Just like a gold mine which yields precious gold after prospecting, exploring, digging and filtering, listings of foreclosures for sale can yield a property that will give you good income for as long as you want.
What is more, the exploring, digging and filtering of listings now is easy and fast because of technology. Just go to a reliable foreclosure listings website, check the options you want, and bingo, the homes within your preferences show up on your screen for your viewing.
Additionally, the prospects for profits from foreclosures now are greater than from foreclosed properties before the housing crisis because of the staggeringly low prices available. Realtor associations and housing analysts say that foreclosure prices are currently 30 to 40 percent below market. There are even markets where price levels have fallen by more than 50 percent from their peak.
If you are experienced in home repairs, you can even buy fixer upper foreclosures for sale at much lower prices. Even if you decide to later contract out the work, you will still make a profit because you bought the property at a bargain.
Another great factor now enticing people to buy foreclosures is the support provided by federal agencies to prospective buyers. Current mortgage rates are still historically low, government loans for repairs are available, and local governments are offering more affordable foreclosures under federal programs.
So as you search your foreclosed property, search also for affordable home ownership programs available in your area. California has resumed its own tax credit program for first time home buyers and Texas has its down payment and mortgage loan assistance program also for first timers. There are also housing nonprofits working with cities and counties to offer affordable foreclosures for qualified buyers.
On the whole, listings of foreclosures for sale can be the start of your freedom from financial or home ownership worries. From these listings, you can buy a great home or investment property within your budget.Immobilienmakler Heidelberg Makler Heidelberg
