Buying Foreclosed Property
The process of buying foreclosed property is more complex than a regular real estate transaction. There are certain risks associated with buying real estate that has been foreclosed, including:
- Paying cash – A buyer of foreclosed property is expected to pay for the property with cash or cashier’s check.
- Paying immediately – The buyer is expected to pay for the property the day of the trustee sale.
- Buying without seeing – In most cases, the buyer does not have a chance to inspect or even see the property before purchasing it.
Despite the risks, consumers can find amazing deals in foreclosed property. The key is having solid legal advice behind every decision. By researching, learning about the foreclosure process, and consulting a real estate lawyer, buyers are better equipped to make solid decisions about buying REO (real estate owned or bank-owned) properties.
