While many people are still wary in making the move to purchase a preforeclosure or foreclosed home, the last month of the year is actually the ideal time to make that purchase. Not only as a gift to oneself, but also family in time for the holiday season, but it also presents a strategic move before things start looking up for the new year.

Location is an important consideration for potential homebuyers.
