Beach Front Foreclosure: How to Buy One in Today's Competitive Market

Aug 18, 2007
It seems like everyone is looking for a great deal in real estate and it is well known that foreclosures make great deals. No matter whether you are looking for an investment property, a vacation home or your dream home, buying foreclosed properties can be an ideal way to purchase more property for less cash. But the foreclosure market is tight and there is a lot of competition for all types of properties and especially for beach front foreclosure property.

Beach front foreclosure opportunities are snatched up quickly by savvy investors looking to make a profit by reselling the foreclosures as highly valued homes and vacation properties. Investors stay up late into the night scouring listings, records, and newspapers in their quest for the ideal property. In many cases, they even have a team of researchers that work to find foreclosure properties for them. All of this means that properties go fast with some of them only being available for days or even hours. If you want to find a beach front foreclosure in this competitive market, you need to do your research, pay attention, and move fast.

The first thing that you need to do before you can buy a beach front foreclosure is to find a property that suits your needs. Again, investors are all over beach front properties so you will need to work harder than they do if you want to buy property. Reading published foreclosure listings rarely works because the homes listed have been in foreclosure for days or weeks. In most cases, finding a property means contacting the courthouse regularly to get all of the latest foreclosure information.

Do not wait to buy a beach front foreclosure at auction. Many times there will be multiple bidders and the price will be driven higher than it would have been if the property had sold during the pre-foreclosure phase. This is the phase during which the homeowner still has control of the property and has only received notification of foreclosure. Often, you can work directly with the homeowner to buy the property at a bargain price to avoid foreclosure.

Remember, there will be many investors also trying to do the same thing so you have to sell yourself. This is the only time that the size of your bid or bank roll does not in itself guarantee you the beach front foreclosure. See what you can do to take care of property owner's needs. Be compassionate, be understanding, be helpful; this will set you apart from the corporate investor types.

Be sure to explain to the homeowner what you want to do with the beach front foreclosure. They may be more likely to sell to someone who wants to use the property as a home rather than sell it to a corporation who wants to rent it out as a vacation property.

Buying a beach front foreclosure in today's competitive real estate market is very tricky. You need to be one step ahead of the competition at all times and that means that it takes a lot of hard work to find the property you want.
