The number one secret weapon when buying a foreclosure

    You may think that Cash is the best weapon when buying a foreclosure, bank owned or real estate owned property.

    Foreclosures may be better real estate dealsThat is, most often, not the case. The banks have their shareholders that want the largest return possible and those offers requiring financing may be above the cash offers.

    They also may have terms like they are putting 50% down, still being higher than the cash offers to be submitted.

    When the banks and the AM’s – Asset managers – receive offers, they are tasked with making sure they admit the best offer only.

    They want the offer that is going to make all the way to the finish line on their Foreclosure asset.

    So often was the case in the beginning of the last REO/Foreclosure cycle, that the banks accepted offers that were “way higher” than the listing price.

    Only to have the deal fall apart when the appraiser went into evaluating the home they had bought.

    The most powerful weapon when it comes buying a foreclosure and one that will give you the edge is going to be the experienced real estate agent you are hiring.

    You want your realtor to have “direct experience” working with the handling of REO Assets. They know what the AM’s expect when it comes to the “reviewing offers” time.

    They will know how you can best position yours, to outshine the others that were submitted.

    Your Foreclosure Expert will guide you on what it’s going to take to have your offer accepted. ¬†And if you are lucky enough to find one that can give you access to the Pre Foreclosure Inventory, then you have scored big!

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation. Writing on their Real Estate Blog is a passion. SCVnest.com/blog is where you will find over 10,000 real estate articles.
