What to Expect When Making an Offer on a Bank Owned Home in Maricopa AZ:
Prior to the $8,000 Tax Credit expiring: On average, you can expect for there to be multiple offers and for the selling price to be at or above list price (if not thousands over). After the Seller receives the offer, you should have a response within 7 to 10 days if not sooner. Sometimes the Seller will inform you that there are multiple offers and other times they will not.
Since the end of the Tax Credit: I am seeing the inventory of bank owned homes slowly increasing as well on being on the market for a longer period of time. Is it not uncommon for homes to be on the market for weeks without an offer and some properties are being reduced accordingly. However, if you think about making an offer below list price, banks will likely counter very close to list price. If the banks receive another during the same time yours is received, and the other offer is better, you might not be countered at all and lose out on a good priced home.
Seems like many bank owned homes are being reduced after 30 days, 45 days and 60 days if no offers have been accepted. It's not uncommon to see bank reduce homes by 10-15 and even $20,000. When a priced is reduced, the Seller will then most likely receive an offer to close or at the reduced price. For this reason, even though bank owned homes are on the market longer, the average selling price of these properties are still between 97-98% of list price.
