Indiana Foreclosure Listings

By: philip smith

Increasing numbers of low cost residential housing swelling Indiana foreclosure listings mean your first investment can likely be made for less than that you might spend on a family car or renovations to your current residence.

Investing in a single family home or multi family residential property is a smart move now in most states where cold housing markets mean a buyer has many options. Average sales values of foreclosure usually, but not always, come in at numbers far less than the median value of traditional homes in the real estate housing market. Indiana, along with Ohio and Tennessee, has a particularly low average foreclosure sale value, recorded at around $69,000 in June 2007. Reputable and comprehensive foreclosure listings online services will prove that there are many properties below this average, some well below, and it is not at all unusual to find property in suburban and rural areas of the state listed around $25,000.

It stands to reason that many of these low cost properties are also low income rental propositions, with a strong market demand. There is always strong demand for affordable housing in many dormitory cities of Indianapolis. A foreclosure property will need varying degrees of repair and renovation the longer the owner-borrower has been in financial distress or the foreclosed property vacant. An investor with limited cash but access to credit can invest his own labor in order to increase the value and make the property more attractive to a retail buyer. There are various strategies for buy and hold and buy, fix and sell investments, which must be determined at the time of the original investment in order to maximise return.

How to find these starter investments? Foreclosure listing services offer search features by county and city that present properties in all three stages of foreclosure within selected price bands. For those that aren't familiar with the low cost communities in Indiana, most listings services have detailed map imaging, give the demographics and some give neighborhood feature information. As your knowledge of this particular market grows you will gain the confidence to rollover your nest egg time and time again, growing it substantially in no time at all.
