San Francisco Bank Foreclosures – An Overview

By: Joseph Smith

Recent reports have shown that while home prices in San Francisco have continued to drop, sales of homes have started increasing. The increase in homes’ sales could well be attributed to the considerable fall in property prices.

Since foreclosure affected homes normally sell for lesser than the homes which are untouched by foreclosure, San Francisco bank foreclosures are being looked upon as the more viable options by many home buyers.

San Francisco bank foreclosures are quite easy to find, especially if you use the internet. There are a number of websites which carry foreclosure listings from San Francisco. While some of the websites let you go through the listings for free, most of the more comprehensive ones charge their users a monthly fee (which is mostly quite nominal).

If you wish to look for homes in specific neighborhoods, getting in touch with local real estate agents is a good idea as they are often adept at gathering local information. Lending institutions that deal in home loans can also be approached for lists of foreclosed homes they have on their inventories.

Going through newspapers, newsletters, etc. for foreclosure notices and ads is also a good idea.

While buying foreclosed homes through lenders/banks is regarded as a safe option by many home buyers (because arrears linked to a home are generally taken care of upon foreclosure), some good deals can be had in buying homes in pre foreclosure and at foreclosure auctions.

Do try and go through as many options, make a short-list, and then inspect those homes to see which one would best suit your needs.
