There are two types of foreclosures, those that are going to auction and those who are through the auction and now listed with an agent. Auctions are cash only events. You can't preview the home, have any contingencies or inspections and all sales are "as is, where is and final". You shouldn't consider these. Some can be a fair value, others are a flat out rip off.
Buying a home is too big of an investment to narrow your focus too much. Bank owned homes, conventional sales and short sales are all listed with licensed agents and can be shown by an agent who represents your interests first. Consider everything, not just bank owned. There are some good buys out there from motivated sellers. You should buy a home you love, it will be a better investment in the long range than one you got a deal on, but don't like the style, location or other issue.
Find a great local agent and a great local lender. Get pre-approved and start shopping the entire market. Best of luck.

Yes I totally agree with Patrick! You do not want to buy any lists online. Interview a couple local Real Estate Agents that specialize in helping home buyers purchase bank owned foreclosures....not every agent likes or knows how to help consumers purchase bank owned homes. So, make sure they can provide references from past buyers - otherwise your experience could be frustrating. Let me know if you are still in the market for a Bank Owned home - I specialize in both Bank Owned and Short Sales - But, can also help with non distressed properties too. Either way, good luck to you Thomas! ... more

There are lease purchase properties available; however, it depends on where (location) you want to live and how much you are able or want to spend each month on rent. If you are interested in a single, detached home, monthly rentals can be $1,200 on up. Most of the rentals do not allow pets. Feel free to contact me for more information. ... more

What price convenience?

There's nothing wrong with giving strangers a big chunk of your equity just so you don't have to deal with inconveniencing your pets.
