Real Estate Foreclosures In MAssachusetts - Finding Them

Finding foreclosures in MAssachusetts is a matter of knowing how and where to look - and then what to do next.  If you know how to look for pre-foreclosures, you may be able to find owners who would like to sell instead of being foreclosed on.  But not all foreclosures or pre-foreclosures are worth spending time researching.

In MAssachusetts, anyone can find details for any property - if the seeker knows where to look and what to look for.  One thing that can be found is a document that is required in order for a mortgage holder to start the foreclosure process. If you know what to look for, it can help start the research process for identifying foreclosures and pre-foreclosures.

There are laws for making contact with anyone who has received indications that they are in arrears on a mortgage.  Make sure you know what you're doing before you contact anyone.  Sometimes, these properties can be purchased ahead of foreclosure, to provide an option to the debtor other than foreclosure.

An example search I recently did in one place, returned 14 possible pre-foreclosure properties for the month of January 2015.  The same place had evidence of 6 actual foreclosures.  Once an address is identified, the mortgage being foreclosed on and the other encumbrances can be further researched to find the possible debt(s) that the property has on it.  Specific information can help to  identify properties with reasonable price possibilities.

Each Investor uses their own formula for evaluating property. Some drive by, some make effots to access the property, and some just rely on straight math.  Cash buyers always have an advantage in any bidding process.  Knowing where to look is only the beginning step. The other parts require good legal advice and support, and a knowledgeable, experienced real estate professional.
