I am getting nervous. We are attempting to purchase a REO property that needs work. I live in the Washington DC area and its going for $185K. I am nervous it will not make that appraisal. We are applying for a FHA 203K loan, and as a result we are requesting about $29K worth of repairs. I am just wondering how this all works. If it comes UNDER what the asking price is BEFORE repairs, what is our next course of action. Do they take in consideration that we are getting repairs done. The loan would be $215K, and similar homes go for that price. The home originally sold for $285K before the housing crash. Then again it was foreclosed on and purchased for $212K earlier this year. Then put up for sale at $190K. They would only go to $185K when we submitted offer. So we got it for LESS than they must have thought it was worth?&nbsp;<br \><br \>8 replies Wed, 01 Oct 2014 15:42:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Appraisal-Question/561336/ 2014-10-01T15:42:00Z REO Property with Structural Issues http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/REO-Property-with-Structural-Issues/555978/ Hi all. My question is I just got a home inspected that I submitted an offer for. The issue(s) that were found are NONE of the included appliances work (no biggie). The hot water heater is broken, and someone moved attic opening to a hallway and in doing so removed 3 trusses from attic. My inspector said a building engineer needs to be brought in to make sure its structurally sound. My question is, since it's a bank owned property, will the bank at least repair the trusses considering it is not structurally sound? We have a contract that states we can back out of deal, but we like the property and just want them to fix the trusses at least for us. My issue is if this doesn't get fixed we can't buy I'm sure because what bank would approve a loan for a property with a structural question.<br \><br \>8 replies Fri, 22 Aug 2014 15:10:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/REO-Property-with-Structural-Issues/555978/ 2014-08-22T15:10:00Z Can you get approval for a bank loan to purchase a home following a foreclosure? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-you-get-approval-for-a-bank-loan-to-purchase-a-home-following-a-foreclosure/499339/ 1 reply Thu, 27 Jun 2013 20:56:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-you-get-approval-for-a-bank-loan-to-purchase-a-home-following-a-foreclosure/499339/ 2013-06-27T20:56:00Z I placed a bid on a bank owned foreclosure.
