Unless you've signed an exclusive with that buyer's agent, you can go with any other agent you want. Of course, keep in mind that you're not paying the buyer's agent and you are in a seller's market. So, a good buyer's agent is tough to find unless you're in the market for higher end properties, perhaps $1-5M. You're already in the right place to find the next one. ... more

Absolutely. You would need to contact trailer haulers they will be able to tell you what needs to done. Usually companies that bring temporary mobile offices to construction site would be a good place to start. ... more

You can make a low offer on any sale, the question is, will it be accepted? I do find that most buyers who are willing to tolerate the short sale process expect to get some compensation for their time and trouble, so, yes by all means, make a reasonable offer, but remember that you also have to negotiate with the bank and they have the right to counter your offer. They will order an appraisal or opinion of value, they will take into consideration the condition of the home, and they will make a counter offer taking into consideration all the factors. I would expect at least one counter offer, so yes, make your initial offer accordingly, but don't be entirely ridiculous and you should be fine. ... more

Haig Istamboulian answered:
Hello,

To answer your question, it looks like the home WAS privately owned until it went to Sheriff Sale in July of 2012. The previous owner had a 6 month redemption period that has since ended.

The home currently has the Bank Of America listed as the owner. It currently is NOT on the market. It should be coming to market very soon since the redemption period ended about 2 months ago.

Let me know if you are interested in knowing when it comes to market and I can set you up on an automated search that will email you with daily updates that you can view for different properties in Pontiac.

My contact information is listed below, feel free to email me.

Thank you,

HAIG

Hello,
The question is how could this be so low in price, well there are several reasons. One is the fact that this home needs a lot of work. It has so much potential, and could be a really great home someday, if there is no strucual issues. Two there has been several drops in the price, this is a vacant home, and a foreclosure. The home has some great features if you like the old style homes with hardwood floors and a fireplace with upstairs bedrooms and a separate possible kitchen area also upstairs. There is a basement, the lot size is good with a 2 car deattched garage. This is a handyman special some would say. At one time this was a nice house. With a little hard work,it maybe again. Hope this helps, and if you would like a tour of the home, give me a call.Have a great day. ... more

Best suggestion is to start with your bank or credit union and then call different banks or mortgage companies.

Unfortunately - This is a very precarious position -

Just because you are under the contract - Is not a guarantee of acquisition.

There are many potential pitfalls in this type of transaction -

These should be examined on a case by case basis...

There is nothing to worry about with the listing agent being the owner as long as you are represented by your own buyers agent. A buyers agent will work to represent you first and foremost. If you are not currently represented by an agent I would live to help. ... more

I am in Michigan and would be happy to help you. You'll probably find someone that will work with a 604 credit score. You need to be aware of higher interest rates and higher costs when you a credit score that low. 620 credit score is the standard low end, with 640 being optimal (standard rates and costs). Also, where did you obtain your credit score. A score a consumer can obtain on their own often varies drastically from a score a business or corporation obtains. I head up my companies credit coaching initiative and would be happy to help you. Often there are simple tweaks that can be done to credit that increase scores in 5-7 days; I've gotten scores up more than 100 points in 5-7 days. Contact me directly if I can be of assistance. ... more
