How To Buy A Foreclosure In Tallahassee

Too often, we see new buyers come in and say they want to buy a foreclosure or a short sale.

I guess they believe that every distressed property listing is a good deal, simply because of the conditions of the sale.

Unfortunately, that simply is not true.

Some distressed properties sell right away, because there are professionals handling the sale on behalf of the holding entity which wishes to unload the property as quickly and efficiently as possible.

With other properties, we see the opposite. The holding entity might have a target price they want to get, totally unaware of the market conditions in Tallahassee (as well as unaware of the current condition of the foreclosed property).

So buying a foreclosure in Tallahassee is not the best goal for somebody looking for a great deal.

Instead, work with a professional real estate buyer's agent who can guide you to the best deals in Tallahassee, regardless of whether they are short sales, bank owned properties, foreclosures, pre-foreclosures, or even arms-length home sellers.

Do you really care about the reason the seller is selling, or do you want to get the best deal possible?
