Congratulations!  You’ve decided it’s time to buy  REO property!  Wouldn’t you like to know some “insider” tips to help you to find the perfect property for the perfect price?

Tip #1 Only work with a REO expert!

Chances are, if you adhere to tip #1, you won’t need any other tips.  The REO market is different from the rest of the market.  There is a very specific process that brings  REO properties to the market.  If you aren’t working with a REO expert, you run the risk of not even being able to see the full gamut of properties that are available on the market.  And even if you are lucky enough to find the property of your dreams without a REO property expert, you run the risk of losing the property through missed deadlines.  Don’t make the mistake of trusting your REO purchase to anyone other than a bona fide REO specialist.

Tip #2 Look for Value

When you begin to look at REO properties with your REO Realtor keep an open mind about what you will see.  Everyone prefers to walk into a beautifully maintained property, but almost no one prefers paying more for their mortgage.  REO properties are often neglected and in need of repairs.  As a home buyer this should not discourage you, in fact it is actually good news.  REO properties are sold for fair market value minus the cost of repairs.  The more repairs are needed the smaller your mortgage will be.  Look for value and you will find a home for a great price.

Tip #3 Only work with an REO expert.
It bares repeating.

I have a good friend who likes to ask me, “When would now be a good time?”  She says this whenever I am putting something off or stalling on some important task.  “When would now be a good time?” she asks me when I say I want to treat myself to a day at the spa.  “When would now be a good time?” she persists when I say that I really need to make an appointment for my yearly mammogram.  The question is clever because it cuts to the heart of the matter, there will be a moment when “now” will be a good time.  Is it possible that it is “now”?

There are so many things that we put off in life, actions that we could take that could change the entire trajectory of our lives.  Buying a home is one of those actions that changes a life.  It isn’t just about changing an address; it’s about putting down roots and making a commitment to your financial future.  Buying a home is about giving yourself and your family long term emotional and financial stability.

Of course there are good moments and not so good moments, relatively speaking, to buy a home.  All of the experts seem to be in agreement that this moment in time is one of the most opportune to purchase a home.  There are so many homes to choose from and they are reasonably priced. Additionally there is a limited time tax credit for qualified buyers, making this moment particularly advantageous to buy a home.  Factor in the savings that can be had by purchasing REO property and all I can ask is, “When would now be a good time to buy a home?” 

If you are ready to look at the REO market in the metro New York and Long Island areas, please give us a call at Island Advantage Realty, LLC.  We are the recognized experts in the REO market for this area.  No one is better equipped to help you make “now” your moment to buy a home.

People frequently ask me for an update on the REO Market.  The short answer is that now is the moment to buy.  The long answer is that we are seeing an unprecedented moment in Real Estate history.  There have never been this many REO properties available, and there has certainly never been this range of properties available before.

REO properties are not a new phenomenon.  However, until recent years they were a lesser known segment of the Real Estate world.  Generally people who purchased REO properties in the past were serious investors who were well versed in real estate.  They bought REO properties mainly as investment property either to fix up and use as rentals or to “flip” for profit.  Savvy investors are still buying REO properties for investments but first time home buyers are also discovering the benefits of buying REO properties.

There is a window of opportunity right now to buy REO property and to receive a tax credit of up to $8,000 if you qualify.  Don’t miss this opportunity.  If you aren’t sure if you qualify and you are looking for property in the metro New York or Long Island area please give us a call at Island Advantage Realty, LLC.  We are experts in this field and can answer all of your questions.
