This blog entry will cover the initial points I try to cover when I initially consult with a new first time homebuyer interested in a foreclo...

Going on my 3rd year of listing and selling REO properties the one thing that never changes are people (real estate professionals or buyers) stealing the key and or lockbox for well-priced HOT properties.

Author Bio:I began my real estate career at Charles Rutenberg Realty out of Naperville, IL as a part time agent while I finished up my Bachelors Degree in Business Management and worked as a full time associate engineer at Borgwarner Automotive in Bellwood, IL to help pay for school. After I graduated college in 2005, I left Borgwarner to focus solely on Real Estate. I am now a full time agent at Realty Executives Ambassador out of Orland Park, IL working under Broker/Owner Robert Shutay. I specialize in helping first time home buyers and new investors in the purchase of foreclosed or distressed properties. While I still find it fun and rewarding to help a client in the traditional purchase of a home I love the added challenge of closing a foreclosure for well under market value. Please feel free to contact me any time for a counseling session about purchasing foreclosed or distressed properties.
