The Pros And Cons To Buying Foreclosed Properties




Source: Tim Lee - United States

Auction buying of foreclosed properties is the most profitable and common way to make a fortune in the real estate business. If you do not know how to buy a foreclosed property, it could turn out to be the easiest ways to lose a fortune. Most disasters occur due to over bidding on the properties without properly assessing the real market value and fix up costs of the property under the hammer. Research can make or break the fortune one could make on a foreclosed property.

Auctions of foreclosed properties are held at public auctions that are conducted under the supervision of the county or state court where the property is situated. This works towards the advantage of the buyer since the transfer of title is immediately executed upon winning the bid. In most cases the winning bidder is the lender who has requested foreclosure of the property in the first place.

The Advantages

The main advantage of buying a foreclosed property through auctions is the profitability, the difference between the highly discounted price and the estimated value you can sell it. Normal foreclosure property auctions have a six week notice enabling the interested buyers to inspect the property and assess its total cost including fix ups and liens and other issues and research the market price at which it can be disposed of. It is always important to remember that bidding at a foreclosed property auction need not be competitive but based on your own assessment.

The Disadvantages

The main disadvantage in buying a foreclosed property from a court auction is that it required a lot of capital investment. The payment period is very short and one should be read even before bidding to successfully buy a foreclosed property. Another major disadvantage would be the transfer of title that involves a great risk. If your research is not correct or incomplete it could lead to major losses in the process of buying and selling foreclosed property. Higher the risk, higher the gain, therefore one should be doubly careful and do significant research before bidding on an interesting property.

Buying a foreclosed property is a science in itself and involves a lot of learning. Financially smart businesspersons have been known to have burnt their fingers buying and selling foreclosed properties. If one is careful, a fortune can be made. But, if one a little careless, they could be bankrupt in a matter of weeks.
