Grand Rapids Foreclosure List

So you would like a list of Grand Rapids, Michigan Area Foreclosures! Sorry it’s not that easy. You can go online and pay some money on different websites and they will provide you a list of addresses that are foreclosures in the Grand Rapids area. This list can be helpful as a starting place, but doesn’t help you in the purchasing of the home.

I can provide you with that same list for FREE if you work with me. Why would I want you to work through me? Why will I not just give you a list of the foreclosures in Grand Rapids? Because I don’t think that serves you in the best manner I can.

There are so many homes on the market and most of the great deals are not foreclosures. The media is telling people that the best homes for the dollar are foreclosures, which sometimes they can be, but often they are in poor condition. You may be able to find a non-foreclosure for the same price or just a little more and you don’t have to put near the amount of work into it.

Yes, if you are looking for a home to make $15,000 and up in one year by spending a lot of time and money to get it into proper living conditions, a foreclosure could be for you! But if your looking for a home that you can move into with little to no work and make $15,000 on it over a couple of years with light improvements than a foreclosure is typically not the best route.

There are exceptions to every rule, so please don’t think you can find a foreclosure in Grand Rapids that you can move right into or a regular listing home that you could buy and sell next year for more money. Rather these are basic guidelines I offer to my clients as we work through the process of finding the perfect home for their needs.

If you want a list of foreclosures in your area, I am more than willing to provide this to you, but please allow me to ask: Why do you want a foreclosure, so I know how best to serve and help you with the process.
