Making an Offer on that REO property So you've decided that owning an REO Property is the best for you. Purchasing a foreclosed home can mean discounts, but doesn't mean less headaches than buying a regular home. Yes, lenders may be eager to dispose of such properties, and this only means they will find the quickest and easiest way to do this.

Who buys Starter Homes? Only a few short years ago starter homes were scorned by all but the most impoverished home buyer. Why purchase a property in need of improvements when it was possible to buy a sparkling new McMansion with no money down instead? Today all that has changed as investors and first-time buyers, retirees and former homeowners in search of more financial security all compete for affordable dwellings without the high carrying cost. In fact, starter homes are among the most highly sought after types of real estate on the market today. A recent nationwide survey indicates some major changes in the mindset of buyers including a near complete reversal regarding who is purchasing so called "starter homes." Trend #1 - Investors not first-time buyers seeking the deals. Among f...
