Amybeth; My advice would be to find a Real Estate professional to represent you in the area where you want to buy. It is not going to cost you a penny. He will help you out with everything that you need to know starting with showing you the property, giving you his input as to how much to offer. If it is a Bank owned property, the Bank will answer you fairly quickly. Sometimes in as little as two days. Sometimes they take longer. Also, depending on the area and the amount of foreclosures that are for sale, will give you and your agent an idea of the competition and the price to offer. If Bank owned houses are selling very rapidly, sometimes with overbidding wars, you have to offer a little more than the asking price; but of course, it all depends if the asking price is very reasonable to begin with.

Sometimes buyers can make a good purchase in this way. One needs to be well-informed though to inspect the property, investigate possible problems, know the area, and current market values before yidou become emotionally involved in the excitement and overbid. In addition, you need to learn the local laws on original owner reinstatment. The time frame can vary and extend even AFTER you have closed on the purchase. Good luck to you! ... more
