Venice CA Homes For Sale|Everything Home Buyers Must Realize 25

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 8   |   Comments: 0
I am sure everyone has read the news reports regarding the sheer quantity of homes going to foreclosure, but how do you go about getting one? To begin there are many Venice CA homes for sale which are being auctioned off right as we speak so research into that.

Firstly, it is advisable to sit down and have a think about the statements listed below:

o In many states, you buy the house at auction. It's also worth bearing in mind that you are not usually given any access to the property you wish to purchase prior to the auction. You'll want to at least drive past the property you are looking at purchasing to make certain it at least looks how you imagined. You'll probably still find people living at the address right up to the auction. They had a problem like this in Venice recently, where there were numerous Venice CA homes for sale due to foreclosure proceedings, where after auctions tenants simply refused to move.

o It is also worth bearing in mind that you sometimes cannot simply move in immediately to your new property, the occupants may sometimes need to be evicted. Because of this even after you buy the house, the people who were foreclosed on could be living there. What is usually an attractive solution to this potential problem is to consider paying those still in the home a few hundreds dollars or so to move. It will most probably benefit you to pay a fee such as that described previously to prevent any problems. This precise tactic was one which those with Venice CA homes for sale recently employed.

o It is also important to check as to whether the house has been vacant through the winter period. You may be facing an expensive bill if there is evidence of pipe damage due to the cold weather and the lack of heating inside the building.

o The Sheriff's office will usually be able to provide you with a portfolio of properties which are in the foreclosure process.

o Any time you look at purchasing a house this way, use the services of as REALTOR as they will be able to provide you with further information regarding valuations and expected bid prices. This is invaluable as it will enable you to know exactly how much the price is worth at market price and how much it should sell for at auction.

o You must ensure that you know the liens against the property. (A lien is anyone who has a financial involvement in the property for example a bank.) This info can be obtained via contacting the office of the Recorder of Deeds. All liens on any property should be found recorded there.

o The order of priority in terms of liens is usually viewed like this:

1. Federal Tax

2. State Tax

3. Local Tax

4. 1st. Mortgage recorded.(normally, this is the primary mortgage)

5. 2nd Mortgage recorded (commonly another kind of credit).

o What commonly happens is that when the higher ranking party forecloses the lower ranked liens are wiped clean, apart from TAX liens. But this is not always the case and the rules are worth checking. Please find below some examples. Generally the case studies below use Venice CA homes for sale as examples.

1. One scenario could be that the property has $200,000 in the first mortgage, $10,000 in tax liens and $50,000 in a second mortgage. The house auctions for $205,000. Well firstly the tax would be paid, then the primary mortgage and then anyone left over money would be paid to the remaining creditors. The new buyer would then own the home out right with no existing debts from the previous owners. (This is certainly never guaranteed though, it all depends on the regulations in force in your area.) In the Venice district the regulations regarding Venice CA homes for sale are very harsh.

2. The property which has 50K in tax liens and is foreclosed by the government for TAX Sale. The house in this example is also linked to an extra mortgage of $250,000. This clears the tax lien that foreclosed and usually all subordinate leans. When this occurs the primary mortgage creditor will bid on the home to protect their financial interests in the property.

o It is commonplace that if you should win the property you pay around 10% up front at the auction house. You will then have a set time frame to pay the outstanding balance.

o An important procedure that you should carry out before agreeing to purchase is to firstly hire a lawyer, carry out a title search, purchase title insurance and have the lawyer prepare the deed for the house.

o Providing the title search doesn't throw up anything unexpected then go ahead and complete the acquisition.

o However, if the title search does throw up some questionnable information then you should seriously contemplate whether completing the purchase of the house is worth the risk.

o If all is well and you are happy to continue then pay the rest of the 90% and ensure that you record the deed, (your lawyer will help you).

o If the house is vacant then you will of course need access, (but usually you will not be provided with any keys). You do obviously still own the home though. (You will probably find that in some states there is a period of time where the existing occupants can reverse the foreclosure by settling the amount they owe This is particularly true of Venice CA homes for sale.) You will of course have access to the house, but the risk is high.

o If the house is not vacant, you have to work with the local sheriff to evict the current tenants. Note my suggestion above.

I hope this info has helped to demonstrate to you the risks involved with foreclosure properties. It is a long way from the relaxed and attractive transaction which many people seem to see it as. There are several other options you have.

1. Of course there is the standard option of just purchasing a house through the normal channels i.e. through a real estate agent. In this case banks will commonly lower their lien to avoid the chance of a foreclosure. This process could have prevented Venice CA houses going up for sale.

2. It is also possible to actually purchase homes direct from banks. Banks also commonly used realtors to advertise their properties available for purchase, so contracting a REALTOR will aid you in this process. Just before I forget though, if anyone is looking for homes in California, check this resource out Venice CA homes for sale.

Foreclosures homes often allow new buyers to get into the market. However, as with most things which seem too good to be true, foreclosure properties also present a great risk to the potential buyer. You have to make yourself fully alert to the regulations and rules related to purchasing a property like this.

Make certain you hire the services of a licensed REALTOR. Your contact, which must be prepared professionally, should ensure that the home you are considering purchasing is completely clear of all liens or the closing will not occur. You've probably seen the news articles about how those purchasing Venice CA homes for sale were recently caught out by not carrying out proper research.

Best of luck if you are intending to buy a property through by this means. For those who are looking to buy a house in much less risky manner, call a REALTOR and let the shopping begin. Real estates agents have responded recently in a positive manner to the masses of people wanting to move to Venice by locating them Venice CA homes for sale.
