When buying a distressed property you will likely will be dealing with a motivated seller and or bank. With recent market changes, many of these properties are selling quickly, as many investors and buyers are taking advantages of today’s incredible rates.
For the most part listing agents (representing the bank or seller) are interested in having these homes off the market so they can begin the negotiation stage. There are times that you are able to purchase homes slightly below the market rate depending on strategy. Knowing whether or not a home in a certain area is located in an area where value retention is viable is something we can help you asses.

Disadvantages of Purchasing a Distressed Property

Usually most assume that buying a distressed home you are going to get a great deal! That is not always the case. With inventory being so low, the San Diego market is changing. One of the biggest issues with buying a distressed home is the sale process. It’s sometimes not clear which lending institution actually owns a mortgage loan, and it can take time to get the bank to approve the sale. For the most part, homes in San Diego are in maintained condition, however, at times bank owned or foreclosed properties can be deemed “fixers”.
