descend on the house with your inspectors the day the contract gets signed and this can be difficult as the sellers of these property lack both communication skills and common courtesy.

I've attached a link below to a much longer piece I've written about buying foreclosures and encourage you or anyone thinking of buying a foreclosure to read it first. As someone who has a lot of experience with foreclosure sales I assure you they are rarely the deal most buyers falsely believe them to be.

I wish you the best of luck.

No but your dad can. The loan would have to be in your dads name. You could possibly co sign. But overall your dads name. He would have to have eligibility left over also.

I do the VA foreclosures here locally. Eventually on a VA foreclosure they will have it where you can get a VA loan on their properties no matter who you are. They should have the process up and running in a couple of months. ... more
