Las Vegas Foreclosure - Getting a Great Real Estate Deal

By: IC

The real estate market has been known to be the best kind of investment someone can initiate, compared to other forms of investments which are highly risky such as currency exchange and stock trading, real estate or the housing market tends to deliver better revenues at a much steady pace.

As we all know the US is currently going through a very difficult economic transition, some people may call it recession, however we can't be completely sure if we are in one due to the fact that the definition of such term is not exact, in other words it is quite vague; in reality the effect hearing this word over and over by other people is what ultimately drives a nation into such economic chaos! Taking that in consideration many people who did not originally qualify for loans were given one and when the time for interest changes came, they were unprepared and couldn't handle the financial stretch, therefore their properties were foreclosed, due to this housing sector many may consider using, and even over-using, the "R" word.

There are many reasons for a property to go on foreclosure but when it does a great opportunity is available for those who are smart investors. Due to the financial crunch banks have opted to accept "discounted payoffs" in order to recover some of their loses and not close the books with such huge revenue discrepancies. Just like all of us, banks rely on cash flow to keep their operations running, so a piece of property which is placed on the "current" market at a high price will most likely not sell due to the fact that no one is willing to pay such a high price, so they have no other option but to discount it until they find an equilibrium price according to current market conditions.

Taking in consideration this last thought, where some people see fear and despair, savvy investors see chance, they see opportunity and great revenues. Las Vegas is known to be a real estate powerhouse, in other words the rate at which this city is growing is incredible so the more the downtown expands the higher the value of nearby houses will be, this is not a speculation, it is a fact. Some casino owners have even opted to move away from the strip to "near by areas" which are usually a few blocks away from the strip, in order to build or re-build their gambling-fueled ventures. A great example is the "Palms" this casino is not located exactly at Vegas strip but non the less, its has great fame and draws a lot of attention, another example is the famous "Rio" which is some blocks away from the main action but it still grabs everyone's attention; these super casinos which are built away from the strip tend to increase the value of any piece of property which is built near by, hence the brilliant value of Las Vegas real estate market.

Currently, interest rates have been brought down to an all-time-low, from the high 7-10% interest rates to 5% and the best part is that it will stay that way for a long time in order to alleviate the great housing deficit, these are all fixed rate loans so keep that in mind. Also, savvy investors know that during this time of financial need, banks are practically giving these properties away in order to get their cash flow going and keep their balance sheets from scaring stock holders so many will even provide no payments for up to 6 months, just so that the property can be sold, again this is not promotional/sales speech, these are the facts and because bad loans (no doc, etc) have been removed, investors know that the new "stated" loan requirements will take their interest rate related risks away. Taking all of these facts in consideration, property foreclosures in Las Vegas represent a great opportunity for buyers and and investors alike.
