homes for sale in canton ma: Yes - Your Buyer Agent Can Show You Foreclosure Listings - 03/21/13 05:23 AM
Many first time buyers come to me very excited to look at foreclosures.  They're willing to put in some time and elbow grease to fix up a property if they can get a pretty good deal on it to start with.  They've heard there are a number of foreclosure properties.  
One of their first questions to me is....can you show me foreclosures?
Of course, as your buyer agent I can certainly show you foreclosures.  
However, there may not be as many foreclosures as you think there are - and many of them may not be suitable for you.

These first time homebuyers came to me over a year ago.  They were looking for an exclusive buyer agent to represent them and were just starting the process.  They needed a preapproval so I sent them to a great mortgage advisor and set up an MLS account to help them start the process.
