Often on foreclosed homes the buyer will have to pay for a survey, HOA transfer fees, home warranty.
Also lenders rarely pay for repairs, so even though you can do an inspection in most cases, if you find repair items they are normally at your expense. In a normal equity sale, it is not uncommon for sellers to pay for some repairs.
Also in a normal sale utilities are normally on. On foreclosures it is often the buyer expense to turn them on and perhaps turn them off at the end of the inspection.
So there can be additional costs. These are not necessarily hidden costs, but different as to who pays.
We also find if the buyer's lender does not close on time there can be penalties added per day or per diem for everyday you close late. Often with a normal seller these can be waived.
I often see that foreclosures were neglected for some time before and after the foreclosure. It just depends on the house. This can mean added long term maintenance issues. You can have the same issues in a normal sale , but I just see them more often in a foreclosure sale. Maintenance items like air filters not being changed, yard (foundation) not watered, AC and Heat not serviced, etc.

That can be a loaded question! It is difficult to say but based on my experience, I have encountered several hidden costs that came up in the problem with the home when my buyers were remodeling. An electrical issue and a crack in the slab of the foundation that needed addressing.
Like with any preowned home, you never can account or plan for hidden costs. You just have have to use good judgement on the type of foreclosure you want and make sure you have an exceptional inspector with foreclosure experience.
I'm currently working with several investors purchasing foreclosed homes. I would be happy to assist you too!
