We are recovering, but we’re not there yet. For every completed foreclosure, there are 954 mortgaged homes in non-judicial foreclosure states and 896 mortgaged homes in judicial foreclosure states.

    Because of foreclosure sale competition, you have to “firstest with the leastest” to make money. Pre-foreclosures are one way to do this. Try to buy a CD listing of out-of-area owners from the tax collector Make low offers to buy properties with unpaid property taxes by sending letters to delinquent owners. In the following paragraphs I’ve inserted some distress market approaches that I extracted from my little booklet called “Fifty Nifty Ways to Buy Foreclosures from Distressed Owners and Lenders”. These are to help you to structure transactions that will be acceptable to the other party and profitable for you. All of them won’t work all the time, but, it will pay you to try to build on them to improvise concepts that you will be able to apply in your specific area:

Real estate opportunity

If you go to foreclosure sales, the sale of many of the houses scheduled for sale is postponed at "beneficiaries’ request". This means that something has happened to make the lender think it is going to be paid off in full. Usually, when a loan is in default for a few months, the loan file is handed off to the "Loss Mitigation Department".

I like to negotiate with lenders who have these departments... here's how

On the one hand, I’d be blissfully happy if the current real estate party never came to an end.

On the other hand, tight credit promises a cornucopia of opportunity for those who buy foreclosures.
