Pennsylvania Foreclosure Listings

By: Bob Smith

Pennsylvania foreclosure listings provide a great start to real estate investors seeking great deals on Pennsylvania properties. Do not be fooled into thinking that purchasing a foreclosure is as simple as a point and click. It takes a good deal of time and research to be certain that the property you are interested in is worth the money it will take to acquire it.

Historically, purchasing foreclosure property was for the big time real estate investors or those who are "connected" within the lending market.



Today, with the help of technology and a foreclosure market which is overrun with opportunity, foreclosures are appealing to first time homebuyers and real estate tycoons alike. Simply put, the foreclosure market offers savvy investors more "bang for their buck" as these

properties are generally anywhere from 10% - 50% below market value.

A comprehensive foreclosure listing is the first step to finding and purchasing real estate foreclosure property. For new investors in the

foreclosure market, there are numerous self help books, webinars, seminars and websites offering information and step by step instructions of

investing in real estate, including investing in the foreclosure market. In fact, and unfortunately, investing in the foreclosure market has become an industry by itself. It's the simple rule of supply and demand. The supply of properties in foreclosure have never been higher than they are today.

However, it will take a smart and diligent homebuyer to locate and research the available foreclosure deals.

As stated previously, the first step is a comprehensive foreclosure listing. These listings can be easily found on the internet. The best listings will contain full property addresses, photographs, financial information, and lender contact information. However, that is only the start of the research needed to get a great deal. Additional research is needed, such as determining if any additional liens are present, if the former homeowners are still living at the residence, if major renovations are needed as well as inspections and an independent appraisal are all found on a good research punchlist.

A Pennsylvania foreclosure listing is a great start to discovering some great Pennsylvania properties in foreclosure. But, don't let your research stop there!! Those "in the know" will tell you, ask questions, get answers and perform due diligence to make sure you are putting your hard earned money in a safe and sound investment.
