Homes Auction - Find Your Dream Home For Less
If you're looking for a great deal on real estate, a home auction may very well be just what you need. You'll find there are lots of good homes on the market that are being auctioned off for one reason or another. Finding these auctions takes a bit of research, but you should also be aware of some of the problems that can be associated with homes auctions. There's a lot of talk about homes auction in which the house and property are sold for taxes. Take time to learn about the laws related to this practice. It may be that you get a limited deed to the property and that the owner still has a specific amount of time to reclaim the property. That means that you may put money into the house and land, only to have the previous owner pay what was owed and void your claim. This isn't always the case, but take time to learn what rules and laws will apply before you make a bid. There is also a lot of talk about government homes auctions. The stories are that you can buy a house for as little as one dollar. This is usually going to be a front for a company that seeks to get you to register with them as a potential bidder. This will typically include a sizable registration fee and you'll find few (if any) real bargains listed among the properties they have for sale. And remember that most government funded properties - HUD and similar programs - require you to meet their criteria before you qualify for the program. Estate auctions are often a good place to find a great deal. These are not traditional homes auctions because there is usually only one house and one piece of property for sale. Usually, the majority of bidders who attend are interested in furnishing and the smaller items so you may have little competition. Take time to visit the house ahead of time, carefully looking it over for defects and items that will need to be fixed. Even if you get it at a good price, this may not be the best deal in town.
