Understanding Estate Auctions New England

Posted on 26 March 2012


The process of buying a home today is different for each home buyer. For instance, there are some home buyers who decide to buy a home before they actually find a property that they love. These types of buyers are most likely interested in securing a home loan while the interest rates are at their current record lows. Plus, the majority of local real estate markets around the United States still boast great low-priced properties to choose from, making today a great time to make this purchase. There are, however, other home buyers who decide to look at properties available for sale or estate auctions New England on a whim.

These buyers did not consciously decide to buy a home before looking at properties. As a result, these property buyers are very unlikely to have established financing and are therefore not prepared to make a purchase at that present moment. When these “spur of the moment” home buyers find a property that they simply cannot live without, they will need to acquire financing from a credit union or bank in their area before they are able to put down an offer. If the buyers do not have a real estate agent in mind, they will also need to establish a relationship with an agent before making the offer. Most individual home sellers today will not accept unsolicited offers from home buyers who do not have a real estate agent. This is because these unsolicited offers are not as secure as offers made from buyers who are represented by an agent, therefore increasing the chance that the buyers change their minds at the last minute. This would leave the home sellers in a lurch, as they had expected to sell their property to those buyers!

When property buyers today visit a property that is being sold in estate auctions New England, they will most likely be confused about the general format of this type of sale. A property will be sold in an estate auction, rather than a regular property sale, when the original homeowner experiences financial difficulty and is unable to pay off their various debts. When this occurs, the homeowner may be required to declare bankruptcy and have their home and estate repossessed by various lenders. When this occurs, the bank or credit union who now has ownership of the property and its various holdings will sell these items in an estate auctions New England event. When attending an estate auction, the seller will accept offers for the property itself as well as the various possessions seen within the property. For instance, if the original homeowner was a very dedicated art collector, the paintings, sculptures, and other collectibles within the home will be available for sale.

The lure of estate auctions New England today is that real estate investors, collectors, and home buyers will be able to place bids on the items within the large estate that hold their interest. Many art collectors and antique shop owners will travel the country in search of such events. With their set budget, the investor or collector will often be able to find many vintage items or priceless artworks by attending estate auctions. A real estate investor will also frequent estate auctions in the hopes of securing ownership of properties for low prices. Because the lender who has repossessed the estate wishes to liquidate these assets as soon as possible, they will often only accept cash offers for the estate. This means that a property buyer will be unable to purchase a property through an estate auction with a home loan or mortgage agreement.
