Irresistibly Priced Home Buying Options
The Columbia real estate listings auctions presently include 546 foreclosed homes and houses for sale. However, these properties have a low median listed price of an unbelievable $65,000 only. In striking contrast, the other 2,840 MLS and FSBO houses that figure in the Columbia property auctions in the coming days bear a median asking price of $165,000. The seized properties available at the foreclosure auctions in the US have proved tempting to the potential homebuyers because their discounts over market prices invariably range between 10 percent and 50 percent. It appears that the foreclosed properties in Columbia can be purchased at rock-bottom prices that are almost one-third of the typical market prices.
The eclectic range of residences among the foreclosed properties being auctioned in the Columbia property auctions has naturally drawn crowds of eager buyers. Buyers get to choose from a dazzling array of condos, apartments, single-family homes, multifamily setups, imposing duplexes, farmlands and vacant lands. Even in a country racked by government foreclosures and sliding listed prices at the ongoing foreclosure auctions in cities all across the US, the median asking price in Columbia of a mere $65,000 is apparently as low as it can get. You couldn’t hope to wait for a more opportune place, time or pricing to get that dream home that you’ve wanted to buy for years! Chris Cordoni, Steve Joye, Patsy Hancock, Bill Graham and Robert Mandel are the leading property brokers in the city and you might be well advised to hire professional help in your home-acquisition process.
