AUSTIN REAL ESTATE: Search for Foreclosures in Austin

AUSTIN REAL ESTATE: Search for Foreclosures in Austin

Would you or someone you like to purchase a home at a reduced price? Are you willing to do some repairs or updates on a home so you can buy a house below market value? Now it is a bit easier to find homes that may be a great value. On my AUSTIN AREA HOME SEARCH system, there is now a new feature that allows you to SEARCH FOR FORECLOSURES FOR SALE IN AUSTIN.

You can select all of your criteria just like a regular home search and select the "foreclosures" button next to the "active listings" button. This will find all of the available foreclosed homes that are listed for sale in the Austin MLS. The results will include any available photos and details of each house.

Every foreclosure is not necessarily a good deal. Banks that foreclose on properties are usually located out of the area work with local REALTORS and appraisers to try to assess the current market value of the home and to give advice on any repairs that can be made to help sell the home in about 60-90 days. Just like dealing with sellers of a home, some REALTORS will over price a home even when it is a foreclosure. The process is slightly more difficult and may take a bit longer so you want to be working with a professional to make sure you are getting a GREAT DEAL!

If you are able to find a great deal on a foreclosed house in the Austin area and you can take advantage of the $8000 FIRST TIME HOME BUYER TAX CREDIT, it is a decision that you will look back on as the greatest choice you have ever made. It is a unique time in AUSTIN REAL ESTATE that you are able to find a deal AND get money back from the government.

If you are interested in buying a foreclosure, go ahead and search on my site. If you have any questions about the process or if you would like to see any of these homes in person, please contact me today by email or call (512)638-5885.
