Buying A Foreclosure Home

by Kathy from USA

Hi Kate, I am buying a foreclosure home. Is this a good idea? What should I be watching for? Will the bank guarantee the house since the property is bank owned? How do I know I am getting a good deal?


Buying A Foreclosure Home Not A Money Pit

***zz-portrait-left.shtml*** Dear Kathy, Buying a bank owned home can be a great deal. But you need to apply caution. Sadly, these once loved houses are not always in the best shape today.

So my advice is to order an inspection from a licensed home inspector. Without a home inspection, how else can you know if the property will be a dependable long term investment?

Learn here how home inspection can save your future! Otherwise, what appears to be today's good deal might end up as your money pit later down the road.

Find Your Dream House Today

The first step to finding your dream house is to contact a real estate agent and begin forming a dream team of real estate pros who will work on your behalf.

Here's how. Go to Home Buying Dream Team to learn the role of various RE professionals.

A Guide To Oversee Your Home Buying Process

It is also crucial for anyone buying a foreclosure home to have a guide. Someone who will oversee the process. That person is a real estate agent.

Look for a Realtor experienced in handling the bumps found during foreclosure transactions. Doesn't it make sense to have a trained professional as your guide when buying a foreclosure home?

After all, buying a foreclosed home might be a once in a lifetime experience for you. So use an agent who works with foreclosures on a daily basis.
