What is a Foreclosure?

Foreclosure results when a homeowner misses successive payments to the lender(usually 3 months) and has no means to catch up with the accumulating debt. This is called distress and almost always leads to foreclosure. Once a lender starts the process it is very difficult to get out. Legal fees and late interest charges pile up quickly and the homeowner finds himself unable to pay off the debt triggering the repossession of the home.

Foreclosure Investment - The Risks and Best Practices

First, the bank will offer no guarantee or warranty on the property. Everything is as-is. You should always do a home inspection to protect yourself from potential and costly defects. Second, the offer may need to be left open for acceptance for a significant time period. Sometimes as little as 24-72 hours. At other times 5 business days or more. Third, it would be advisable to insert a financial condition into the offer in case an appraisal is needed. These are the main points however there are other important distinctions between this process and your standard real estate transaction. You can call or email for more information, clarification, or to have other questions answered. We would be glad to help.
