Well I'm sure your agent has run comparables on the neighborhood, however I have found when working with VA foreclosures that they are usually pretty willing to negotiate. You should find out when the bidding period is over if it hasn't already passed and then have your agent call and see if there are any other offers on the property. If not then go ahead and bid what you feel comfortable with. Hope this helps.... more
Michelle, the contract would automatically be void. The owner who negotiated the contract is no longer the owner of the property and thus doesn't have the ability to sell it. Have you contacted the bank to let them know that you had a contract on the property? They might honor it with careful consideration.
Good luck!... more

VA does negotiate. Once the slp expires and they don't get the amount they want to net, they start looking at offers as they come in. They do counter offer like foreclosures.
The only one out there that doesn't negotiate is HUD.
Yes Les, homes in Rowlett are negotiable just like any other area. There is really no formula as to how much of a discount you take off for an offer. It's on an individual home basis as to how long it's been on the market, the asking price, what it's really worth, what you think it's worth to you, etc...
I am in the Rowlett area and will be happy to assist you.... more
It doesn't mean anything to me either. It may be the beginning of a sentense where it dragged on the private remarks... I'll be happy to look it up in the MLS and check the story on it. Feel free to call me at 214-289-8555
