What happens to real estate when it is foreclosed?

I hear you can get some good deals but I don't know how.

When a property is foreclosed on, the lender will take ownership of the property to compensate for the lack of payments from the borrower. The lender will then sell the property to recover at least some of the money it lost. This means good prices for potential buyers.

Foreclosed Real Estate What happens to foreclosed properties varies greatly from state to state. In all states, the property is now owned by the mortgage company. Most of the time is it then put up for sale by a realtor or an auction.

Ownership is assumed by the lien holder. Depending on the condition of the property and the local market, the house may be sold at auction or by conventional means.

The bank takes possession of the property. They evict the current owner and remove their belongings. Then they hold a foreclosure sale, often on the courthouse steps, selling the property to the highest bidder.

Foreclosed homes are normally sold via "Quitclaim Deed," as opposed to the normal "Warranty Deed." A Quitclaim Deed is much less reliable, and it is possible for the previous owner's to attempt to get the home back.

You must contact the real estate agent that is selling the foreclosed lot. Take a look at the lot good. The price is usually already reduced when you go look at the land. You will however, be able to haggle the price down a couple thousand depending on the conidition.
