Buying a Marietta Foreclosure

Services for Real Estate Pros with PalmerHouse Properties Realty

Are you looking to buy a foreclosed home in Marietta? Nowadays, buyers are being drawn to the oversupply of Marietta homes that have been foreclosed on, hoping they can find a good deal. These deals are possible because overwhelmed lenders are stuck holding real estate that they don’t want. The only way to free up their balance sheets is to unload hundreds if not thousands of homes at discount prices.

Remember, banks are in the money lending business, not the property management business. This means opportunity for buyers looking for a discounted home in Marietta, GA. It is not uncommon to find foreclosed homes being sold at 75-85% of their appraised value. On occasion, it is possible to find homes at even a steeper discount if you are patient and persistent. Marietta has plenty of foreclosed homes ranging in prices less than 100K to nearly a million.

One of the most important decisions you can make in buying a foreclosed Marietta home is working with a real estate professional. Buying a foreclosed home is much different than a traditional sale and there are many potential factors homeowners need to be aware of. I recommend having a buyer’s agent fully represent you during the transaction.
