Lisa Loper of the Scott Loper Team explains a frequently misunderstood term in the real estate market.
We frequently have buyers asking us about pre-foreclosure homes that they found on the internet. There are many sites that will give consumers this type of information. Most of these homes are not listed for sale, but some buyers want to know if they can still see the property with the possibility of buying it. Pre-foreclosure simply means that a homeowner has fallen behind on their mortgage payments. And while a foreclosure may eventually happen, at the current time, the home is still rightfully owned by the mortgagor (i.e. homeowner). It does NOT mean that the home is available for sale. In fact, that home may never be available for sale. In most cases, a homeowner does NOT want to sell OR lose their home to a foreclosure. The …

Lisa Loper of the Scott Loper Team shares an example why sellers need to be careful and not be drawn in by something that sounds too good to be true
There are many ways to sell a house: listing it with a REALTOR©, for sale by owner, the “We Buy Houses” quick sale businesses, real estate auctions, find a friend or relative willing to buy it ... When it comes to selling, there is no magic pill. Time and again, no one is going to pay more than market value for your home but you can be sure, many people will gladly take a home off your hands if they can get it for well below market value. As a seller, it is critical to know the true market value for your home so 1) you don’t end up sitting on it forever waiting for it to sell at an unrealistic price and 2) so you don’t “give it away” by selling it for significantly less than it is worth. Buyers need to be equally as careful so they do …
