Looking for a Long Grove pre-foreclosure, Long Grove foreclosure or RE0 in the Long Grove area?
Every buyer in Long Grove or Hawthorn Woods or for that matter any client wants a deal . Depending on the particular situation, deals can most definitely be had, sometimes in the form of a short sale purchase , a true foreclosure, or in my case my favorite kind of deal is just a very motivated seller. Below you will find a list of some of the preforeclosure and foreclosure properties in Long Grove, Kildeer and Hawthorn Woods are that are currently on the market.
In case you want to try the Long Grove/ Hawthorn Woods foreclosure route, I have the experience to make this transaction as easy as possible. I have provided to the right, a list of the pre- foreclosures foreclosures and bank owned property ( REO's) in the Long Grove area.
If you aren't familiar with the difference between pre- foreclosure or REO( banked owned) I explained the terms below
Pre-Foreclosure (often a short sale)
In this scenario the seller still owns the house is behind on their mortgage and the lender has begun foreclosure action. It is a "short sale" because the lender would have to agree to accept less than what is owed in order for the sale to close. In most, cases due to the pending foreclosure judgment, there is a time factor as the seller races the lender who is likely working on foreclosing on the house even though the seller is trying to sell it. Presently there are
Short sales are great for people who have patience, do not get too emotionally tied up in the deal and might not want to deal with repair work in their new property . Since the owner still is living in the property, one of my concerns is the condition the sellers will be leaving the property in at closing.
Foreclosures (bank owned properties or REO's that have already been foreclosed on by the lenders)
In this scenario, the lender has already foreclosed on the house and taken it back and put it back on the market. The bank is the new owner and seller... The foreclosed on house will be vacant and possibly in need of repair work such as new appliances. I have seen many kitchens that are completely gutted. Sometimes I am completely surprised and the foreclosure is actually in very good shape.
Foreclosures are often sold at a greater discount than short sales and you normally receive an answer quickly (even in a day or two). My advice to you is that you should only buy a foreclosed property if there are relatively "FEW" foreclosures or short sales in the neighborhood. You do not want to buy a foreclosure where there are "MANY" foreclosures in the neighborhood.
Buying and selling real estate in Long Grove or the surrounding Northwest Suburbs, especially short sale and foreclosure properties, has it's challenges but in many times can be rewarding. I have recently purchased a bank owned home for my clients, at a price way below the appraised value. I myself have worked on foreclosures and have the knowledge and expertise to make the foreclosure transaction as easy as possible. If you are planning to buy or sell a property anytime soon, give me a call and we'll see what the best solution for you will be.
