Distressed Properties are the ones that are not yet foreclosed but are still listed for sale by the mortgagee, since they know that they will not be able to keep up to the payments in order to save their house. There can be a lot of reasons why a person ends up in this situation, it can be because he did not handle his finances well, lost his job, illness of a family member, death of the earning member in the family and a lot more. All these reasons are the main cause that people who thought that they will be able to repay the bank the money that they took, find it difficult to continue.

However, if you are interested in Distressed Properties, so that you can take advantage of the financial gain that you will be able to get then it is important that you should have an open eye in the market. You should be able to locate the properties ahead of time so that you get time to research on them. On the other hand you will have to understand that finding the Distressed Properties is not a matter of opening a newspaper and getting all the information about them. You will be required to go through the public records to get to know about them but at the same time you can also look for them via internet, all you are required to do is to search them with the help of Sate and zip code.

It is also important that you should be a little aware of the market situations and should be able to take a wise decision about the properties that you would like to research on. The first and the foremost is that it will not be practically possible for you to search 100 properties or pay an agent some money to do so, unless you plan on buying 50 or 75 of them. Conducting research on a lot of properties will increase the time and money that you will be spending on these Distressed Properties. In order to save some time you can hire someone who has knowledge about them. Your agent will help you know about the actual worth of the property, the renovation the house requires, taxes and liens if there are any due and so on, in short he will be able to tell you the amount of money that you will have to spend and the money you will be saving.
