Buying At a Foreclosure Auction

Aug 17, 2007
Everyone wants to have a house of his own. Hence, there are a number of people wanting to invest in real estate. But, buying real estate requires a lot of money and most people do not have that kind of money.

In case of insufficient funds for the purpose, the buyer opts for a financial mortgage on the property. But, instead of entering into a binding contract and paying interest for the purchase of a brand new property, it would be advisable to go in for outright purchase of a property that has been foreclosed by a bank, lending company or government. A foreclosure is result of an owner defaulting on the repayment and being unable to pay the loan or mortgage taken on the house. This is a situation faced by many households that are unable to properly manage finances in difficult situations.

The legal process of the foreclosure is long and complicated. Once this is over, the lending agency or bank does not want to delay the recovery of the mortgage or loan proceeds and therefore they go in for an immediate auction to secure the amount due, as per the contract.

If you want to buy a foreclosed house, you must first identify one that is suitable to your budget as well. You need to utilize all the resources that are available, to reach the ideal find. The Internet is the perfect source that can provide you with the relevant information. On the websites of different banks you would find listings of properties that are put up for auction on account of foreclosure. Announcements by the Government about public auctions are also listed. Apart from these websites, there are a number of real estate agents and brokers who can be of great help in locating such properties. You can get detailed particulars about the foreclosed property and the date and venue of the auction from these sources. This could lead you to your dream property.

Many people prefer to look for pre-foreclosed properties that they can buy directly from the owner, without going through the process of an auction. Although it may appear to be an attractive option, one must proceed with caution, since there may legal complications later on. So the safe and sure method would be to opt for properties that have already been foreclosed and duly put up for auction.

It is tempting and profitable to buy foreclosed properties because they can generally be acquired at very low prices. The reason for the low price is that lenders can rarely afford to extend the time for the recovery of the due amount and want the property to be disposed off easily, within the shortest possible time span. On an average, foreclosed houses are sold at prices anywhere between five to fifty percent of their fair market price. Lenders like banks and financial institutions are guided by prevailing norms of the financial markets, which dictate that the money should be put back into circulation without delay.

You can always avail of a good deal in real estate, by purchasing bank foreclosure property. It is a promising venture that is sure to earn you handsome rewards, if you proceed cautiously.
