You can first start by doing a search for the property address on the web. The local court house will have this info as well. Maybe one of the fastest ways is to ask a local Realtor if they can pull up the tax info and it should show the past selling history. I hope this helps with your search. ... more

Good morning Lionslevi25

CMA = Comparable Market Analysis.

This means you compare the Property to others that are Active , gone Pending (received an offer) or
Sold, which are near similar in square footage and lot size.

Ask your Realtor.

You can offer as little as you want.

What you should do is determine what the real value of the property is. Ask your Realtor to do a CMA on the property. Then pay (and offer) no more than the house is worth.

You make your bid contingent on an inspection. So, you bid first. There's no point in paying several hundred dollars for an inspection on a property you might not even get. However, if you know a contractor, you can ask the contractor to walk through the house and give you his/her opinions of what needs to be done. It's not an inspection, but it will give you some indication of what may need to be addressed.

Hope that helps.

Hi I live and work in Wise County. THAT is a great question! First and foremost, to get the most up to date and accurate answers (because ALL of the programs are changing October 1st, 2008) you need to find a reputable lender in your area. IF you do not know one or have a good working relationship with your personal bank, try giving Julie Wallace at Premiere Lending here in Decatur a call. She works loans in several surrounding counties. Email me and I will give you all her contact information. I look forward to hearing from you. ... more
