What You Need To Know About Real Estate Foreclosures




Source: Michael Contaro - United States

Many people today are losing their properties to lenders by foreclosure. Foreclosure is the legal definition for the process regarding the transfer of a borrower's properties to a lender because the borrower wasn't able to meet the terms of the loan repayment. The property is repossessed by a lender and it is auctioned or sold as a foreclosed property.

This article tries to give some general information regarding real estate foreclosures and other kinds of foreclosures in general. If one is buying foreclosed real property, he might want to spend a few minutes reading this article.

How Properties Are Foreclosed

A foreclosure action is usually initiated when a borrower isn't able to pay up three mortgage payments. A notice of default will be issued by the lender against the real property. If the borrower is unable to pay up the debt, the lender will have the right to foreclose the property and sell it in a trustee sale.

Problems Regarding Buying Foreclosed Real Property

When we talk about something that is as risky as buying a foreclosed property, we might as well lay down the problems that might arise in this venture. Although one can have a great deal out of purchasing real property that is foreclosed, one must have a keen eye on the details.

A simple rule in buying foreclosed real estate property is- "beware." There are not much available schemes for buying foreclosed properties in general, therefore, one must be very liquid and this entails a lot of disposable money. An impulsive buyer should be careful in engaging in auctions and sales of foreclosed properties. The title of the real property should be checked meticulously so as to avoid purchasing a deficient title. One of the more serious concerns that should be considered is that the condition of the property is not known well and usually, an inspection of the real property will not be possible before one purchases it.

Types Of Foreclosures

There are two main types of foreclosures out there, the judicial foreclosure and the non-judicial foreclosure of properties. A judicial foreclosure is a process by which a trustee, a mortgagee or a lien holder requests a sale of the property which is supervised by the court to be able to pay the outstanding balance of a debt. The non-judicial foreclosure action is a process wherein an owner of a real property sells under the power of sale in a trust deed which is in default.

How To Find Foreclosed Properties

If one is really interested in getting his hands on foreclosed real property, he should be keen and act fast because of the stiff competition in the market. In almost all states, notices regarding foreclosed properties can be found in the legal notices pages of the local newspapers. One can also spot a foreclosed property by taking a drive because they have notices in them (just like advertisements) saying that they are up for sale.

One can also go to the webpage of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development where they advertise foreclosed real properties- http://www.hud.gov

There are a lot of foreclosed real properties out there, however, people should be careful and smart in proceeding with purchasing these properties. With the proper research and wise actions, one can actually get a great deal out of buying foreclosed real properties.
