I see houses I am interested in on Auction.com. I see they are advertised as occupied when I drive by they look darn vacant,,,but cant say for sure. It SAYS right on their site its a crime to tresspass or bother tenants in any way.
Do YOU knock on the door, peer thru the windows anyway??? Are you uncomfortable with buying a house you havent seen the inside of??And possible defects it holds? I have seen a few houses the foundation is completely junk,toast. HOW do you compensate for that in auction bidding?
What would happen if you found out later it was a horrific murder scene etc?
OR do they let you look inside sometimes?
I see these houses that look good from the outside but yet havent sold on numerous times of multiple online auctions. Will they disclose their reserve?
I have never bought on auction.com, but I have seen the same notices. Trespassing is a crime. However, knockin on someones door is not the same thing as tresspassing. There is no way it is a crime to knock on a door. If it is I have some people to talk to the town about. Now if someone asks you to leave you should leave. Otherwise I say knock. I must admit though I have never bought an occupied forclosure. Or any forclosure actually.
