Boise Foreclosure Situation TodayPosted by Kevin Hughes on Monday, August 6th, 2012 at 10:27am.
Boise foreclosures are much less available today for a variety of reasons. The economy has improved so fewer homeowners are struggling to pay their mortgages. Also, banks are not as willing to put a home in foreclosure because of the time and cost involved, so many underwater homeowners are able to do short sales instead of foreclosing. Banks and homeowners are receiving aid to help Idahoans that are falling behind so they don't lose their home. Idaho is a state where the banks don't have to prove in court that homeowners are at default on their mortgage, so the banks are able to move their property through the process quicker than states with different systems. It appears that the bulk of the foreclosures caused by the 2008 recession have been put on the market and even though there are slight upticks in Boise foreclosure numbers every few months, they are not substantial.
Boise Foreclosure Market
Buying Foreclosure PropertyMost buyers that are looking for Boise foreclosures know, to some extent, what the process entails. The bank sets the price for the foreclosure property and won't sell it, especially now, for an absurdly low price, as they want to get as much of their money back as possible. The buyer is, of course, buying the property as is, so that can be a bit of an issue depending on the home or the buyer. Additionally, the process is a bit lengthy and has more ins-and-outs than the traditional single-family home purchase. With all that said, having an experienced, client-focused Hughes Group realtor is absolutely necessary if you want your home buying experience to go smoothly. They will personally help you in innumerable ways to make sure you are successful, and in today's hotly contested foreclosure market, they are indispensible.

You will have to act quickly and effectively, and your agent will give you over-the-top service to fight for you.
