Check or work with an agent; also check local print media for by owner rentals, always verify ownership before exchanging any money; word of mouth, etc.

There's nobody online who can answer that question for you.

What is the houses true value? Have you had a market analysis done? Just because they're asking $339,000, doesn't mean the house is worth anything near that... or perhaps it's worth more than that.

Find out the value, and offer accordingly, if the house is worth it to you.

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--or some other fees, 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--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

Spirit Messingham answered:
There are people who specialize in this, give them a call. I would go that route vs advice from a forms board on something that is so important. Have you spoken with the bank or whomever is foreclosing? Many times they will work with the owner.
Best of luck.

Thomas McGiveron answered:
it is hard to tell what you are saying.

but the last part i understand. if you are selling your home and you have an approved sale by your bank(s) - you absolutely should move to close. FIND A PLACE to live - quick. and be done with it.

a business friend of mine has a great place in Huntington. NO COMMISSION for real estate - he's a friend of mine and his place is VERY nice.

Gail Gladstone answered:
In order to purchase a short sale, you must be in a position to wait 6-9 months for the bank to finally approve you and then you may have only days to be ready to close.

Most short sales end up at selling at current market prices, so why not purchase a home in the classic way at current market values.

Foreclosures generally need tons of money to get them back to liveable conditions. Folks who are being foreclosed on are angry and take it out on the house before they leave.

Contact me at and I will give you a free Listing Book account that will help you find what you are looking at ... at a price you can afford.

Hang in there. You are selling in an extremely difficult housing environment in every way; as you know. Be persistant, get those open houses going and work on advertising the house and you'll get it done. You are not alone, there are zillions out there trying to sell, but things will improve. Most important-bug the heck out of your agent and stay with it. ... more
