Introduction: Buying a House!
These are steps from people I have been asking around for a year to get a house for cheap but I really don’t know if it’s legal it just more of a consolidation of notes when looking and buying a house/land.

Step 2: How Much Money Can You Afford?

Step 3: Find Foreclosed Property
Find a government runs foreclosed auctions such as here in
Step 4: Check Value of Surrounding Property
You need to know how much the surrounding property is to see what your maximum offer should be. Example The owner my owe more money then what the property is worthCheck the Zillow.com site for the Real Estate value of surrounding property.
Step 5: Offer to Pay Off Owner's Loan From the Bank for the House/land.
this is what saves you money since the people living at the house are losing it anyway. Talk to the person living at the house to see if they would be willing to sell for what's left on there loan(house loan).
(Optional) Offer them extra for them personally at the closing date. This is what saves you money since the people living at the house are losing it anyway
