"A terrific book that should be read by all--novice and pro alike."--Carolyn A. Weber, Vice President, Century 21 of the Northeast

"Do you want to buy a house or other real estate below market value? If so, read this book."--Robert J. Bruss, Syndicated Real Estate Columnist

Written by one of America's most experienced real estate professionals, Melissa Kollen-Rice's bestselling guide offers:

  • Sources of available properties - from government agencies, public auctions, banks, and delinquent homeowners
  • Innovative methods for financing foreclosures with little or no cash
  • Tips on conducting an inspection, determining a property's value, and uncovering hidden costs in advance
  • Proven techniques that help readers navigate the 'foreclosure jungle' and avoid costly mistakes along the way
  • Strategies for buying foreclosures before an auction, at an auction, and after an auction
  • Critical information that banks can't tell you about the foreclosures in their inventories

A foreclosure purchase is a great way to buy property at a below-market price, keep it as a long-term residence, rent it out to others, or fix it up and sell it for a profit. Packed with user-friendly worksheets, checklists, and contact directories, this fully updated and revised edition reflects current trends and regulations. Whether you are a novice or a professional foreclosure enthusiast, Buying Real Estate Foreclosures provides you with everything you need.

I had the original book from Ms. Kollen-Rice and I would have given that four stars. This new updated book is outstanding and I am convinced that nobody knows more about buying foreclosures than Ms. Kollen-Rice. Hearing the actual facts about buying foreclosures is refreshing as compared to the b.s. that the informercials spew. I can't wait until she does seminars in my area.

I have been involved in real estate for over 20 years and have purchased several books and tapes. This is by far the best and most honest book that I have read about buying foreclosures. I found the author very knowledgeable and the forms very useful. Definitely worth much more than is being charged.

I was always interested in purchasing investment houses and now my dream has come true. I watched those informercials and was all excited about buying a house for no money down. Thanks to this book, I learned several mistakes that I could have made that could have cost me a small fortune. I'm happy to report that with the help of this book, I now own two forclosures and am looking to buying more. Thank you so much Ms. Kollen.

I could've spent time reading something that could've really help me. I thought that this book was going to enlighten me about some unknown secret with foreclosure, but I was wrongly mistaken. Everything thats in this book I already knew, but could've learned from the internet. I was just expecting more inseek about the how abouts of purchasing foreclose properties. I'm sorry but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone!!!

Unless you are a 'total Greenhorn' or fell off the turnup truck yesterday DON'T BUY IT!!! There were no reviews about the book when I bought it, so I spent a lengthy time reading about the book. The advertisement about the book is totally untrue and a person could learn more in 15 minutes searching the internet or going down to the county public trustees office and that is all for free. I am sorry to say, but it was a total waste of my money. A kindergarten foreclosure class would teach you more
