What is a Foreclosure Home? 

A foreclosure home is any house, condo or manufactured home whose original owner defaulted on his mortgage; resulting in his lender repossessing the home. The lender then reserves the right to sell the foreclosed home to another buyer. Savvy homebuyers can sometimes purchase foreclosed homes from the bank at a discount


Flagstaff Real Estate: Foreclosure Marketing


Not all foreclosure homes make it onto the open market. Before a bank markets foreclosure properties through a real estate agency, it attempts to sell foreclosed homes at auction. A bank may ask any price for a home, but often banks will price a foreclosed property at the amount the former homeowner owed on her defaulted mortgage. If no one at the auction bids an acceptable amount for the home, the bank will retain ownership of the property and place it on the open market.

Types of Foreclosures


If the original homeowner obtained a conventional mortgage on the property, the bank is responsible for repossessing and marketing the foreclosure home. If, however, the original homeowners loan was government-insured, such as an FHA or VA loan, the government department that insured the loan is responsible for marketing the property. Government foreclosures sometimes carry special incentives for buyers. For example, the Veteran’s Today Foreign Affairs Journal states that you dont have to be a veteran to qualify for vendee financing on VA foreclosures from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Benefits of Buying Foreclosures 

Lenders have an interest in recouping their losses, but don't want foreclosed homes to sit on the market or in their accounting ledgers. Because of this, interested buyers can sometimes purchase foreclosure homes for less than fair market value. Doing so gives the homebuyer instant equity and helps him realize a greater profit should he choose to sell the home in the future.
