If they are listed with a real estate office, yes. I have had several listings where there was an auction scheduled but we did a successful short sale. There are so many factors - how many times the auction has been postponed, how many banks are involved, have there been offers before, etc, that it is impossible to tell whether or not you really have a chance. The deal with short sales is not to get emotionally involved with the house until you get the approval from the bank. Good luck. Call me if you need any help. ... more

The homeowner gets notice to vacate before trustee sale but sometimes it's still occupied by the owner. After the auction date, if it goes back to lender(at this time almost everything goes back to the lender), then it depends on the lender, how fast they send their realtor to give notice to vacate(7-14 days from the day of notice) in order to list the property and sell to 3rd party.

Are you looking to buy a house? Let me know if I can help you further.

The banks have a great deal of expense in a foreclosure procedure. They lose money on most of their foreclosed property. The bank is looking at the bottom line of each individual property. They look at the bottom line for that department. So, they usually price the properties at fair market value for their condition, location, size, etc. I would start my decision making with some research. Determine the fair market value and start by offering a little less. You want to offer enough that they will take you seriously but at the same time not 'leaving money on the table'. Often, a good REALTOR in the area can save you a great deal of money when purchasing foreclosures. Good luck! ... more

Todd Norsted answered:
Typically, these sales are handled just as a normal sale, however Purchase Agreements need bank approval and usually on thier purchase agreement, and that can take anywhere from a few days to months to get an answer back on. The inspection window if there is one is sometimes tightened up, also. I'd get a realtor involved to represent you that has experience in this sort of transaction, for sure. Oh, and these properties are sometimes sold "as-is". Other than that, they are reasonably similar to the typical resale transaction. ... more
