bank owned property?
This past weekend I found a home that was forclosed on last year. I went out and looked at it before I called my real estate agent. I liked the property and I told my agent I want to make an offer, the bank has had this property over a year and I think I may be able to get it at a good price. She called the listing agent and he told her that the bank has decided to relist the property with another agent. How can I find out who the new agent will be or what bank owns it so I can make an offer before it is relisted? I am not sure if the original agent would give up this info. since he will not be getting a commision from the sell.

It won't hurt to ask. Those people try to be service oriented.

You might be surprised about the agent; a lot of agents have clauses that say they get paid if their efforts found the person, even if the contract for further searching has been cancelled... More

No, you need to go to the bank and ask them who handles the foreclosures aka a foreclosing attorney maybe? ask them who they are listing the property with. You can also do a search on mls or realtor.com and it may list some reo's in your area. Good Luck!

it's your agents job to find the listing agent. Just submit your offer and tell her to give you an answer within a week. If she can't use another agency. Realtors are a dime a dozen. No point using one that either lazy or stupid.
