There are currently a vast number of foreclosed properties on the market in California. In general foreclosed homes tend to be quite distressed, but the current economic situation has left a number of foreclosures for sale that are actually in very good condition. While these homes are undervalued, it wouldn’t take much investment from a savvy house flipper to purchase such properties, prepare them for market, and turn a significant profit.
Foreclosures offer a great investment opportunity, but the competition for these properties is fierce. Here are a few ways you can help separate yourself from the crowd when looking for the right foreclosed properties to invest in.
Do Your Research
Finding the right foreclosed property to invest in can be a full-time job. With so many options on the market, it can be extremely time-consuming sifting through all the options, searching for the best possible investment opportunities. Factors you’ll want to consider include how much the property is currently undervalued, the return on investment of any necessary repairs, the value of other homes in the area, whether the property is in demand, any back taxes or fees associated with purchasing the property, and a plethora of other value concerns. Staying on top of the market is tough, but quality research and calculations are essential to making wise investment decisions. Use our free calculators to get started with your research.
Once you figure out what the best investment opportunities are, it’s imperative to act quickly. Chances are if you’re interested in a hot investment property, a dozen other house flippers are as well. The faster that you can secure a loan, the more likely it is that you’ll end up holding the keys to your first-choice properties. But remember, in this market, just because a home has several investors interested doesn’t necessarily make it a good investment.
