Many home buyers are beginning to see the wisdom in considering a foreclosed property especially when they stop to consider that with just a little effort the purchased home is almost invariably in a huge positive equity situation. Also, the Fannie Mae 15 day "First Look" period gives potential home owners a leg up on the competition by keeping no occupant real estate investors from making an offer for the two week time span to allow homeowners the first shot at these homes.
The condition of foreclosed properties varies, conventional wisdom along with experience says that most foreclosed properties may need some TLC but this is not always the case, especially among condos that were second homes in the Myrtle Beach area. Foreclosures are generally sold as is so you definitely want to have a thorough home inspection so you aren’t surprised later. Another positive point for buyers that need a fast closing is that foreclosures are mostly vacant so the new owner can move in much quicker than in many other home purchase scenarios.
Even though the foreclosure market has historically been the domain of professional real estate investors, anyone can take advantage of these tremendous bargains as long as you keep a few things in mind. First off, you want to be sure that you get preapproved so that when you find a property there are no delays plus it can be used as a bargaining tool when you can show the seller you already have preapproved financing.
