Best way to finance a foreclosure?

Asked by Randy Oliveria, 30238 Tue May 21, 2013

I currently own my own home, (Completely paid off) and was thinking about taking advantage of the current foreclosure market and purchasing an investment home. Would be better/easier to take out a mortgage on the investment property, or my current home?

Hi Randy,
As far as interest rate is concerned, a Primary Residence will be lower than an Investment property. To purchase an Investment property for cash, the seller will require proof of funds in your bank accounts.

If you are looking to purchase a property, working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your mortgage options. To get Pre-Qualified for your purchase, you can submit your request online at

I always recommend having the investment finance the investment. Try not to risk your personal home to buy property. If the investment goes sour, you always know that you will have a roof over your head.

There are quite a few mortgage options out there to buy foreclosure homes. Here is some reference information on the subject: "Home Buying Programs and Assistance."
