Lisa, it can take a while for the status of this to be updated. In general the Trulia foreclosure properties are not reliable at all.

Rather than waiting for the information, why not simply work with an agent of your own who can provide any necessary information...

Unfortunately the property at 17 Wade Street has an accepted offer. However, if you're looking to buy specifically in that neighborhood, there is another property on the market (32 Weston) listed for $287,900. I'm happy to help you with any questions you may have. Please email me directly at jensylvester@remax.net .

Thank you,
Jen Sylvester

Chris,

It not the vehicle that you own the property in, its the ability to obtain a mortgage. Also you would need enough of a down payment to meet the banks requirements.

You would run into the same issues in obtaining a mortgage whether it be an llc, trust or mortgage given directly to you, unless on the llc or trust, the mortgage and the obligations are in someone else's name with you as the beneficiary. But I would ask an attorney, your accountant and a mortgage specialist what are the options, ramifications and benefits, if any to you. ... more

Hello Jennifer!

Contact a local Real Estate Agent as they can add information and schedule open houses in the multiple listing service. In addition, there is a section for open houses in Trulia or do an internet search in the area you are interested for open house.

Hope this information is useful.

Dear home purchaser.

How are you? How far along is the bank in the shortsale? You should identify first if there has been a negotiator assigned to this case? Whether bpos have been completed and whether (and this is very important) you've submitted a complete file to the bank? These are the first things you need to identify before deciding on whether to proceed with this deal or walk away from it. Any further questions, please feel free.


Best regards,


We don't sell homes, we sell futures!

p.s. The highest level of gratitude my clients can show me is by referring their friends and family

Richard Power answered:
We3, it's a bit difficult to answer your question based on the information provided in your question. Most standard Purchase & Sale Agreements have contingency clauses which provide you with a way out of your agreement should you not be able to get your mortgage. If you have such a contingency, and are responding within the required time frame, you should be all set. Hopefully your seller will be willing to renegotiate their price based on the latest appraisal. With regards to an additional inspection/appraisal, that will need to be determined by your lender. My suggestion would be to involve your Realtor or Attorney as soon as possible.

Good Luck

Dick
