CT Foreclosure

Updated on May 20, 2010

Looking to buy a house in Connecticut? You may find the best deals by going over some CT foreclosure listings. We have seen an increase of the listings due to the recent economic downturn and the housing crisis. You will have no problem of availing a house of your choice at less than its original price.

Before anything else, you need to have a clear idea on which area of Connecticut you wish to buy a home. This will get you to focus your search and will save you time. The cities of Hartford and Bridgeport has many listings in the recent years but I'm sure there are many suburbs listings as well if you want to settle there.

 However, before you get carried away with a listing of your dream house at a very good price, you have to get your facts first. If you hailed from a different state, you have to get yourself acquainted with ins and outs of the trade the way it's done in Connecticut. They may have different laws and statutes governing purchase of a foreclosed property compared to where you're from.

Another thing is that when you browsing through listings online or in the newspapers, you may not be given all the necessary information for you to decide on a purchase. That's why it is imperative that you have a look at the interior of the house so you go into the transaction with eyes wide open. If you don't want to get yourself troubled with home fixes and and perhaps even extensive future home maintenance, then, it is best to stay away from houses that require some work done. And financially, it may cost you more in the long run so a lot of consideration has to go into that too.

You also have the option of buying a house at an auction. However, in this process you will be required to deposit a certain amount of money. This is to ensure that you will follow through with the transaction you bid on. And in many cases, for whatever reason, you will not be able to get a refund should you decide not to go through with the transaction.

In buying a Connecticut foreclosure, you have to go over financing options. There are many ways to obtain financing for home buyers but you need to get your homework done if you wish to get better terms and rate. One option is to browse the internet. There are many mortgage company offering free quotes online. You need to ask questions and get them to offer you their best rate available.

You may also want to check with your local bank. You need to keep in mind the requirements as well as the terms they are offering so you can compare each and choose according to the merits they offer. However, the ideal option nowadays is probably through FHA if you don't have sufficient funds for a down payment. For just around 3% down payment you will be able to purchase a house with an FHA loan. That's a good deal especially for first time home buyers.

Whichever process you wish to undertake in purchasing CT foreclosure it is still best to take precautionary measures in place. And the good thing is, with the situation today, home buyers have that luxury.
