Foreclosure Auction

Foreclosure auction refers to selling real estate at public auctions so banks can recover financial losses associated with the foreclosure process. While it is true real estate can be purchased below market value, buyers should take time to understand the process involved and engage in due diligence prior to placing bids on distressed properties.

A foreclosure auction usually takes place at a public location such as county fairgrounds and local courthouses, but can also occur at the property being auctioned. Public auctions offering multiple homes for sale allow buyers the opportunity to scout out potential deals.

Foreclosure Home

When it comes to buying a foreclosure home it is important to understand the pros and cons of this type of real estate transaction. While you might be lucky enough to find a foreclosed house in perfect condition, chances are high you will need to engage in physical labor to get the property back in good condition.

Before beginning your quest for the perfect foreclosure home, it is a good idea to apply for pre-qualified home mortgage financing. Doing so ensures you are qualified to buy the property and provides extra bargaining leverage when it comes time to make an offer.

Foreclosure Homes

Foreclosure homes are houses which borrowers still owe money on but can no longer afford to maintain their payments. Once borrowers become 31 days delinquent on their mortgage note lenders can initiate pre-foreclosure and force the borrower out of their home. Although the process takes several months to complete, foreclosure is a stressful event that will darken your credit history for up to a decade.

Once banks take possession of foreclosure homes they attempt to sell them through foreclosure auctions. More often than not, foreclosed homes require repairs and renovations. It is not uncommon for previous homeowners to trash the place when they are evicted.
