Buying Distressed Properties
If you’re looking for a great deal in real estate, many potential options are available to you right now. There are a number of strategies for getting a great real estate deal today, and many roads can lead to a tremendous buy.
These options include not only distressed properties like foreclosures, short sales and bank-owned real estate, but also traditionally marketed properties. A piece of property does not have to be “distressed” in order to be a great value.
If you do decide to pursue distressed property, you should be aware that this market can be fraught with complexities and potential potholes and roadblocks. As noted investment real estate expert and broadcaster John Adams wrote in a recent Atlanta Journal-Constitution article, “Because the process of getting to a closing can be an extremely difficult one, it pays to work with an agent who is a short sale specialist.”
I am a Certified Short Sale Specialist and an expert in Atlanta area, East Cobb and Roswell investment properties, so I know this market and how to locate and negotiate distressed properties, thus saving you thousands of dollars. The fact is that the average Realtor just does not have the knowledge and experience to faithfully guide you through the complex process of selecting, evaluating and buying a distressed property.
As an expert who has personally owned many investment properties, I can guide you through the complex process, greatly reducing your risk and stress.
Meet with me for a complimentary, no-obligation consultation before you start looking at properties. During this consultation, we will discuss all of your potential options. Together, we will look at all marketed properties that meet your criteria and find the best values that meet your need.
Send me an email today and I’ll send you my free report: “Your right to a buyer’s agent” and why the right agent can help increase your return on investment.
Fundamentals Still Apply
Keep in mind that, regardless of the type of sale—regular, distressed or otherwise—you can’t disregard the fundamentals of real estate just because the property is priced low. The following time-tested fundamentals of selecting a home still apply:
1. Location: Buy in a stable area where your target property is an average home in a good neighborhood. Buy in an area that’s close to the things you do, an easy commute to work, etc.
2. Condition: You should weigh the cost vs. benefit of a property that needs a lot of work and repairs. Often, for the price of repairs you could have purchased a home in move-in condition.
3. Personal appeal: Buy something you generally like. Yes, you should be flexible and not too strict with your criteria, but don’t talk yourself into a property that just doesn’t “do it” for you.
