As a real estate investor, even just a beginner, you likely already know all about foreclosures. foreclosures happen when a mortgage holder is unable to pay off their mortgage or unable to sell their home in a certain time frame. When a property enters into foreclosure, that property reverts back to the mortgage lender, who wants to sell it at all costs.

are great buys. To make a profit with foreclosures you must either be able to resell them for a profit or rent them out
to tenants. That is why it is important that you examine the area in question

or rent out a foreclosed property, it may be best to pass on the property.
