Purchasing a foreclosure home provides a buyer with a great opportunity to not just find the home of their dreams, but to reap several additional rewards. Like what, you may ask? First and foremost is the idea of saving money. Given the right circumstances and foreclosure opportunity, you can easily find yourself paying anywhere from 10 to 20 percent less than the property's current marketing value. That can add up to several thousands of dollars in savings. Add a little TLC in the form of minor repairs and improvements, and you could increase the propertys value and your future profit margin when the time comes to sell. Finally, buying a foreclosure home often provides you with a little more room to negotiate with the seller at the time of sale. For instance, a bank looking to sell one of its foreclosure homes may be more than receptive to entertaining your request for a below-market rate mortgage, no or low closing costs and/or additional monies for needed repairs and improvements.
REO foreclosures provide buyers with a great starting point in their search for a home or investment property. You may even be able to start reaping the rewards of foreclosure buying with one of these foreclosure homes currently up for auction. An added bonus is that they all start out at under $50,000.
