Detroit Bank Foreclosures

By: philip smith

With the economy in a downturn and Americans becoming increasingly more worried about just how far their dollars will go in the coming years, it makes sense that many would think twice before buying a new home. It seems like all we ever hear about is the housing market plunge, low property values and the impending effects it will have on the possible recession we are facing. However, out of this mess, one of the best opportunities for would be homebuyers has ironically arisen, and that's Detroit bank foreclosures.

Detroit bank foreclosures aren't traditional types of real estate. They're sold off by bank lenders looking to collect on an unpaid debt owed by a previous homeowner. However, most of these properties for far less through these foreclosure sales than they ever would at open market. In fact, most buyers end up savings anywhere from10 to 50% on Detroit bank foreclosures, simply because they're sold at auction.

And the market for Detroit bank foreclosures is simply booming. Michigan was the states hardest hit by the nationwide surge in foreclosures last year, and Detroit made up for a huge portion of the overall foreclosure inventory. The first month of the year saw an immediate surge, as from December to January, the number of foreclosures in the metro Detroit area grew 40%.

With this trend expected to continue well into 2008, local buyers would be wise to start looking into buying Detroit bank foreclosures if they're considering buying new homes, as they may be the only sure bet for value the market has right now. Finding listings with a service such as BankForeclosureSale.com is an excellent place to start, as they provide quality, updated listings as well as advice for buyers on finding the right deals and best values.
