A buyers specialist will be able to access the properties you are interested in and set up appointments for you to view the homes. I usually suggest asking friends and family for the name and number of a realtor that they have used. If they don't know of anyone try a few of the major sites (Keller Williams, Coldwell Banker etc.) and read the profiles of different agents. Many agents specialize in working with first time home buyers. Call a few of the agents and ask questions. Get to know the agents. It will help you narrow down your search.There are lots of fantastic agents out there. Best of luck finding the right agent and congrats on making the move towards home ownership. ... more

Generally speaking, foreclosure is a public, bidding process. You can bid whatever you wish starting with the minimum bid, but others can and will bid as well. The sale price will be the amount of the highest bid. Remember there are a lot of other factors involved in foreclosures - you will probably not be able to see the inside of the home, there could be other title issues, and many traps for the inexperienced and furthermore, there are differences from state to state, including the right of the original homeowner to "redeem" their property for as much as a year after the foreclosure sale - meaning all that you went through could be for nothing. It's a good idea to check into all of the local nuances of foreclosures before bidding. Perhaps attend some foreclosure sales to observe before jumping in yourself. Good luck to you. ... more

Hi Kendra-
Our office works with many banks to negotiate short sales. Yes, when you agree to a short sale, your credit is affected and you can not walk away from the sale with any assets what so ever, however, the negative reporting on your credit is a lot worse if you simply "abandon" your payments and let the bank foreclose on your property. Also, a foreclosure will stick to your credit for a much longer period than a short sale will.
If you would like to talk, please feel free to give us a call.
