What we should tell them is that according to studies, very few homes actually sell as a direct result of ads or open houses. It boils down to three things; price, condition, and location.…Continue

If these homes go to foreclosure sale and are acquired by the bank, they become REO properties to be sold significantly below market value. These REO properties may be next door to you, thus lowering the value of your home.…Continue
