California Foreclosure Homes Inventory Growing

By: philip smith

Getting your hands on good real estate in California for a good value these days is difficult. Although prices are low due to a sluggish market and consequently low property values, the uncertain future of the market makes it really hard to invest in anything that isn't a sure bet. But while surefire deals may be hard to find on the open market, in the world of California foreclosure homes there are some great opportunities for valuable investment.

Buying California foreclosure homes differs somewhat from buying on the open market through an agent, but anyone can learn the process and ultimately, pay much less for a home than you ever would through an agent. Since California foreclosure homes are sold as repossessions, the lenders in charge of them often undersell properties simply for enough to recover the debt they are owed. This translates to savings that often lie anywhere from 10 to 50% below the market value of the property. Buying for such low prices means more than a discount however. In today's market, it means instant equity, in a market where appreciation and investment value are virtually non existent.

California foreclosure homes are currently at incredible highs as well. With the highest inventory in the country, California has more than 55,000 properties currently in the foreclosure market. Buyers in all locations are having no trouble finding apartments, houses and commercial properties for extremely low prices. The flooded market is bringing down auction and sale prices across the board.
