First time home buyer here. Why are my mortgage broker and real estate agent discouraging me from making offers on bank owned properties?

Sun, 01 Jun 2014 14:06:10 +0000

Hi Guys,

First time home buyer here so I might have some questions that seem pretty obvious. So I am looking at buying a condo. I'm 25. I currently live with my parents rent free. I am seeing alot of great bank owned properties on the market and I would love to make an offer. Downside is, I don't have the full amounts in cash most of the properties are asking for. So I will be putting a 20% down.

My mortgage broker and real estate agent strongly discourage me from going after bank owned properties. They say it takes too long to hear from the bank. This annoys me because, I currently live at home so its not like I URGENTLY need to find a place. I have the time to wait it out.

Are they just being lazy because its the same amount of paper work for less commission? Does anyone have experience buying bank owned properties without the full amount in cash? How long did it take to hear back?

Thank you for guiding a newbie!

edit: Thanks for the advice guys. I just wanted to add that I'm thinking of buying a condo, and not a house. NOt sure if this makes a difference in anything. I also live in NJ.

edit 2: Wow! I just checked back on the comments and never expected to get this much. Thank you so much for taking time out to respond to me. I'm sorry If i don't get a chance to directly thank you. Please know your advice is greatly appreciated.

What's the most messed up thing you've seen a real estate agent do/say?

Last year when i was looking for a pet friendly place in Somerville, I had not one, but three agencies seriously suggest that I put my dog down to help find me a place. Joking or not that's still messed up right? What are your real estate stories?
