- Auctions & Foreclosures
  Recent statistics showing that a record 1.2 percent of all mortgages are in foreclosure.  For real estate speculators, distressed properties (a home seized by the lender when the borrower failed to make mortgage payments), and fixer-uppers in a transitioning neighborhood present another potential goldmine.  Foreclosed properties, for example, can often be had for a bargain since banks need to move them fast.  But they're also usually in a state of distress.  They are most lucrative as an investment when you have the skills to fix up the place yourself.

Several federal agencies have properties to sell, including property tax sales properties.  Check them out - one might be just what you're looking for!  Visit the individual agency's website for helpful tools and information.  If you are interested in buying government or mortgage foreclosure properties, please contact me for more information.
