Frank A Jakob answered:
That depends on many factors:
1. What type of construction?
2.What geo area of country?
3.What season?
4.How many occupants?
5.What is heated square footage?
6.What type of utilities::heat pump, electric strip heaters, window air conditioners,gas, water heater, etc. etc.

Probably best to ask the owner who has lived there for more than one year.

Yes, I have worked with Miller Homes in Arbor Lakes, and they have built off-site for a few of my clients. They are custom builders out of Kidron, Ohio. In my opinion they are great to work with and build a great home. I can provide references from past clients. ... more

Duane Johnston answered:
Sometimes it is crazy that banks will not accept an offer on a home and then later on end up selling it for less than the first happens all the time. You have a good chance of being able to puchase the home at the sheriffs sale for less than your first offer, but know what your number is and stick with it. Also be ready to put down 10 percent or more at the end of the auction and complete the sale within 30 days. Those are the requirements at most sheriff auctions.
Good Luck,
Duane Johnston,

Tim Moore answered:
Most likely you will be buying a house blind. It is not normal for a potential bidder to get access to the homes they auction off at the courthouse steps. This is one reason it is suggested that you do your investigations before the auction and you will be running the risk of buying and finding out all the bad things later. A title search is important but all too often bidders don't want to spend hundreds and not even get the house. ... more

Your attorney would do the title search or hire a title company to do it for them. Survey while not typically required are absolutely worht having done if there's land with your property. Without a survey you will compromise your title insurance. Again this is typically ordered by your attorney.

Good Luck!

Thomas Lane answered:
Yes, it is indeed a good idea to consult an attorney before purchasing even if you are planning to get it from a sheriffs sale. Buying a new home requires you to understand some laws governing the acquisition of property titles and the taxation system that may go with it. A little money that you pay to an attorney maybe worth it for you to save some headache when your transaction come up unclean and make you go with the process over and over again, or worst bought a defective and complicated property that you should not buy in the first place. ... more

The standard financing scheme that you can get out on most financial institution is 20/80 and 30/70 percent, meaning you have to pay the 20% or 30% equity before you can finance the remaining portion of the transaction price. But there are a few who could offer you a much lighter scheme than this if you will just be patient enough to look for them, start searching and see if you can find something that can really fit your budget well. ... more

I think you clicked the wrong button. You might also try the MLS, or the tax records to contact the owner directly if not in MLS. If it was r - track or one like it, the property may not be for sale yet. They use "bait" properties to get people to pay for their service. ... more

Joan Congilose answered:
Hi Corey,
Unfortunately the seller has the right to change their mind during negotiations and even during the attorney review period . It is not typical but it does sometimes happen. It could very well be that after calculating what they will actually net from the sale of the property they will not have enough proceeds to pay off their loan or to make their move. It may also just be seller remorse, maybe you were one of the 1st offers if it is a newer listing and they think they priced it too low. Try and find out why they changed their mind about your offer & see if you can get them to reconsider your offer. If not move on and look for another house. Better that it happened now then after you incur expenses for home inspections and appraisals. ... more
