1 1/2 Story Home for Auction

1 1/2 Story Home for Auction

Great first home or rental property investment

Are you an avid DIY remodeler? Is Fixer Upper your favorite show of all time? Do you want to test your skills out? If so, this is the auction for you! We will be auctioning off this 1 1/2 story home located in Burton, Michigan on Wednesday, February 26th. The starting bid is only $5,000! This one bed, one bath home would be the perfect investment for someone just starting out in the real estate market, or would be a great rental property! View more details about the auction here.

The home is officially one bed, one bath, but there is an additional room that was used as an extra bedroom in the past. Some restoration work has been completed, but it needs to be cleaned and the rest of the updates need to be made before someone would be able to move in. The home has a newer natural gas furnace and hot water heater. There is a nice back yard that would provide a nice place to relax during summer evenings. After all, you can’t beat Michigan summers!


Having a rental property is a fantastic source of income. After you have made the renovations for the property (DIY or contracted out), you can simply rent out the home and use the rent from your tenant to pay for the mortgage or the costs of the renovations. Then after the loan is paid off, you will have a secondary income that you can use to pay off your own mortgage or any other expenses that you might have. Of course, you can also choose to live in this home yourself! Once it is fixed up it would be a perfect starter home for a couple. Then, as they grow out of the home they can either keep it and rent it out or they can sell it to add to their down payment for their next home!

How To Find Foreclosed Homes

How To Find Foreclosed Homes

Your guide to the foreclosure market

Buying a foreclosed home is an amazing way to make your way into the world of real estate. Regardless if you plan on purchasing a property for yourself or are looking to flip homes, you are sure to find a great deal on the foreclosure market. But first things first, you’re going to have to find a property to buy! Because foreclosure sales operate a little differently than traditional real estate sales, you might find yourself wondering how to find foreclosed homes for sale. There are a few different ways that you can go about finding your dream foreclosed property:

Find A Real Estate Agent:

Your real estate agent will be your best friend throughout your foreclosure process. Traditional real estate sales can be overwhelming, so think about what the foreclosure buying process would look like without an agent! It’s best for you to find an agent the specializes specifically in foreclosures, as they will have a wealth of knowledge to share with you during your buying process. They know the market and the general rules and regulations that surround foreclosed properties. They will help you find the homes with the most potential and guide you away from those that would end up costing you more than they are worth. An agent will search out properties that fit your qualifications and will have the inside scoop from their coworkers and other leads to find the house of your dreams. While it isn’t 100% necessary to have an agent, they are extremely helpful throughout the foreclosure process!

Check Pre-Foreclosures:

Depending on the property, foreclosures can sell fast. If you want to be the first to know when a foreclosure hits the market, try checking out pre-foreclosures. A pre-foreclosure sale occurs when the owner of the property knows that their home is in the early stages of a foreclosure. During this time, they have the opportunity to find a way to catch up on their missed payments or sell the house themselves. If you are interested in the property you can choose to buy it directly, or you can wait and see if it ends up being foreclosed. Pre-foreclosures are a fantastic way to be aware of what will soon be on the foreclosure market.

Banks & Asset Management Companies:

Go straight to the source! In a foreclosure sale, the bank or asset 

foreclosed homes

management service is the seller of the property. Major banks will have listings on their website that you can search through to find a property in your area. For example, check out the foreclosures page for Bank of American here.

Auction Companies:

Find online real estate auction sites (like us!) that sell foreclosed properties. From undeveloped land to commercial and residential properties, you are sure to find a plethora of properties available. We are constantly updating our upcoming auction page, so make sure to check in regularly to see what properties are listed. Auctions are a lot less hassle than a traditional sale as well, as all you have to do is place your bid online and wait for the auction to end! Check out some of our upcoming foreclosure auctions here.

Online Real Estate Websites

Check real estate sites that list properties available for rent, sale, pre-foreclosure and foreclosure. This is another quick and easy way for you to find homes available in your area. Available properties will be continually updated, and these sites typically cover the whole country, allowing you to research properties in any state you want!

Take A Drive

Want to get off the internet? Drive through the area you are interested in and look for foreclosure signs! While this might be a slightly tedious process, it’s a great way to get a close look at a property and a feel for the neighborhood. Take a few detours on your way to or from work each day and you might just find the foreclosure of your dreams!

Foreclosed properties are truly a fantastic way to find a home for a great deal! We hope that this guide has given you a few ideas of where you can look for a property, but if you have future questions about how to find foreclosed homes, feel free to contact us!

How To Buy A Foreclosed Home

foreclosure real estate auctions

How To Buy A Foreclosed Home

What You Need to Know for a Foreclosure Real Estate Auction

Foreclosures are a great way to purchase a home and land for cheap! Often you can get great properties for a fraction of the cost you would pay in a traditional real estate sale. Foreclosure auctions are fast and easy, since you know exactly what you plan to pay and when you can expect to close on the property (auctions do have end times while typical real estate sales do not). There is a bit of a different process to purchasing a house in a foreclosure auction compared to a traditional real estate sale, so read on to be fully informed before you place a bid.

What are Foreclosures?

A home is foreclosed upon when the owner stops making their mortgage payment. In order to receive a loan for a large purchase, you are required to have some form of collateral to back it. This is typically whatever you are using the loan to pay off, in this case, a house. If you fail to make payments on your loan, the bank or other lender will take possession of the home in order to recover their losses. Often, the bank does not have time to wait to hold a traditional real estate sale, so they will sell through us to liquidate the property to quickly. We auction off many traditional and commercial real estate properties for banks and other lending associations.

Find an Agent

One of the first things that you will want to do when looking to purchase a

foreclosed home is to find a quality real estate agent that is familiar with foreclosures. Their experience will be necessary in your search process and they will able to help you discover exactly what sort of foreclosure you are looking for. They know what to look for in a foreclosed property that will make it a great investment and will do all they can to get you the best price possible. If you are planning on purchasing a home through a foreclosure real estate auction, it isn’t necessary for you to have an agent, as you won’t have to be negotiating anything. However, if you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect foreclosed property you probably already have an agent – so it won’t hurt to bring them along to see the property you are planning on bidding on!

Understand As-Is/Sale Subject to Approval

One of the major differences between a foreclosure sale and a foreclosure auction is that the buyer has a lot less negotiating power. Foreclosures are typically sold As-Is, meaning that what you see is what you get. Because the bank is the seller, they will not perform any upgrades or fix minor repairs in order to compromise with you on a selling price. Additionally, anything left on the property (such as old furniture) will belong to you as well and it will be up to you to choose how you wish to deal with it.

Foreclosures also typically have a ‘Sale Subject to Approval’ term to them. Because the bank needs to recover as much of their loss as possible, often times they must approve the amount that has been offered to make sure it will be enough for them.

Inspect the Property

After you have gone through all of the information and photos that are available online of the property that is up for auction (or for sale depending on the process you are going through), check for inspection dates and times that will allow you to take a better look at the property you are planning on purchasing. Once you are at the property, do a complete walk through of the property top to bottom. You will want to note any damages that need to be fixed in addition to surveying the condition of the rest of the house. Make sure that the house suits the purpose you are intending it for, and step back and look at it objectively as a real estate investment.

Know Your Finances

Here’s the big one – sit down and figure out what you are able to pay. Buying

inspect your real esate

a house is a huge ordeal, and it should not be taken lightly. First things first, visit your own bank and get preapproval for a loan if you aren’t planning on paying for a property outright. This will expedite the sale process on your end and will help you decide how much you can pay for the property. Next, consider what you are willing to pay, not just what the bank says you can afford to pay. It’s important to figure out your maximum bid so that you do spend outside of your means. Afterall, you don’t want to have to foreclose yourself! Take into consideration any of the expenses you will incur to repair damages that currently exist. Last but certainly not least, make sure that you know all property taxes and any other yearly expenses you might have to pay if you purchase a foreclosed property. While you may be able to afford the property when it is foreclosed, do you have the funds to keep up with it all the time? You will be able to find all relevant tax information listed on our auction site for each property.

What to do Next

Congratulations you placed a bid and won the foreclosed property you were bidding on! Now comes the fun part! There are so many things that you can do with a foreclosed home. You can complete all of the necessary renovations and live in the home yourself or flip the home for a profit. You may also choose to keep the home and rent it out, creating a nice additional form of income for yourself. You can also take down the building and rebuild! Whatever you choose to do, we know that you are going to love the result. Ready to start bidding?
