Bank owned homes are still a big draw to the first time home buyer and the vacation home buyer, and why not the prices are great. We are seeing a few of the agents listing bank owned homes are not correctly marking their listings as bank owned, so it is difficult to provide the list I generally provide.
As a buyer you need to know that there are several other homes in La Pine that may be of interest to you.
Instead of focusing on bank owned properties, I would encourage you to find your price range that suits your needs. Many of the sellers have been able to lower their price to compete with the bank, these homes often time have been and are still loved. If you have been in any of the bank owned properties you know that some of them have been lived in pretty hard and will require a lot of elbow grease or repairs to make them livable again.
When you purchase a home that is owner occupied the pride of ownership is generally visible. Not to mention that when you are dealing with an owner vs a bank you have more power for repairs and negotiation.
