Foreclosed houses?

Asked by Seth, Philadelphia, PA Wed Mar 4, 2009

What is the deal on foreclosed houses...I hear that many are available for a bargain. How do you find out about them? I looked around and saw quite a few in different stages. Can agents help with those transactions?

Help the community by answering this question:


Seth, If you are just looking to get information on what's involved in the buying/bidding process for REO/Foreclosures or where you can view them then this might help...

The Banks and Gov. maintain sites where you can view properties they have listed for sale. These sites will also explain the process you must follow to buy/bid. Sites like these....http://www.wamuproperties.com/ .....

This site will provide you with links to the Bank/Gov sites and also has other foreclosure/REO information.

Good luck, Dunes

Hi Seth

You are better off with an agent. I am a Brigantine specialist and know of a few in Brigantine you can check out. Need to know what your looking for. How close to the beach, the purpose of buying the property etc... Call me or drop me an email. I have one coming on the market in the Golf Coure here in Brig. Short sales and foreclosures take a little more patience and paperwork, but worth the time spent.

Best Regards,

Seth there are bargains in foreclosures and pre foreclosures. There are also REO's... ! I have a list of REO's also a list of foreclosed... Bank auctions and Bankruptcy... The MLS provides a great source but it is not the only source. But an agent is where you will find your greatest information and inventory. There are many avenues you could take to find your own but eventually you will find yourself back into an agents arms for some information. So why not work with an agent that will represent you. Past present and futures sales is at the fingertip of a sales pro, let them do a job for you, it costs you nothing!

Hi Seth,

There are many foreclosed (Bank Owned) properties available at below market prices. These are listed in our Multiple Listing Service so an agent can help you find the properties and negotiate for you. I specialize in working with bank owned properties for home buyers and investors and would be happy to talk with you or meet with you do discuss your goals. My phone number is 609-484-9890 ext. 132 or send me a message.

Hello Seth,

Many foreclosures are on the market with realtors and can be searched via the multiple listing service. I have access to that information because I am a member of the Atlantic County MLS system and could email you the list and continue to update you as new foreclosed properties become available. Just contact me via my contact information.

Yes, an agent SHOULD help you with this type of transaction. In today's climate there is no benefit to trying to do it yourself. The blog below may help you.
