The Delaware Foreclosure Investor program is designed to provide information to qualified buyers. Remember only a few foreclosure real estate auction transactions result in actual sales The entity filing the foreclosure action, such as a bank, homeowners Association, govt. branch, or credit union usually buy the property back and still can hold the debtor liable for the difference when and if it sells. These Properties are then put on the market with a real estate broker. They are Foreclosed!
My monthly research is on homes prior to foreclosure that are coming up to foreclosure 3-8 weeks ahead of auction.
I tailor your search by approx. sale price, area and more !
- Is the real estate a house, condo, vacant lot, and whats is the anticipated payoff or possible sale price????
- * By using some of theses parameters, I narrow down your search .
- * If needed provide names of Lending Agencies familiar with Financing Foreclosures.
- *Once we attain a prospective property I gather as much information as possible. Is the Real Estate of Value, can it be financed, how much more investment injection is required, is it in a flood zone etc...
- * If you decide to further pursue we order a LOCAL title search by a local closing Attorney familiar with area.This is where you put your first out of pocket expense.
