Did you know you can buy property for less than $100K in San Diego? And did you know you can borrow money not just from banks but from also private money to help you buy a spot?

We do things a little different from the typical realtor, and help you preserve your money, not help you spend it.
Itâ€™s commonly assumed that any REO must be a bargain and an opportunity for easy money. This simply isnâ€™t true. You have to be very careful about buying a REO if your intent is to make money off of it. While itâ€™s true that the bank is typically anxious to sell it quickly, they are also strongly motivated to get as much as they can for it. When considering the value of a REO, you need to look closely at comparable sales in the neighborhood and be sure to take into account the time and cost of any repairs or remodeling needed to prepare the house for resale. The bargains with money making potential exist, and many people do very well buying foreclosures. But there are also many REOâ€™s that are not good buys and not likely to turn a profit.
I hope this answer helps in your decision. You can contact me if you have further questions.
Buying foreclosures are made out to be way to confusing and so much of it has to do with agent not returning phone calls and leaving buyers and their buyers agent in the dark. Find a good agent, get a good loan and know what you can qualify for before you start to look.

The most important thing is to get pre-approved for a loan.
Most of the foreclosed homes are bargains.
You will need a good real estate professional to negotiate a great price for you.

You have gotten good advice getting a lender to approve you for a loan and in using a Realtor to find the property. I would suggest that you have your Realtor find the bank owned listings that have been listed the longest. You should be able to bargain better on them, however, get a home inspection done and have a contractor give you estimates of needed/desired repairs. Once you are in escrow and have had an inspection done, you may be able to get some concessions from the bank/seller. I would also consider asking the seller to pay for points to buy down your mortgage rate (one point =about 1/4% less of an interest rate and four points wouuld be about 1% less). That could help you get an approval even with some credit dings. You can find some great buyer tips at our site shown below.
Hi Sack ,
I would suggest you start by interviewing at least 3 full time realtors in your community that Work with foreclosed properties listing them and selling them.. The agent will help you with the process of qualifying and purchasing foreclosed properties. An agent must be knowledgeable about the Market conditions . As an agent I would never allow my clients to overpay for any propertiesâ€¦.. So comparative market analysis is important and a clear understanding of the process of purchasing a foreclosed property is very important.
Hope this helps.

Your first step is to speak a loan consultant to determine your purchasing power. They will work with you and tell you based upon your personal situation what kind of loan you will qualify for. After that then sit down with your real estate agent, if you don't have one, find one. Discuss your options to see what you can afford to buy. House vs Condo, area(s), size, minimum needs, etc...
If you don't have a loan consultant, I would recommend a lender I have done business with for 20 years. She will take the time to discuss all the details with you. Her name is Lori Goldman, 619-885-0093. If you don't have an agent, you can give me a call and or visit my website.
Good Luck, there are lots of options out there.
there are tons of bargains out there! One major obstacle however will be your bankruptcy. How long ago was it actually discharged? What type of bankruptcy was it? All this makes a difference.
The savings will help you qualify for sure- you could use it towards a downpayment, but I'd like to see you keep some for a rainy day rather than put it all down on the house.
I have the abilility to legally remove bankruptcies from your credit- it's not cheap, but the attorney I work with is doing some amazing things right now.
If you need an advisor, please don't hesitate to get a hold of me.
