Hello Koky,

I currently have a nice condo in the 300's and a beautiful 3 bedroom home for 550k. Both are bank owned and there are currently no offers.


Email me for more info.

There are websites targeted to that market - foreclosures.com, realtytrac.com  I would start there as they also provide articles on how to buy foreclosures. 

There are really only 3 ways:

Work with the homeowner before it goes to foreclosure
Buy at auction (you have to buy as is, often sight unseen - a risky proposition)
Buy once the bank puts it back on the market - you can tell which listings are these because the property record will show it is owned by a bank.

Hope that helps!
