A local Real Estate agent can help you with that, but there are not many land contracts out there. In order for a seller to be able to do a land contract the home has to be paid off, which isn't common. Unless you have a long time home owner, and in that case, they most likely just want to get their cash out and be done with the home.

I would talk to some mortgage lenders and see what if anything is preventing you from buying, they can help you get your credit/financial situation in order and let you know what you need to do to get in a buying position.

Good Morning Darlene,

If a home on Trulia says "This home has completed the foreclosure process...." It means the sheriffs sale has taken place but the homeowner still has a minimum of a 6 month redemption period before the bank takes it back. There will usually not be photos, address and listing info available for these properties. If a home has gone beyond the redemption period and is bank owned it's up to the listing agent to get photos and details which alot of them don't.

I hope this helps!

Hi Darlene,

Ron is on target but one other possibility is that these transaction "for one reason or another" didn't work out, causing the property to land back on the market.

Sales contingencies for financing or inspections can be common causes for these difficulties. This is the main reason why banks prefer and will in some instances accept a lower cash offer opposed to a financed one.

Yes they will, unless there are multiple offers which in this market is common place & then it is highest and best. Short sales commonly accept lower offers in this market as well and sometimes have multiple offers. The owner will look at the offers and should only accept one offer which is forwarded to the bank for further consideration. Best Regards. ... more

That is an excellent question, one I have pondered. In my area, a short sale is quite a rarity and yet I still see this. I think the sellers are just in a defeated mode and no longer try to salvage anything, neither equity they may still have nor credit. ... more

Hello Heather,

I am assuming you want to search for the Legal Description of your property in Sturgis (ST. Joseph County).

Click on this link and fill in the information and it should give you the Legal Description. If that doesn't work just call (269) 467-5500 and give someone the information they need and they will give you the full legal description.

Thanks and good luck!

Any local agent can help you with any information you may want/need--if looking at a RealtyTrac ad-- you could be looking at a lis pendens property--notice of default--some of those properties may not be for sale yet, and some may never be, if the default is satisfied by the owner--again, any local agent can help you, contact any realty office and inquire. ... more

Hi Joe-
Usually the asset company or agent servicing the listing will have something on the front door or a window. It may not stand out; but should be there. Most states require emergency contact information posted at the property. Laws vary state to state.... Try you can then select the state followed by selecting the city.

Good Luck to you!
