Making Foreclosures Your Choice

Posted in The Profit January 2017 by Mark Jackson

When looking for an investment opportunity it is always worth considering buying foreclosure properties. You should absolutely take the time to explore all avenues to make this the most profitable. The best thing you can do for yourself is learn about ways to purchase a home any party lost. As they say, “their loss could be your gain”.  REIA Comps can help you navigate the twists and turns of the buying process. 

Unfortunately, homeowners being foreclosed on know that once the bank forecloses, their house with be up for auction. At that point, the property will be sold to the highest bidder. By working with homeowners before their foreclosure is finalized, you can pick up their home at a fraction of the price before it goes public. It's a common practice among real estate investors and brokers. I want you to keep reading and learn how to pick up these deals. 

When buying foreclosure properties, you are taking on a property that has been legally seized, often for the non-payment of the mortgage or other debt secured on the property. Because everyone who is buying foreclosure properties knows that these are great bargains in the real estate market, it can be hard to get your foot in the door and discover where foreclosed properties are and to have the opportunity to buy them.

To join the ranks of the investors making their mark, you need to educate yourself about the process and opportunities buying foreclosure properties presents. There are a number of courses as well as ebooks available that offer clear information on buying and selling foreclosure properties. If you decide that this is the type of investment opportunity that appeals to you I encourage you to grab our Cheap Govt Houses course at www.HUDHomeProfits.com.

Be mindful that foreclosed properties can sometimes be in a poor state of repair.  However, by purchasing foreclosed property, you'll be getting the properties at such a bargain, it will be a profitable investment no matter how bad a home is damaged. In my experience, most foreclosed homes aren't very damaged.  I just want you to know what you could expect when chasing down these deals.

Last, when buying foreclosure properties, it is important that you either have property maintenance skills yourself or that you have a reliable person whom you can call. Most often, foreclosure properties, sell right away, for a profit.  It takes a few coats of paint, some small repairs with minimum work and investment.  Renovations to the property appreciate its value and of course because you've already bought it at a discounted rate, your profit margins can be huge.

It is worth discovering what you can about buying foreclosure properties because of the enormous profits you can gain in a relatively small amount of time.
