Is it much harder to buy a home thats owned by the bank from a foreclosure?I'm a first time home buyer and it seems to me foreclosures are a significant amount cheaper. More bang for the buck so to speak. Is it much harder to get a foreclosure? Is there just more paperwork? Is it pretty much the same as if its not a foreclosure? Just have your realtor make an offer? I have been pre-approved from a lender.June 12 2013 - Nashville00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
