Today, it seems that almost everyone is expecting a ‘deal’- a great deal. Sometimes the bank owned foreclosed properties can be a good buy. Most times they need tons of work (and money). The deals are certainly there, however, the properties don’t have to be bank-owned to get them.
What percentage of Ford’s Colony sales have been bank-owned over the past year? There have been 70 closed sales in the past 12 months. Of those, 7 were detailed as bank-owned properties. Exactly 10% of the sales in Ford’s Colony in the past 12 months were foreclosures. Certainly higher than in times past, but, much lower than the most recent statistic from Realty Trac that indicates that foreclosed properties make up 24.17 percent of all sales nationwide.
