Values haven't moved. Prices have.

Nationally, we're looking at single digit price moves. But, in certain local markets, prices have moved as much as 15% in the past 6 months.

Hi Angie,
Believe it or not, right now is a great time to sell!!
Even though December is historically slower, there are still many active buyers and multiple offers are still the rule of the day!
If your house is ready to role, take advantage of the low inventory and go now!!
If you need help, just let me know.
Cheers,
Linda Baker, Alain Pinel Realtors

Buying a house at auction is a very risky business and generally only seasoned investors will do so. You cannot view the house before the auction so you have no idea what condition it is in. You have to pay a substantial amount of cash and then the balance within a short time. The auction more than likely will take place at the county courthouse.

If you want to purchase a home that is in foreclosure, your best plan of action is to find a local realtor to work with. The seller pays the realtors' fee in almost all cases so it costs you nothing and you will have a real expert on your team. You can probably get just as good a deal and with far, far less risk.

Hi Lyndamylou,

There are two answers, I can give you. One if a property is listed at 100k, you can still put an offer on it. I will tell you it's very competive right now, there are alot of big investors buying up properties in that price range and inventory is low. So, some buyers are actually coming in higher on their offers.

Depends on the type of listing too! If it's an approved short sale. Sometimes a listing agent will say it's an approved price. That means the bank will not accept any less for the property than 100k. But an approved short sale does have a time frame too so it's best to have an experienced buyer's agent help put your offer together. They can contact the agent and find out how old the approval is for you.

I hope that answers your questions.A buyer's agent can tell you what tell you what the property is worth and help you come up with the best offer. And remember the buyer's agent is paid by the seller! If your in need help.... you can check out my buyer's presentation for myself and company at www.c21be3.com

Don't simply rely on online estimated values, as some may be inaccurate, nor updated; rather review comps with your agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area...

Haig Istamboulian answered:
Hello,

The easiest way is to go to the County and look at the recordings of upcoming Sheriff Sales. Those sales are also posted in a Legal Newspaper that covers that area where the home is located.

Even some of the online sites such as RealtyTrac post PRE Sheriff Sale properties as such, but I would not count on that too much. I personally would go down to the County and check the records if it is really important.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

HAIG

The information is inaccurate. You need someone locally to do a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). Contact Rick Hauser at 847-809-6867.

Armando,
Until the property is listed there will not be information available. You can ask you agent to set up a search to notify you when a property listing comes up on Timber Crest in Frisco.

Ideally, you can get all this from your realtor. Alternatively, you can view properties either here or on realtor.com

Anna M Brocco answered:
Keep in mind that RealtyTrac's information may not always be accurate and oftentimes can be misleading--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. If you are interested in foreclosures, work with an agent, as most do end up being listed by a broker--he/she will have access to reliable information--also don't overlook traditional sales as some may turn out to be a much better bargain than some of the foreclosure properties. ... more

This home is not currently on the market. It could still be in redemption and the seller has not listed it as a short sale.

If you're talking about foreclosures sold at auction on the courthouse steps, most of the time they are taken back by the bank. The bank will eventually put it back in inventory with a real estate broker. When that happens is up to the bank. ... more

De Vonte Williamson answered:
Good Morning Ronald. Congratulations on your decision to buy a home. It is an excellent time to do so. To answer your question, we will need to know if the property is currently on the market? If so, any of us can assist you in placing an offer on the property. However, if the property is not listed, and you found the property information on a website like RealtyTrac, it would be more of a challenge because the property is not listed yet.

I hope this answered your question! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by the ways below.

Wishing you all the best,
