Dear patch It is not as easy as 10% down and balance within 10days. You may soon find out that the second lien holder brought the home to sale and your bid is subject to paying off the first lien holder. Is the owner in the house?? Have fun getting them out. Then if you pass those hurtles ,along with all the others I do not have time to mention,,,, you know you just purchased the house as-is .Now you go inside and find that termites and a upset owner have trashed the house. Purchasing foreclosed property at sheriff sale can be very risky and time consuming. You should mention some risk in your report and I agree with Mr. Smith, a local paper should not be ousting people whom found themselves down on their luck.

The sheriff sales do need to be mentioned! We need to know our community is not immuned to foreclosures, etc. the economy isn't getting better as quickly as some politicians would like us to believe.

Thank you Mark. To the Rose Tree Fire Co...Would you like your address listed on Media Patch if your house was up for Sheriff Sale? Maybe you are going through a nasty divorce or some other personal problems. So you read the Patch to learn about how bad the economy is? Really?

It is a sad state of affairs when America sells out it own people for a dollar's profit. Salute your flag, but only if it's legal currency. The next Great Depression and they won't even have the stones to call it what it is. We're letting the weakest of us sit on the throne. Time for a reshuffling of the cards. If most are too apathetic, mother nature will take the reins and force a change to the game.
