Find your Dream in an Ohio Foreclosure Listing

By: Bob Smith

The first step in finding your dream home or property that is in foreclosure
or foreclosed is to get connected to Ohio foreclosure listings via the
internet. Once entering a search, you will find multitudes of URL??s available
to give you the information you need, so look around, try out free trials
until you find the one that offers to you the most information at an
affordable price.

Get prequalified!! Set a budget and stick to it. You may get zealous when
you learn of all the opportunities waiting for you, but you don??t want to end
up ON the foreclosure listing. Be realistic on what you should and should
not spend and don??t get too caught up in the moment. This may be your
first property you have found using a foreclosure listing, however, it does
not have to be your last!

Once you find a property or properties you are interested in, do your
research. Remember the first rule in real estate investment is LOCATION,
LOCATION, LOCATION. If you are unfamiliar with the area, check out
schools, tax rates and market values of properties similar to the one you
are considering. Make sure the property will meet or exceed your
investment goals.

Determine if the property needs any type of repairs etc. Many times homes
that are in foreclosure have been neglected or were left in disarray when
the former owners left. Be sure to add to your budget the expenses
necessary to bring the property to the standard necessary for you to either
live in it, rent it or flip it.

Finally, make sure you perform your due diligence. Check the public records
to determine if there are additional liens on the property. If so, attempt to
work them out with the lender. If you purchase a home in foreclosure,
understand you purchase everything about the home, including any liens
that may be attached to it.

Ohio foreclosure listings can be your first step in purchasing a home
currently in a state of foreclosure. Find a foreclosure listing that you can
tell is up to date and is comprehensive, but realize you will still want to
verify all of the info yourself. Talk to the lender and, if possible, the
homeowner, get as much information available regarding the property. Do
your research, make sure this is the property that will assist in
accomplishing your dreams.
