Pre-Foreclosure House Inquiry

4 Replies

So I passed by this home in my town and say it looked very distressed but people seemed to be living there. I google the address and it came up on foreclosure.com with this info saying it's in pre-foreclosure. In my mind once it hit this website it's too late to try and get a deal as many people have probably tried to inquire. I'm new to this so my assumption may not be correct. Any advice on a situation like this? Thanks

Pre-foreclosure data is not really accurate. It usually gets filed when an owner is behind on their mortgage. The fact that it was field in 2014 might mean that they're in process of bankruptcy filings to try to resolve it. While it is a small indication of the financials of the property it is not always the reality of it.
