You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Amanda Albert answered:
I always recommend that my clients make an offer that will create a win - win situation in which both parties will be happy. Low balling is a tactic that makes the buyer and the agent look bad and gives Agents a bad reputation.

I am not sure what you are trying to do here. I hope you will explain a little more.

Brittibob...You would have to define what "best" means to you. Lowest price? Maybe. Longest waiting time? Definitely! Some homes have taken 2 or more years in the recent past to make it from short sale window closed to on the market as a foreclosure. Things are speeding up now, but it can still take quite awhile. If it takes a long time and the market continues up, by the time it shows up on the MLS, the price may be up beyond where you might have gotten it in short sale or pre-foreclosure. So...without a crystal ball, we have no way of knowing what will be "best" for any particular house. Best of luck with whatever you do...Jim ... more

I assume you're referring to a short sale? The bank will only accept an offer at "Fair Market Value". (what other similar properties have sold for in the last 6 months). Have your REALTOR do a CMA (comparative market analysis) on it to determine what a fair offer might be.

I just happened to write a blog post about why Buyers may not want to consider buying a short sale. Check it out!

i would give a Realtor a call, that's what they get paid for, so use their expertise in tracking down the information you need to buy your next home. They are there to help. If you want to try on your own, you can check with your counties recorder's office, they will have information on computer or microfiche about the properties. ... more

Its a newer feature that means that information was updated by the listing agent & or information was polled through the Multiple Listing Service to update the information on there. I hope that makes sense! :) ... more

Deborah Madey answered:
You are asking us to predict human behavior after an experience that was most likely traumatic for a person. Someone who has lost their home in a foreclosure action may be feeling a great sense of emotional loss as a result. There is no way to know if the party who once owned the home in question would warmly receive your call and want to help, or if your call would be salt in a wound that was barely starting to heal. ... more

Dan Ross answered:
Weeks is the optimistic estimate. You could be waiting for 2-3 months for an answer. There are several factors that determine the wait time. One of the key ones is the home value. The higher that value, the higher up the food chain at the bank the approval has to come from. Another factor is the offer. Is it close to asking? If so, you could get a reply quicker. If it is way under, it will probably take some time.
Banks are swamped with REO's and pre-foreclosures. They have a greatly increased work load and reduced staff because of their financial woes.
