Foreclosure Property

An excess of foreclosure property could be the yellow brick road to the pot of gold for savvy real estate investors. A recent report published at CNNMoney.com deems investors who sweep in to purchase distressed properties as 'vulture investors', but in reality these individuals have learned how to capitalize on a downturned market.

Foreclosure property can consist of single- or multi-family residences, commercial real estate, or raw land. Previously, investors purchased foreclosure real estate primarily for the purpose of house flipping. Today, these properties are being purchased as rental homes to accommodate the millions of homeowners who lost their home to foreclosure and incapable of qualifying for mortgage loan.

Bank Owned Property

Bank owned property refers to foreclosure real estate that has been returned to the lender. When homes fall into foreclosure they are placed for sale through public auctions. If no one bids on the property it is given back to the bank. At this stage, the property is referred to as real estate owned, or REO, property.

Bank owned property can consist of houses, condos, manufactured homes, mobile homes, commercial properties or raw land. REO properties are sold through each lender's loss mitigation department. Many lenders present bank owned real estate via their company website. Others retain the services of a realtor who specializes in distressed properties.

Wholesaling for Quick Cash

Wholesaling for quick cash is a relatively risk-free real estate investment strategy. There are four steps to wholesaling real estate. The first step requires locating property owners who are highly motivated to sell their real estate. Step two involves negotiating the purchase price. Step three involves placing the property under contract. Step four requires locating a real estate rehabber or investor to purchase the contract.

In essence, wholesaling for quick cash is a form of house flipping. The primary difference is when buyers purchase real estate for wholesaling purposes they do not have to rehab the property. Instead, real estate is purchased significantly under market value and sold to a property rehabber.
