Hello Jordan:

Would need some more specifics but couple of reasons it may not on the market yet.

Fannie may may be working on it. I have sold a couple of Fannies this year and find them with new carpet and fresh paint some not all.

There could adminstrative issues title etc.

Freddies, Fannies, and HUD's are all listed on their respective web sites and the MLS. I am not aware of way to purchase prior to a formal listing. If you looking at this as inventment property you could be enjoined from purchase for a period of time even after it hits the market.

Please feel free to contact me via my website.

Absolutely, you can earn equity from purchasing a foreclosed home. I work with several investors & first time home buyers, who have gotten some great deals in the last view months and moved in with 30K or so in equity. It all depends on the value of the property. They are not giving foreclosures away, but it is a great time to buy! Call me @ 615-582-1156 and I can personally answer your questions for you. Thanks LaTonya ... more

Have you spoken with Wells Fargo yet? You will need to provide a hardship letter, income tax returns, etc. Do you have it listed yet? Call or email and I'll be glad to assist you.

Appraciating the position you are in,

This question will no good!

The thought that a potential Buyer will actually see this note, are phenominal!

Put a large poster on the front door; "DO NOT DISTURB OCCUPANT"

You might also call the Listing Agent and alert him.

Good luck and may God bless

You already know that Homepath has
low down
no appraisal
no PMI

you would be putting less cash out for the renovations and you would have tax deductions.

this sounds like a no-brainer to me:
but, what's important to YOU?

Good luck and may God bless

Did you mean the 37207 zip? You can email me directly at and I can point you in the right direction of a lender who can help you. THDA allows for 0% down. In fact, I am working with a couple right now who is going with THDA.

Matthew Voss answered:
I guess the answer to this question is how much work do you want to do? Is it a cash purchase or would you require special financing? In my market yes, but it would most likely be a bank owned or HUD home! ... more

I would ask your landlord, they will know. You will see a notice placed on the door at some point saying it will be foreclosed at some time in the future.

In most states after foreclsoure, it is 30 days, however there is additional time if you request a hearing and such. After the foreclosure the house is assigned to an asset management company to sell, they will send soemone to your house to usually offer you cash for keys, you move within 30 days and leave the house clean and tehy can offer you from $1000 to $2000, you can try and negotiate for more money of you can move quicker. for eviction laws in your state just google landlord tenant law TN ... more

Don Martin answered:
All the old rules and guidelines concerning the rent amount as compared to the value of the property have almost evaporated. Your (or any given) neighborhood has had a fair number of distressed or uncomfortable sales lately. An increased inventory of homes for sale always increases the inventory of homes for rent (since sometimes that is an option for a seller) which increases supply without increasing demand. Your home should rent for $700 +- depending on appearance in and out and on condition of systems (ac, heat, appliances), but you, being there in the area, should have a pretty good handle on that. Fix anything that need fixing, clean/paint anything that needs it, then GET IT EXPOSED in as many places as you can find and think of. If you need more precise pointers feel free to give us a call at 973-8970. We have become the resource for FOR-SALE-BY-OWNERS. ... more

Laura Reilly answered:
Have an attorney brief you on "Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009." This legislation provided that leases would survive a foreclosure -- meaning the tenant could stay at least until the end of the lease, and that month-to-month tenants would be entitled to 90 days' notice before having to move out (this notice period is longer than any state's non-foreclosure notice period, a real boon to tenants). Check to see if your rental agreement qualifies. Good Luck

Tina Evans answered:
Did she state what was going to happen to the house you are renting? Who gets it? You have a binding contract for one year and it should say in that contract the terms of notice to move and the circumstances to support it.
If you are unsure, you need to discuss your lease with a real estate attorney and let them advise you of the proper legal options you have. Talk to the husband and see if he has any information as well.
Good luck,
Tina Evans, Broker
