Free Alabama foreclosure listings appearing at real estate websites offer you the detailed information related foreclosed properties in Alabama. This list consists of both commercial and residential properties foreclosed by banks and government. Non-repayment of property tax and home equity loans are the prime causes of foreclosure. However, bank owned properties are the predominant ones in foreclosure listings. These properties can be foreclosed and sold with and without judicial intervention. Alabama is a title theory state and hence, non-judicial foreclosure is the common process here. It is also known as power of sale.

Power of sale is an integral clause of loans against property. As per this clause, the lender is a lien holder of the property till the borrower does not repay the loan amount with interest completely. The loan is backed by mortgage or a deed of trust. When the borrower breaches the trust the lender initiates foreclosure to get back his money. However, it is not an instant process. The lender has to give ample notice and time to the borrower for repayment of the borrowed amount. As judicial intervention is not required for this process the measures applied here are more stringent.

Foreclosed properties in Alabama are also popularly called as investment properties by the investors. The logic behind it is that these properties are sold at a cheaper price compared to fresh ones. These properties might need some renovation. But once you renovate them you can sell them at a higher price.

You can buy these properties through the process of auction. All information related to the auction can be found from newspaper displays and real estate websites. Before auction, all prospective bidders have to deposit a security. The auction takes place all week days (except court holiday). Here the highest bidder has the right to possess the property subject to payment of the rest amount within the grace period. Otherwise his deposit is canceled.

While buying properties from free foreclosure listings in Alabama you need to keep certain things in mind. The first step in this regard is inspecting the concerned property to assess the current status of it and required renovation. You need to make sure that the previous owner has vacated the property. Financing option is limited to buy these properties. Hence make sure that you have the required cash or you can arrange them within the grace period.
