Assuming you are the owner, you should contact an attorney immediately. A home in foreclosure is not final until it goes through a redemption period after the sherriff's sale. An attorney will be able to help you meander through this ordeal. Good luck to you. ... more

Are you asking how much of an outstanding loan is on the property? I don't think that is public knowledge.

Jeri Creson answered:
Scary that your agent seems too busy and preoccupied. Let's start there. Have a chat with your agent and express your concerns. If that doesn't work, approach the agent�39;s broker. Your listing technically belongs to the brokerage, not the agent, and the broker can make the call to either get you another agent, step in personally, or release you from the listing contract. Next, it's all about price right now. you need to take a hard look at what IS selling, not necessarily what an appraiser says it's worth. Have your agent pull comparable homes to yours that have gone into escrow within a very short time of being listed. That's where the bulk of activity is. Think "what price range is drawing the offers". You can be a little above the "opportunity" price, but too far above it, towards the ceiling of your appraisal range is going to leave you lonely, wondering where all the shoppers are.

Interest rates are rising, naturally triggering an increased urgency for some shoppers. I suggest making your moves now, not later to adjust price while the buyers are in the market looking for good homes to close on before rates get higher. Later, your price drop may be much more significant.

Hello Mrslg,
That's great that you have found a foreclosure that you wish to purchase. I would advise you to work with a buyer's agent that is experienced with the foreclosure process as he/she can counsel you as to what the process is and what to expect. Keep in mind that foreclosures are priced under market value and usually will receive multiple offers. An experienced and knowledgeable agent will perform the due diligence needed to give you information about the property that you may not be able to discover so can advise you accordingly.
I hope this is helpful to you.
Good Luck!

Jen Burns answered:
Start watching the market wow so you are an educated buyer on what foreclosures are going for in your area of preference. Also, choose your Realtor now so you can build the relationship and they can help you watch the area you are interested in. Having worked in the foreclosure market for some time I can tell you that purchases requiring financing typically take at least 30 to 45 days to close. There can be delays, however a good Realtor can research which financial institution owns the property and can give you an idea if delays can be expected after your contract is accepted. Be ready to act fast if you find a foreclosure in good shape and in a good neighborhood. Often times the bank will price the property to entice multiple offers and a quick sale. Please let me know if I can be of further help. Thanks for the great question. ... more

550 is just too low for a loan. WHy don't you consider working with someone ( or doing it yourself) on improving your score to 620 which is the minimum for most programs. Within 6 months you should be able to be where you need to.
