California Foreclosure Auctions



Los Angeles Foreclosure Auction

At foreclosure auctions, foreclosed homes are often sold at a 20-30% discount to non-foreclosed homes. Many of these foreclosed homes are sold to all-cash buyers, predominately savvy investors who will buy only at a substantial discount to what "retail" buyers will pay with the help of bank financing. Sometimes, though, two or more buyers who wish to live in the home will bid against each other and drive the price up close to its fair market value, or even higher. That is why you need someone like Tad Thormodsgaard and his South Bay real estate team to help you avoid overpaying and, ideally, get a great bargain.
