You could; but unless we are talking about short sales there's really not much of a need to do this. On REO's or privately owned you'll know (in most cases) within 3-4 business days if your offer is accepted or not. ... more

Commherke,

It doesnt sound to me like you could be considered a first-time homeowner. My question to you is, why are you wanting to be considered a first time homebuyer? Are you applying for bond money, or what is the significance?

Sincerely,

The easiest way to explain it is that the finding fee is the cost of using the VA to acquire a loan with no money down. Being a veteran and using this program in the past has made me more appreciative of it. It is the only program out there that allows you to purchase a home with no money out of your pocket and not restrict where you can buy a home. ... more

I'm not sure if Trulia will consider or knows that 638 Kimbro was a vacant lot when it sold. It was also REO / Bank owned property. If you are worried about the price affecting the neighborhood comps, it won't. Appraisers must use comparable homes to the property they are doing the appraisal on. I will be glad to e-mail you comps for that particular area or any other area you are interested in. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or what I can do to help you.

Thanks,
Jason Stewart

Scott Godzyk answered:
In most cases these homes are unable to be purchased before auction. The bank doesnt own it yet, so they can not sell it. The owner probably owes so much that they can not sell it at market price.

Once the auction is set, it is unlikely teh bank will postpone the auction for the owner to try a short sale.

My tips are to attend teh auction but do you homework, any liens or secind mortgages are the buyers resposnibility as well as evicting any occupants. Waiting until after the auction is the best way, as teh deed is cleared, occupants evicted and property cleaned.

Good luck with the property

Have you found yourself a REALTOR yet? A Real Estate Professional has access to the Multiple Listing Service and should easily be able to assist you. If you send me a message (and you can do so from my Trulia Profile Page) containing your email address, I can email you Condos that are currently listed on Hebert Street in Capital Heights. That's a hot area and what I consider to be one of the most hopping and exciting parts of town! ... more

I'd be glad to help you find a rental in UV or around LSU. They come and go, depending on the time of the year. Its a very nice complex. I know of several others similar to it.
