Dallas Bank Foreclosures on the Rise

By: philip smith

As more and more buyers turn to alternate means of investment to find savings on real estate, Dallas bank foreclosures have emerged as one of the most valuable commodities in the housing market. While many people are turned off from buying homes these days due to the sluggish economy and low property values, these homes offer a chance for buyers to win properties at less than their market value, which is generating buzz among many first time buyers and seasoned investors.

Dallas bank foreclosures aren't typical types of real estate, but their potential for value is clear. Sold off by lending banks as a means of collecting outstanding debts, often times they go for far less than their actual value at auction, allowing many buyers to win homes for a fraction of what they would cost on the open market.

Already in 2008, Dallas is establishing itself as one of the leading metropolitan areas in the country for these below market priced homes. The Dallas/Ft. Worth area has recorded 17,000 homes in foreclosure already within the first 3 months of the year, and plenty more are expected to come on the books as experts believe the trend will increase through 2008. And the properties coming on to the market aren't shabby. Experts are noticing a trend where more high-end properties are being sold off, but for the same discount s of anywhere from 10 to 50% below their actual value.
