Local Foreclosed Homes Take Investor Strategy

If you have ever wanted to buy foreclosed homes in Costa Mesa or nearby areas, a recent look at the market will have shown you that it is becoming more of a competitive exercise than was the case just a short while ago. Especially if you are an investor who is focused on the profit potential, not every offering will clearly fit the bill. The agents at Weichman Realtors wanted to share some ideas for sniffing out a profitable deal:

1. Look for a home that has been on the market for a while.
Low-priced homes which have been listed for a short duration often wind up fetching higher prices than higher-priced homes that have been idling on the market for a while. If you are looking to buy foreclosed homes in Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach or even Fountain Valley, ask your agent about bank-owned listings he or she feels may be overpriced. Then, if you like one that has been on the market for a while, consider making a low bid. Sean O’Toole, founder and CEO of ForeclosureRadar.com, says “The underpriced properties get a ton of activity and go quickly, but you can really get a better deal on an overpriced property.”

2. Stick with homes that don’t need repairs.

It’s different for those who are finding a property they will call home. For investors, foreclosure sales are only worthwhile if they will not have to spend more money and time repairing the house than the projected profit margin allows. A great deal is not necessarily the lowest-priced home in a neighborhood; seasoned investors looking to buy foreclosed homes have learned to undervalue neither the financial nor time investments.

3. Buy at the year- or quarter-end.

When you buy foreclosed homes from a lender, the situation differs from that with a traditional seller. Usually, you will be negotiating with a corporation. Since that is the case, their internal financial reporting can sometime make a difference. O’Toole advises to “…consider making a November or December offer highlighting the fact that you can close by the end of the year.” You just might be able to get a lower price simply by taking advantage of the bank’s timing.

Finding the Home That Fits Your Retirement

How about this for a stunner: each and every day for the next 17 years, more than 10,000 American “baby boomers” will hit retirement age. That is based on 65 being considered retirement age (although many 65-year-olds we know haven’t the slightest intention of abandoning their careers anytime soon). Nevertheless, the impact that this demographic wave will have on everybody is bound to be substantial.

In the housing industry, even seniors who are anything but retired will be gravitating toward newer, smaller homes that better fit the lifestyle of adults whose children are now out on their own. So some fine-tuning of property listings will be in order. The agents at Weichman Realtors expect more Costa Mesa property listings to start emphasizing smaller footprints and some other basics that reflect some of those changing lifestyle priorities.

Cost of living factors can be expected to replace good employment opportunities as a leading geographical consideration. Since most retirees will find themselves shifting to a fixed or limited income, property listings may start to include their area’s score on the National Cost of Living Index. The NCLI is based on an average of 100: cities with a cost of living index of 80 to 90 are usually considered favorable for retirees. We can expect more local property listings to highlight it.

Weather and seasonal factors should take new prominence. There is a good reason why previous generations of retirees chose homes located in the western Sunbelt states and the southeastern region. Many retirees prefer warm weather and temperate climates. There are physical and medical advantages – not to mention added months of golf, tennis and beach going!

Proximity to family members is the one perpetual consideration that won’t be changing anytime soon. Grandparents cannot fully dote if the kids are all the way across the country. Yet indicators have been growing that their more mobile mindset has at least some seniors compromising in this regard: property listings that note major airports close by are growing in number. (Call it ‘portable doting.’)

In the end, the choice of a new home that fits anyone’s later years is largely a matter of what you and your spouse want out of the freedom of your latter years. For clients who are selling, it’s a basic part of our service to know how to create Costa Mesa property listings that emphasize the features currently rate highest with prospective buyers – baby boomers or not!
