Great quality of homes for low prices
The Government Foreclosures have many homes put up for various property auctions at very low prices. These are great homes well designed and perfectly fitted with all the comforts of luxury homes. Because the owners were not able to pay up the mortgage towards the property they were forced to sell these homes so that their debt could be cleared with the foreclosure sale. These properties are seized by the government and then put up for auctions. The foreclosure authorities are not interested in keeping these homes, but would rather get rid of them as fast as possible and recover some of the mortgage amount from the buyers. To make sure that these sales happen as quickly as possible the auctioneers put them up for fairly low bidding amounts and people grab these prime properties which are going so cheap. Some of these homes go for prices which are less than 50% of the market values of the properties.

What is a foreclosure sale?
The bank or financial organization that has loaned money to the buyer is able to recover their money when the buyer defaults in payments towards the loan by the foreclosure of the loan. The property is seized by the bank or the lender and then after filing the documents which are necessary for such a procedure go forward with the foreclosure formalities. The sale is then put through to recover the amount which the owner owes the bank by the government of the state, an attorney or a trustee.
These sales are usually handed over to auctioneers as the government does not have the infrastructure to handle it, and as the auctions are open to the public there are more number of people involved in bidding for these properties and seeking to buy them.
