Pros and Cons of Buying a 

House in Foreclosure


When a homeowner can’t make mortgage-loan payments and the lender repossesses the property, the home becomes foreclosed and is typically available for sale soon after.
Many benefits can come with buying a foreclosed property, but if you’re not knowledgeable about the process, there are pitfalls you need to consider. Before you purchase a foreclosed home, review the pros and cons to avoid ugly surprises.

Before you buy a foreclosed property, consider hiring a real-estate agent. Having someone who’s looking out for your best interests might save you a big headache.
Don’t confuse a foreclosed home with a real estate owned (REO) property. An REO describes a class of property that a lender — typically a bank, government agency or government loan insurer — owns after an unsuccessful sale at a foreclosure auction.

First steps


• Determine what foreclosure properties are available in the areas you want to live in by reviewing listings in your local newspaper or on bank websites, accessing public records, or conducting an online search.
• Check out the properties you’re considering in person so you can see their condition and neighborhood.
• Verify that the house is still in foreclosure. Contact the trustee who filed the paperwork to initiate the foreclosure or a local foreclosure specialist for this information.
• Order a title search to see if there are any liens on the property. If there are, it could raise the price.

The Pros

Aspects of buying a bank-owned property are similar to buying from a homeowner, but there are opportunities to negotiate a better deal on a foreclosed property than you might otherwise get. Pros of buying a foreclosed home include:
• You can use traditional financing like VA and FHA loans.
• A home in the pre-foreclosure stage could lead to a short sale.
• If you have the required funds available to pay the outstanding balance on a foreclosed property’s mortgage to the lender, you’ll likely reduce competition.
• The bank will be motivated to sell the property, which means you might be able to negotiate price, down payment, closing costs and escrow length.
• The home’s title will be clear, so you won’t be taking on any liens, mortgages or back-tax responsibility from the previous owner.
• If repairs are necessary, the owner might take care of them.

The Cons

Although buying a foreclosed home might seem like a great deal, it can have drawbacks. Cons of buying a foreclosed home include:
• The occupant might still be in the house and will need to move out. He might be upset about losing the property and damage it.
• If you purchase a house at a foreclosure auction, you buy it as is.
• When a foreclosed property is auctioned off, you have to pay for it in full when you buy it.
If you decide to purchase a foreclosed home, it might end up costing you more in repairs than you planned on, which could be a bad financial move. You might get a foreclosed home at a great price, however, and speed your path to home-ownership.

If you’re considering buying a foreclosed home, enlist the help of a qualified real-estate agent at PIERVIEW PROPERTIES Real Estate. That way, you can get their expert insights and opinion on whether you’re getting a good buy.

As a seller, you have a lot more control in pleasing buyers than you think. If you start the selling process by learning what buyers really want, you can prepare your home to come as close to their dreams as possible.
Here are the five biggest turn-ons for home-buyers and what you can do to please buyers.

Curb Appeal
You only get one chance to make a first impression. Your home should sell to the buyer from the curb. That's how important curb appeal is. Your buyer should be so impressed, so charmed, so delighted that they want to leap out of the car and run inside.

How do you create curb appeal? Show attention to detail. Your home has to be prettier, cleaner and in better condition than its neighbors.
Start with sweeping the drive, walkway, and porch or entry of dirt and debris. Get rid of leggy bushes, wilted flowers and broken tree limbs. Plant fresh flowers in the front garden or in containers at the entry.
Power-wash the exterior and hand-wash the windows. Touch up paint around the windows, if needed. Paint the front door a fresh, modern color. Replace the door hardware and porch sconces.

Space

The number one reason why people buy homes is to have more room. Whether they're moving from an apartment or moving up from the home they have, they want to have plenty of space to do the things they enjoy.

If you have a large home, you're golden, but that doesn't mean you've got it made. You can ruin a buyer's first impression with too much clutter, so make sure to keep your home picked up so your buyer can see your home's features clearly and easily.

What if you don't have a lot of space? Plan to do some storing and staging. Rent a storage unit and put away all out of season clothes, toys, and home decorations and accessories. Clean off all tables and counter-tops so you have only the minimum of things your need to operate your home. Empty closets of anything that is "stored" and move it to the storage unit. The small expense you'll pay in storage fees you'll more than make back from your buyer's offer.

Updates
There's a reason why first time buyers and singles tend to buy older homes - they're more affordable than buying new. So unless your buyer is a building contractor, chances are they want a home that's as updated as possible.

You may not be interested in putting in a new kitchen in order to sell your home, but you can do a few things to make buyers happy. Replace the most dated features - counter-tops, cabinet pulls, or appliances.

Bathrooms are so personal that they can easily turn buyers off. Invest in new towels, bathmats and a shower curtain. Throw out slimy soaps and limp ragged bath sponges. Replace with liquid shower and bath products. You can take all the new stuff with you to the next home.

Painting is expected by buyers, but don't repaint the same colors that you chose 10 years ago. Pick an updated neutral like a warm grey instead of beige. Be sure to choose a color that will complement the architecture and flooring in your home.

Keep in mind that home-buyers aren't expecting your home to be a mansion, nor do they expect it to be new, but they do expect to see pride of ownership. The more tweaks, updates and repairs that you perform, the more confident your buyers will be that they're choosing the right home

COUNTER-TOP PROS AND CONS: 

WHAT TO CHOOSE AND WHY

Wondering how to choose a counter-top for your kitchen? With so much to pick from, it can be challenging - especially with changing trends and so many options that are at similar price points. This pro and con list should help.
Quartz
Quartz is the most popular choice in counter-tops today because of its easy maintenance and seemingly unending array of looks, from sleek and modern to options that mimic the appearance of exotic stone and classic marble.
Pros: It won't stain, so go ahead and drink that red wine. Let your kids have at it with the markers and paint. Go crazy and chop those veggies right on the surface since it's pretty hard to scratch. Quartz also requires no sealing, unlike granite and other countertop materials.
Cons: High-end quartz can be pricier than real stone like granite, and while it's much easier to care for, it's not indestructible. Hot pots should still be placed on a trivet to avoid burning the surface.
Granite
While granite has been replaced by quartz as the countertop of choice today, it remains a popular option for homeowners.
Pros: The natural stone comes in a variety of colors and styles, and individual patterns and markings give each slab a unique look. "Granite has a rich beauty that few other countertop materials can match," said Countertop Guides. "It is a natural product with a timeless aura and appeal." Granite is also stain- and scratch-resistant, if properly sealed.



Cons: It's that "properly sealed" part that can make people shy away from granite. Improper maintenance can leave you with a stained, scratched counter. And don't place a hot pot directly on it or you run the risk of it an ugly burn.
Marble
It's gorgeous, it's classic, and it's showcased all over TV in high-end, remodeled kitchens. But marble has a downside that makes it hard to love for many people: the care involved.
Pros: "Is there anything that looks and feels more glamorous than a marble countertop?," asks Houzz. "Nothing beats marble for sheer elegance. It stands up to heat well, and because it remains perennially cool, it's a traditional choice for pastry and baking stations."
Cons: It's going to stain, no matter how hard you try to keep it clean, and even if you seal it responsibly. It's also a softer material, which makes it more likely to scratch and chip.
Stainless Steel
Stainless steel countertops are most commonly found in commercial kitchens but have become more popular as home kitchens have transformed into chef-worthy spaces.
Pros: "Professional chefs love stainless steel because it's non-staining, heat-resistant and easy to clean," said Houzz. "While it certainly makes fingerprints and scratches stand out, it's a great choice for hardworking kitchens that don't need a perfect look." It can also be more affordable than stone.
Cons: About those fingerprints…that's a deterrent for many people. If you can't stand little marks on your stainless steel fridge, you probably won't enjoy them on your counters, either. Stainless steel can also look a little cold, and may not be embraced by the masses - something to think about for when it's time to sell your home.
Concrete
Concrete counter-tops have gained in popularity over the past few years as industrial looks have become more trendy, and are also a favorite of HGTV personality Joanna Gaines, one of today's most influential taste makers.
Pros: Because concrete is poured and not quarried, it can look like almost anything you want, with custom shapes, sizes, and colors. It's also durable, "and both scratch and heat resistant," said Angie's List. "Because each countertop is individually handmade, there are endless ways to customize them."

Concrete Network
Cons: Concrete is porous, shows errors and imperfections, and can easily stain. Some people like that because the changes over time are organic; those who want their countertop looking pristine may want to opt for a product other than concrete. Even with diligent sealing, it'll never be "perfect."
Another consideration for people looking to use concrete on their counters is how, or rather, where, it is poured. "Concrete countertops that are poured in place (not precast) may develop a hairline crack," said Angie's List. "The cracks aren't necessarily the result of poor workmanship, rather perhaps a new house settling or tension caused by a faucet screwed in too tightly. Hairline cracks can be tricky to fix - ironically the larger the crack, the easier it is to fill and repair - so you might chalk up any such flaw to being a part of concrete's natural patina."
