Foreclosed bank owned homes require major TLC
Foreclosed bank owned homes are often the product of evicted owners unable to keep up with the payments of their homes. Indeed many of these homes are returned to the bank in a complete state. So those who wish to buy these foreclosed properties need to have a lot of patience as well as copious amounts of TLC to restore these back to their shining glory.
Foreclosed bank owned homes are far more affordable than normal properties on sale, and so it’s perfectly understandable that buying a home via these means is a highly attractive option for many first time buyers. However, those properties damaged by angry and frustrated evictees will require more than the financial outlay to purchase, but require a serious amount of effort in restoring the homes to a habitable state. And while there are definitely properties that have not been badly damaged and have retained their original state, these are far less affordable than those that are badly damaged.
The state of foreclosed bank owned homes determines how much the cost of purchasing that home will be, with the least affordable requiring the least attention and the most affordable requiring the most.
