This saves me a lot of time and effort. I don’t have to search the internet for hours looking at different Realtors websites sifting through houses that are not foreclosures or don’t fit what I am searching for.

Even many Realtors have started to use their website to find the absolute BEST deal for their clients! If a real estate professional trusts www.foreclosuresearch.ca, then I know I made the right decision.

Other options for finding foreclosed apartments in Lillooet is to speak to your local bank to see if they are carrying properties in their portfolio or to contact a local Realtor that concentrates in foreclosure listings. Many Realtors will list which ever property they can get their hands on but they may not be well versed in the foreclosure purchasing process so you need to be informed before going in.

How to buy a foreclosed house with bad credit

Let me start off by saying that buying a foreclosed house in Lillooet with bad credit is feasible!

To begin with, you have the option to buy a house for cash at a real estate auction. Your credit doesn’t play a factor at all because you are not taking out a loan. Not everyone has this kind of money lying around though so lets take into account other options.

Research federal home buying programs. There are many programs in the market again to support those with low salaries or poor credit to buy properties.

Search for buildings in your area and look for loans with low down payments. Save up money for your down payment but expect to pay a moderately higher interest rate as a result of your lower credit score. You should be able to refinance in a couple of years after making on time payments to obtain a lower rate.

How you can buy a foreclosed condo in Lillooet, BC

The very first step is to get pre approved for a mortgage through a bank of your choosing or scrape together enough money to buy a house through an auction for all cash.

Next, find condos in Lillooet, BC that you are interest in. I use Foreclosuresearch.ca for this.

Find a Realtor that specializes in Lillooet foreclosures and will be able to help you through the method of buying.

If you have questions about the process, I would consider consulting with a real estate or foreclosure attorney before purchasing to make sure you understand the process and the ramifications of purchasing foreclosed properties.

One thing that needs to be considered before you buy is that some foreclosure properties are not open to having a home inspection done before buying and/or the bank that owns the property may not agree to make any repairs. This could end up costing you some money to make the repairs after buying. This is the only problem in my opinion when buying foreclosed homes

How long does it take to buy a Lillooet foreclosure or distress sale?

This hinges on how you are buying the property. Properties that are obtained in cash at an auction are turned over within a week or two maximum depending upon how much time it takes your funds to transfer to the bank and the title to be completed. Actually, I have had properties transfer to me within three days.

If you are buying a property through a mortgage then the closing process takes a small bit longer. My experience has been about thirty days to closing, which is pretty customary when purchasing a property.
Are there reasons not to buy a bank foreclosure?

Foreclosed houses are usually sold “as is,” meaning the bank is not willing to make any repairs before selling the property. This means that any repairs could fall back upon the new owner to fix. Sometimes the repairs are small-scale and other times they are significant.

Often a foreclosed property has sat uninhabited for some time so maintenance has been shruged off and will need to be dealt with immediately.

Sometimes, just because the title has transferred to a new owner doesn’t mean that all difficulties have gone away. This is the significance of having a title search done prior to buying a property since liens or lawsuits could be attached to the property and you could inherit them without understanding it.

How to negotiate for bank owned homes.

Patience is key here! The bank is in business to make money so they will be trying to get the greatest price for the house that they can.

Dealing with banks is an automated process and usually handled by computer systems and not actual people. This can be annoying for you the buyer but it is what it is. Eventually if you are persistent the bank will very likely cave if they have no other offers because they recognize they need to transfer the property quickly.

Are bank owned homes good or bad? This all depends upon your goals and the risk level that you are willing to accept. If you are willing and eager to take on the potential repairs yourself and not rely upon the bank to pay for them then this is a good deal! Just remember to do your prep work on foreclosures and on your house before purchasing to know clearly what you are getting into.
