Bank Foreclosures - One of the Easiest Ways to Buy Foreclosures
Source: Will GrantUnited States


Bank foreclosures are homes and properties that are currently owned by various banks or lenders. These banks own them because they are the result of foreclosure actions. The previous owners of the home had fallen behind in their mortgage payments and the bank foreclosed on the home. Bank foreclosures are actually one of the easiest and safest ways to buy foreclosures.

One of the reasons that bank foreclosures are easy to buy is that you get to deal directly with the bank. Banks are interested in selling their foreclosed properties because they are not making money on homes that they own. Some banks advertise their bank foreclosures in the classified ads or market them through a real estate agency. However, their main goal is to sell these homes and finance a mortgage for a new buyer. You can typically buy bank foreclosures 10-15% less than market value. While this is not as good a rate as you can get for other types of foreclosures, bank foreclosures are an easy purchase and make a good option for first time buyers or first time investors.

Another reason bank foreclosures are easy to buy is that there are generally no other judgments or liens on the property to worry about. There are usually no back taxes to be concerned about, and you don't have to feel intimidated or sorry about evicting tenants or the homeowner, either. That can be a difficult thing to do, and buying bank foreclosures saves you those concerns. The bank is also usually very good about letting you access the property and to have various inspections. Bank foreclosures have a lot of advantages.

When buying bank foreclosures, there is nearly always some room for negotiation. You can negotiate a lower down payment, a lower interest rate, a reduction in closing costs and a discounted asking price. However, as the buyer, you need to ask for these things, and be realistic in your expectations. Banks are not going to give their bank foreclosure properties away; they need to make some money on these properties. After all, the business of banks is money. There are flexible lenders out there though, and it makes sense to track them down when you are looking for bank foreclosures. A flexible lender can make all the difference in getting the deal you want on a nice property.

It is not that hard to find good bank foreclosure homes. You can often find information by contacting a realtor. Locating bank foreclosures can also be done with a bank foreclosure listing service such as Foreclosure Data Bank. Listing services offer a lot of foreclosure information in one place which makes them very convenient. Bank foreclosures are just one type of foreclosed properties that are usually listed in Foreclosure Data Bank. When you want a fairly safe and risk-free way to buy a home yet still get a good price, bank foreclosures are one option you should definitely consider.
