If you are one of the thousands of foreclosure home buyers all over the country, you probably know the advantages of this type of purchase. Buying a foreclosure typically means you are getting a good deal, often saving thousands on the purchase price, and a foreclosed home can be a lot less than comparable properties in the area. Most sellers are motivated to sell quickly, meaning that the sale can go through faster and with the minimum of negotiating over the price. Many sellers are more than willing to offer closing costs credits, or make essential repairs to the property before selling, so that the buyer doesn’t have to. And the seller is legally obligated to provide clear documentation of any major repairs, issues and the property’s overall condition. Regular bank financing is available for foreclosed homes too, making a foreclosure purchase irresistible to many buyers and investors.
