Alameda County Foreclosures & Short Sales

Buying a foreclosed or short sale property in Alameda County involves patience, care, and, sometimes, a little luck; but at the end of the day, short sales and foreclosures have become a viable choice for homebuyers looking for a good buy in East Bay real estate.

Distressed properties offer a tremendous opportunity for investors and traditional homebuyers in search of a good deal in Alameda County real estate.  For the financially stable investor who has cash to spare, it is possible to find a bargain REO and fix it up, then rent it out or sell it at a profit, much as flippers did during the heyday of the housing market.  More commonly, the bargain bin prices that short sale and foreclosed homes occasionally offer provide both the first-time homebuyer and the homeowner looking to move up the opportunity to realize their dreams at an affordable price.

There is not a part of the East Bay that has not been affected by the slump in home prices.  There are literally hundreds of distressed single-family homes and condos on the market throughout Alameda County, from fixers to estates, in tony neighborhoods and busy communities in the Berkeley Hills or Livermore, Hayward or Fremont.  While the process of negotiation in purchasing a short sale or REO may sometimes be prolonged, for many, the end result of owning an affordable home in the East Bay is well worth the effort.
