Las Vegas: Foreclosure on the Rise

Oct 13, 2007
Many real estate areas that experienced recent booms are now experiencing a different type of market. Prices that were once soaring and making investors a lot of money have now evened out and, in some places, started to fall. This has led to the increase of foreclosure claims as investors who invested too late in the game were unable to sell their property quick enough to make a profit before they saw the value of their investment property drop. It is for this reason that the Las Vegas foreclosure rate has risen over the past couple of years.

Unfortunately, foreclosure can happen to even the smartest investor if the market changes abruptly and dramatically. Buying investment properties in booming areas is not cheap, but the reward is great if property values continue to rise. What happens, though, if values stagnate or drop? Most investors would advise holding onto the property until the market turns around again and trying to cut some of your losses by either living in the home or renting it out. In some cases, though, this becomes financially impossible and Las Vegas foreclosure can occur.

One of the reasons why it is so hard to hold onto a property after the market has topped out is that the mortgage for the property may end up being substantially more than what the home is worth in the current market. This can make it extremely difficult to rent or lease the home for an amount that would cover the mortgage payment, insurance payment, and other fees. Sadly, many investors see Las Vegas foreclosure as their only way out of a situation that has taken a turn for the worse.

But what is one investor's misfortune can become the investment success of another. The Las Vegas foreclosure market is teeming with great properties that could be the perfect investment opportunity. Sometimes, foreclosed properties can be purchased for as much as 50 percent less than their current market value. This is what makes foreclosure investing such a wise strategy. And with so many properties available, the Las Vegas market is not as competitive when it comes to purchasing foreclosures as other areas.

A less competitive market means that there is a greater opportunity to find a Las Vegas foreclosure significantly under value. This allows investors to pay bottom dollar for properties and hold onto them until real estate prices go up or resell the properties quickly for a fast profit.

The biggest real estate savings can be found at auction. Acquiring properties at auction can be very tough in competitive markets because there are numerous investors bidding on a handful of properties. In the Las Vegas market, though, there are a lot of opportunities for an investor to find and place the winning bid on a foreclosed property. And this is what makes buying a Las Vegas foreclosure such an attractive option for many investors no matter whether they are just starting out or if they have been successfully investing for years.
