I am sure all of you have heard about the increasing amount of foreclosed homes entering the real estate market in Lincoln, NE. So what does this mean for all of here in Lincoln?

Well for buyers it means there are a lot of "great deals" to be had out there! Many of these foreclosed homes can be purchased a price far less than the fair market value. However beware... some of these homes do need a lot of T.L.C. to get back into shape. You may or may not want to get into that sort of situation. There are still some real gems out there though. If you are interested in finding one of those great deals, contact us today for our weekly foreclosure "best buy" list!

For those of you who are unfortunate enough to be facing foreclosure, don't lose hope. You do have options. There are several options in fact such as the making home affordable programs that the government has developed to help families facing foreclosure in these tough economic times. There are several other options as well which would best be explained by a real estate professional. So please contact me if you are in a similar situation so that we can help you avoid a foreclosure on your record.
