  • your realtor will be able to look into them for you and find out if the bank is allowing them to be shown, sometimes they are not shown right away.

    Talk to your realtor that is why she is getting paid, so you dont have to do all the leg work. I loved my realtor she rocked!

  • your realtor should be able to show them.. unless they're up for auction you might have more of a problem... whatever you do make sure you get an inspection before you buy... we've backed out of so many foreclosures in the past year because of all the hidden strings that were attached

  • i just got a bank onwed home, luckily nothing major was wrong with it. it is better to pay the $300 for the inspection then to not know about things and them cost you way more then $300 . (i payed $300, may be different for you)

  • Bad karma...

    Answer by Anonymous at 5:44 AM on Jan. 16, 2010

  • Ok anon, so should ALL the foreclosed homes just sit there because of "bad karma"? Things happen and life goes on, we lost a house 10 years ago because we just got in over our heads. Our new house was a foreclosure that a person bought and flipped. I feel bad for the people who lost the house but why should the house sit there empty when there is a happy family living in it now?
