inspection report/appraisal on a foreclosureMy husband and I have been trying to purchase a foreclosure now for over 2 months. We submitted 2 offers but both were rejected. We felt our offers were fair so we paid privately for a full appraisal. The appraisal came in EXACTLY at what we offered. We then paid for a home inspection which turned up 40k in needed repairs. The bank refuses to look at or consider the property condition and listing agent keeps saying "AS IS" sale. While we understand that, we are simply trying to advise them WHY our offer is what it is. We have been told, that neither of these factors really matter to the bank. They simply have a 'number' based on DOM and will not consider any outside information and do NOT want to be advised of issues with property condition because then they would have to disclose it. HELP! We are not sure what to think/believe. It's hard to conceive that the bank would not need to consider the appraised value and property condition when determining an appropriate sales price or offer?!?!December 11 2010 - Richmond00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
