I am sure there is some "owner carry/finance" homes in Corpus Christi, but the market is very limited. The owners usually advertise on Craigslist, the Caller Times or

Ron Thomas answered:
Talk them down from WHAT?
Is the LISTING PRICE reflective of the Market Value?
Is it inflated because the Seller thinks that they've got the Market cornered?
Or is the Listing Price artifically low to attract multiple offers?
You need to know which of these is the reality:
Have you done your diligence as to the Market Value, or are you assuming?

Good luck and may God bless

Unless it is sold at auction, it will most likely return to the market listed with a local realtor having been cleaned out and a clear deed. You can check the house once vacant as the listing agent will put their number on the door as an emergency contact. ... more

You will need to check with the person who is leasing the property. They can tell you the pet policy and deposits, if they allow pets on the property. You can expect a large pet deposit with 3 dogs. Good luck with you search for a property. Call me if I can help.

Thank you,

Go to the Sunday open houses in the neighborhood you are thinking about buying. Ask lots of questions and see which agent seems to be able to answer your questions in a friendly manner. After a few open house meetings, you will get a "feel" for the right agent.

What is your agent advising you to as a fair offer--you need to be aware of recently sold similar properties in the immediate area--review the data and make a determination as to a fair offer--keep in mind that if the property is priced on target for today's market or slightly below, multiple offers may occur. ... more

Marlene Bienes-Realtor answered:
Dear Tina,

This is a good question, a could agent is a person that you can trust and that will provide you with the service and the exposure to your property. A person you feel comfortable with to perform this task to your best interest. This is a person that will provide you with the same care as they would if the property would be thiers. Also just because an agent has many listings does not say that they are a good agent. The question is will they provide you with the service you expect and the exposure your property needs. Anybody can list properties and let other agent sell thier listing for them. It's the marketing the listing agent provides because just listing it on the Multiple Listing service and putting a yard sign on your yard and maybe advertising your property occasionally on the local paper does not really cut it anymore.

I suggest to interview a few agents and see what each bring to the table and the one you feel can provide you with the service you expect from a real estate professional.

Best of luck on your search.

Hi lowery! taxes you pay almost the same around Corpus Christy area. It is will be around 3% of your apprasel value. But Also becouse of Location..Location...Location..
I think it is will be a little + or - 3%. Better advice go to web: www.nuececountytaxcollector before you buying the house. Search address of the house and you will see how much owner paying for now.

Bruce Lynn answered:
A short sale is when the seller wants to sell the house for less than what they owe and do not have the funds to make up the difference. They want the bank to allow the sale and either work out alternative arrangements or have the bank forgive the difference. These very rarely close quickly and typically you must have much patience to make it work. Sometimes it will take months and not work out.
By default if you are buying a house as a short sale there is at least one lien on the house. Just because it is a short sale does not mean it will go into foreclosure. Sometimes the owner will stay there paying until prices go back up. They want to move, but won't move until they don't have to pay out of pocket. Now if they aren't paying the mortgage now, then at some point it will go into foreclosure. If you have started paperwork it is possible you could get the house, but will likely take some months. The department your seller is dealing with now, is a totally different department than the REO department that handles foreclosures in many cases, unless it is a very small bank. If it is a big bank/lender like BofA, Countrywide, etc then they'll be different people and different departments and I'd be surprised if they talk. Also it could be months before it goes to foreclosure and comes out where you can buy it.
My thought is if you really need to move at the end of the month, then you might look at another house. Your agent should be able to give you an idea on how to proceed.
