Columbia SC Foreclosures

Columbia SC Foreclosures and Columbia SC Short Sales are readily available in our ever changing economy. Although the Columbia SC area was just listed as one of Forbe's Top 25 Strongest Housing Markets, the number of Columbia SC foreclosures is still creeping up in South Carolina. About 9.4 percent of homeowners in South Carolina were at least 30 days behind on their home loans in the third quarter of 2008. South Carolina ranks 15th in the nation in the number of people behind on their mortgage per the Mortgage Bankers Association (2/2009).

According to the National Association of REALTORS, more than 30% of all sales from December 2008 until March 2009 have been foreclosed, short sales or distressed situations. This is similar to the situation with Columbia SC foreclosures and Columbia SC Short Sales.

Investors, first time home buyers, and future home flippers now is the time to buy a Columbia SC Foreclosure or Columbia SC Short Sale home. With home prices low and lots of homes for sale it is a perfect time to get a house at a great price. If you're interested in purchasing Columbia SC Foreclosures or Columbia SC Short Sales we can help. 

Foreclosures

Foreclosures are properties where a borrower has defaulted on a loan and the lender has repossessed the property. Foreclosures are bank owned properties for sale. The lender does not make a profit on foreclosures. Foreclosures are a good opportunity for a buyer to purchase a property at a discount.

Short Sales

Short sale is the sale of a property in which the proceeds from the sale fall short of the balance owed on the loan. A short sale is a final attempt of a seller to avoid foreclosure. The seller doesn't make a profit in a short sale. In a short sale, the listing agent represents the owner of the property but negotiates with the lender. The lender makes the decision on what offer they are willing to accept from a buyer. A short sale can take much longer to execute than a regular purchase. It can take days to weeks to hear back from a lender after an offer is made on a short sale property. Be prepared to be patient and you can get a nice bargain.
