If you plan to use financing to purchase your real estate investment, it's a good idea to get pre-qualified by your preferred lender.
Here are some resources to get you started and are provided as a public convenience only.
Typically, you will have two weeks to 30 days to close. The first thing you want to do is make sure your lending source will be willing to lend you the amount of money you will want to buy the property for at auction. You don't want to wait until after you make the winning bid before you obtain approval for a mortgage loan.
Buying a house at auction is quite different from buying a house the conventional way.
Here are some key differences:
- There are no contingencies. You cannot simply withdraw the winning bid because you cannot get a mortgage or you cannot sell your current house in time.
- If you back out, even for a good reason, you could be liable not only for the earnest money (usually a percentage of the high bid in most Father Time® auctions), but also for damages which are clearly stated in the signed contract you were required to sign on auction day.
