Forclosed home being sold at auctionI was working on getting repair information for a home I am considering buying. The home hasn't been lived in for 6 years subsequently there are needed repairs. Prior to getting an offer to the owner the house was pulled off the market and given to an online auction company. Now the tricky part. There is no minimum bid, no reserve bid, you can bid anytime and whenever the owner feels the offer is to their liking they will stop the auction. How does someone deal with this and still get a good deal?November 03 2013 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
