Foreclosure Market Report - 2,203,295 foreclosure filings how can you find them?

On January 29th 2008, RealtyTrac®, the #1 online authority for foreclosures & defaulted properties, released their 2007 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report.

In their report, they mention that the 2007 foreclosures are up 75% over 2006 with a total of 2,203,295 foreclosure filings. The report also shows that more than 1 percent of all U.S. households were in some stage of foreclosure during the year, up from 0.58 percent in 2006.

Why, as a real estate buyer, should you care about foreclosures? Opportunity!

Up until now, there were very few methods of finding a foreclosure or Power of Sale (or defaulted property) in Ontario.

I tend to think a little differently than the average Real Estate Agent, which is probably why you remain part of my sphere of influence. For Power of Sale listings and foreclosures, I have created a very detailed section of my website to explain how properties end up in Power of Sale and what it means to you and how you can capitalize on buying these power of sale properties.

Read my power of sale section.

Every great adversity of the homeowner in Power of Sale brings with it a great opportunity to any buyer like you who knows where to find these properties and how to purchase them.


Well, let me explain a little further...

With my POS newsletter, that alert will come to you 5 days per week showing you all the details of these power of sale properties, including the address and asking price! How can you lose?

If you are interested in receiving emails showing these new Power of Sale properties, please sign up to my POS newsletter here.

Homes for Sale

  1. I agree. Foreclosures need a huge amount of work.92 percent of consumers expressed that if they bought a foreclosure, they would be willing to make home improvements after they closed the deal, with 65 percent being willing to invest 20 percent or less of the purchase price. Although stories of foreclosures missing plumbing and every electrical fixture are very memorable, many foreclosed homes need only the (relatively inexpensive) cosmetics that many new homeowners want to customize no matter what kind of home they’re buying: paint, carpet,and many others.
