Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  Why are there no pictures of the inside of the house?

A:  If this is a foreclosure sale, we typically do not have access to the inside of the property, and therefore cannot take pictures of the interior.  Because we have not been inside, we cannot confirm how many bedrooms or bathrooms are in the property.  So, we must rely on the town’s public records regarding how many rooms they list.  A suggestion: You could try searching the internet for the property address to find pictures of the inside of the property from other sources.

Q:  Why isn’t the ad for the property more descriptive?

A:  If it is a foreclosure sale, we typically do not have access to the inside of the property, we cannot confirm what the interior of a foreclosure property looks like, how many rooms it actually has, or any other specifics that would enable us to make an ad more exciting and descriptive.   The only information we have is the public record and what the property looks like from the outside.

Q:  Why is there no price listed?

A:  Properties without a price are being sold by auction.  In some cases, these are foreclosures; in others, they are auctions-by-choice (the seller decides to sell their property via the auction method).  The property will go up for auction on the date noted, and the price will ultimately be determined by those bidding on the day of the sale.   The property will be sold to the highest bidder.  If it’s a property you really like, come to the auction and bid – if you are the highest bidder, it can be yours!   In other instances, we will have properties listed on our website with a price clearly marked – these are being sold via the traditional real estate listing method or through our unique hybrid method (traditional listing plus auction).
