Found a Home we love....funny story

Yesterday we found a home that we really love.  My husband had his eye on this home for a while and once we got our preapproval, we knew we wanted to see it.  It is a 4bed/4bath single home with a fully finished basement and two car garage.  It's is in a great community in PA and listed at $207.9k because it's in forclosure.  The funny part of the story is that we went to see the home on Friday and couldn't get in because the lock box code was incorrect.  My realtor got the updated info and took us yesterday and when we arrived, the for sale sign was thrown into the yard and the neighbors trash cans were placed in front of the house.  Both homes on either side of the home we are interested in are for sale and listed at $258k and $235k.  They must have seen us on Friday and realized that someone is interested in buying the forclosure.  If that house sells for $207k or less, they will have to lower their asking prices....oh well...We are waiting to hear back from our loan officer because the taxes in this area are so high, we want to offer what we know we can afford.
