rehoboth: Candid talk of Foreclosures and Bank Owned properties ( First Time Buyers must read) - 02/23/11 11:43 AM
Fact: Bank owned properties are difficult to finance due to your loan companies requirement of Title 5 Certification ( septic passing). When you pursue a bank owned house, you, the buyer are responsible for the title 5 inspection, de-winterization costs for home inspection, and other requirements that your lender will want. In other words, bank owned properties are sold as is, and all buyer lenders will not allow for a failed septic system. You could spend upwards of $1000.00 of your money prior to owning the house. Very rare will the bank that owns the house allow for contingencies like these. (2 comments)

There are homes IN the market.. then there are homes that are just ON the market. Buyers appreciate homes in great condition, nicely located real estate that is priced fair. The $8000.00 tax credit with great interest rates for buyers has also helped. Higher (2 comments)

The outside of the home is set on (0 comments)
