Lexington Foreclosed Homes and Houses for Sale

Foreclosure Auctions: Invitingly Discounted Prices

Lexington currently has 360 foreclosed homes and houses for sale at its scheduled foreclosure auctions in the near future. These residences have a median listed price of “just” $99,448, that is, so far as properties go. However, there are also 1,813 other FSBO {for sale by owner} homes to be sold through property auctions, and these sport a median listed price of $184,900. The nearly double price that the other properties have over the foreclosed homes strikingly illustrates the almost 50 percent discount that prospective homebuyer get at the foreclosure auctions. The frenzied crowds and fiercely competitive bidding at the foreclosure auctions are, therefore, quite predictable.
