I have been fortunate to get some good deals for my clients on foreclosures before, but that is just a coincidence. I have seen many foreclosures that are in poor condition that would make no sense getting into. Many foreclosures have bashed walls, and are pretty badly abused. Since you seem interested, I think you should check out a couple of them so you know firsthand what they are all about.
Are you a first-time home buyer? Call or email if you have any questions.
Please see my reply to your other inquiry ... it should explain things in a bit of detail.
You are taking a chance buying a foreclosure ... I don't recommend them to anyone other than experienced buyers with money in the bank. If you're looking for the deal of a lifetime, a foreclosure isn't necessarily the way to go ... in fact, it could wind up costing you more, once you've invested in the repairs and updates (they are sold "as-is, where-is").
I'd really like to discuss your wants and needs with you. Please get in touch, so that we may begin the process of finding the home that works best for you. I look forward to your reply.
Please let me know if I can help
