Overview of Foreclosure Home
What¡¯s foreclosure home? It is a legal process that allows a lender to take possession of a property due to
non-payment of a loan that is secured by that particular property. Foreclosure home is that particular property being taken possession by the lender.
Usually, that house will be sold again in auction or directly through bank. There are cases where owner himself directly looking for buyers to purchase his house. This, we call it pre-foreclosure trading.
Many of us relate the term foreclosure as a not pleasant term. People lose their houses in foreclosure. But in fact, it is just no
more than a business term. Foreclosure home happens because of the house loan contract behind the porperty that tie up the owner. When we had agreement with bank getting a loan to purchase a property, the bank
will lend us the money and in exchange we agreed to pay back with certain interest with the condition the
property will be the collateral to the bank should we failed to meet the notes on the loan.
Whatever the reasons a home being foreclosed, we as home buyers or investors could easily take advantage
over this scenario as those houses are usually being
sold for 20-50% below market value. Please do not take this wrongly as we are not taking advantages on the people who are facing financial stress. Instead we are considered as helping them in settling the problems they are facing. For example if a pre foreclosure owner has successfully sold his or her house before foreclosure, that will not leave any bad mark on thier credit record.
After all, buying foreclosure is a win-win situation for the investors and the owner.
However, getting a great deal needs effort. Doing some easily done research
