Compare the price of the home with the other foreclosures in the area using the comparison websites and short list the homes falling in your budget price. Make a visit to the homes you have short listed and check for the internal and external aspects of the home. See for the livability factors. Take a professional real estate agent along with you in case you feel the need. Check if the water facilities, electrical fittings are properly available.
