Buying Foreclosures

July 17, 2009

Harris Interactive recently conducted a study in which it was determined that 55 percent of people surveyed identified them selves as likely to purchase a foreclosed property. Back in November of 2008, the same survey indicated that only 47 percent were likely to purchase a foreclosed property. People currently renting (68%) were among the most likely to buy a foreclosed property. Here in the Sarasota / Bradenton real estate market we are experiencing the effects of this increased interest in foreclosure properties which make up a high percentage of the closed transactions.   There are some excellent opportunities among the foreclosures in our market. However, not all foreclosure are good deals because in some cases the costs associated with repairs and upgrades may be too high. The best deals may newly constructed homes that were purchased by out of town investors at the end of the boom. In many cases these foreclosed properties have never been lived in and are in excellent condition. If you are interested in such properties, give me a call at 941-650-4626.
