Pending or sometimes called pre-foreclosure is the first stage of the foreclosure process. It’s great time to strike a deal with a homeowner who is no longer meeting the mortgage obligations.

About 30 Days after the foreclosing lender has taken possession of the defaulting property, it usually finds it’s way back on the market. It is then listed as a REO (Real Estate Owned). If you go back about 30 days to our previous months pending foreclosure list, you can get an idea of what is about to hit the market. Not all "pending foreclosures" are foreclosed on. Sometimes a successful approach is to negotiate a deal with the previous owner just before the "pending foreclosure" goes to the courthouse steps. Another tactic is to negotiate a deal directly with the new owner before it hits the market. Once the "pending foreclosure" has gone through the foreclosure process, it usually ends up on the MLS, but sometimes it is just listed by the financial institution.  Call if I can be of assistance in finding and negotiating a deal. 

If you would like to receive our free monthly e-mail “SSI Deals” full of pending-foreclosures, REOs, short sales and properties for sale you can suscribe below. Our list includes inventory not yet available on the MLS websites. Our strategy is to overload you with valuable information and great service. Our hope is you will let us negotiate your deal. Your e-mail address will be kept confidential, you can cancel at any time by clicking edit profile at the bottom of any of our monthly news letters.  We look forward in providing you with valuable information to help with your decision making process.
