  1. Real estate has always been in the priority list of investors – small or big, amateurs or professionals.  Real estate and investment in real estate has always been considered good investment after gold, as predicted by generations of yore. With a change in the economy and interest rates being at an all time low, and the stock market being equally volatile and risk prone, people prefer to invest or put money into something from which they can reap benefits in the long run. The answer to the inevitable is real estate. It has the advantage of wanting to sell it in times of a rising economy, convert it into a bed and breakfast and reap profits out of it, or simply let it out. 

    The best was to augment such investment is looking at buying foreclosed homes.  The current market conditions enable the buyer to buy properties almost at throw away prices. Sometimes they get the benefit of properties at good locations and affluent areas. Not only that, they can afford to buy property which are almost palatial and big and would otherwise be way beyond their budget. 

    Banks these days prefer to consider an option of selling out a foreclosed property to the buyer than have it auctioned and lose millions of dollars on it.  A foreclosed property could come in as cheap as 60 to70% of the real cost. Sometimes the balance money could be used to redo an otherwise trashed property to your own liking. Savings may also be two fold.  If the property is bought from the person or institution who lends money has power over the mortgage. The lender at this point could be interested in forgoing a part of the closing cost as well as offer a discount in the interest rate or down payment for the property.

    This is definitely rewarding. Undoubtedly, the name of the game is patience. A person interested in foreclosed property ought to do serious research and property searches for weeks before he can find a property that he would want to invest in. As it is not throw away mullah that one is using for that foreclosed property, it is essential to also simultaneously think of the use the property would be put into. The whole process might be daunting, but it sure is a rewarding one.
