Investors and Homebuyers Resources
In many cases, for a foreclosure investor, buying a property in lis pendens can prove to be a better deal than buying at auction. Lis pendens properties are often associated with "no money down" deals, because the unique situation of the property owner creates opportunities for creative deal making.
Properties in pre foreclosure give homebuyers and investors a great chance to save or generate money in the real estate market. The owner of a property in lis pendens might be motivated to sell the property before it gets scheduled for a foreclosure auction. This way, if the lender agrees, the three parties can arrange a short sale. The short sale process would be mutually favorable for the parties as it requires less time and it saves the owner from a painful auction process.
