Hi there, if you are looking for 5012 Hyada Blvd NE, it looks like it was foreclosed on and sold at auction already. I can help you buy property in Tacoma, or anywhere else in WA. If your specifically looking for foreclosures, or investment properties, I can find you the right property at the right price. Let me know, I'm in Puyallup, available to meet anytime. I routinely work with investors who make aggressive offers. ... more

I got involve with Federal Trustee Services back in 2010 where I was promised all types of remedy through legal remedy process administratively. Unfortunately I got nothing but a lot of paper work and worthless promises that did nothing but reduces my bank account of thousands of dollars. I spoke with
Allen once who held himself up as a righteous advocate of the people. However this was not the case. I would be very interested in recouping my money back from these people as they have just ripped me off.

Chances are you are looking at a foreclosure post from Realtytrac. Trulia does not publish any of the data on the site; they are fed data from various sources. Here in Washington it is mostly from individual agents or companies that submit our listings for buyer's to find.
RealtyTrac does not sell homes. They sell subscriptions to data which any licensed agent can provide you for free. Much of what they publish are foreclosure notices that never end up in foreclosure or enter the market.

re-negotiate with landlord
If you paid last month rent and deposit, ask if the last month rent can be applied toward this month rent and each month you live there, just pay the rent on the 1st. Most you will lose is your current rent.
If the current rent is cheap, then it worth to stay, else I will move if I were you

I have not seen any BECU judicial foreclosures. They may be doing them, but most Washington banks are using the Deed of Trust Act to foreclose nonjudicially.

Alain Picard answered:
The bank will eventually list your house with a real estate office to sell it as they are now the legal owners. If you will not leave willingly they will evict you and since you will probably have to be renting for a little while an eviction will not be good on your record. If an agent does come to your house with "Cash For Keys" you should probably take it because you will eventually have to leave. ... more

DON'T SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE OFFER!!! Handle it like a normal deal, in that the highest and best offer that will close should be sent to the bank. Then let the chips fall as they may. If you want to take back offers that is fine, incase the first one bails.

Banks need to have the facts of one deal and evaluate that. He you provide too many alternatives it complicates the transaction 10 fold.

Greg Fredericksen answered:
In Washington State you legally you have 20 days to vacate the residence after the foreclosure date. If however you are not out on the 20th day the eviction process could begin at that point which usually takes an additional 20 days. I do however agree with the other agents that you should try and short sale the home, because there is still a good chance that the bank may extend the auction date out and allow you an opportunity to sell the home for less than what is owed. ... more

blaison samuel answered:
Dugald gave good answer!! Rather than finding out whether anyone bought or not, it's always good to look for another rental before the foreclosure hits your credit. If anyone bought, then you will get very short notice to move and so use this time to find a good rental...good luck! ... more

Ardell Dellaloggia answered:
Further to Don's comment below, that change which is now completed generally only gives the option of Pending or Pending Backup and that is part of the contract if the addendum is attached. There was a verey odd time, and I totally agree with the questioner, when they will showing as Active. It may take a little time for all agents to catch up with the new rule that replaced the last new rule.

For agents, look up Rule 120 which indicates the Status should be Pending or Pending BU and NOT actively for sale.
