Hello,
You can find great foreclosure deals, however don't let a small price tag lure you into a rush. Ask yourself a few questions: Do you have the money for the repairs these houses often need? How are you going to repair it?  Will the bank allow you to do a home inspection? Does it require just cosmetic work or are there costly hidden expenses . If  you want  to rehab and then rent, can you afford the property if you don't find a tenant? You may not be able to recoup the cost of the repairs . How long the property been empty? Was it winterized?  Research the neighborhood and value.  Make sure you do your  homework to minimize the risk. Good luck.
