Ask your lender, but odds are
Unless they extend the program, you must close on your purchase by November 30th, and more than likely that will not be enough time to get your loan approved and closed.
The volume of closings that will hit, all trying to close by the deadline? Oh boy.
It will be like trying to watch a python digest a hippo. Gonna get clogged up there in the middle, plus a major holiday takes out the last Thursday (and maybe Friday) prior to the end of the month. The title/escrow companies are going to need combat pay.

Make any offer you want....if your current agent won't do it, find another agent. The seller's may not be aware of the comparable sales. Even if the seller gets lucky and finds a buyer at that price....sounds like there are no sales to support the value; thereby making it virtually impossibe to get a mortgage. If the seller's are serious about finding a buyer, they will have to sell it for a reasonable market value......or wait for a (naive) cash buyer.

SII, the REO properties will be listed through a REO Broker which your agent can set you up on a search so you receive those properties when they become available. Auctions are held periodically. There was one in Feb. at the convention center which was advertised and you were able to preview them prior to the auction. Here' are some links: This next link is for city properties for sale which are usually tax deliquent properties which may or may not have additional liens. Harry Davis Auction also does property auctions.;
You do not have to pay to do property searches on these sites.
