Daytona Beach Foreclosures

Daytona Beach Foreclosures – What You Should Know

Yes, you can get a great deal on foreclosures in Daytona Beach. But, it’s not easy. Here are a few things you should know about foreclosures:

  • You need to be right on top of the property as it comes on the market.
  • Good properties, in good locations at a low price will probably sell for more than the asking price. Yes, there are bidding wars on some of these properties.
  • Foreclosures are sold as-is. You must get an inspection and make the contract contingent on that inspection.
  • You will need proof of funds or financing to submit a contract.
  • You may only get one chance to bid in a competitive environment.

It’s unlikely that you’re going to get a great buy without putting some work into it. It is a competitive situation, especially in the lower price ranges where over 70% of all sales in Daytona Beach happen – under $200,000. You need to be dialed into properties as they come on to the market. You need to have patience and a high tolerance for frustration when dealing with REO (real estate owned) properties. Banks are struggling with the shear volume of properties they have foreclosed.

As an alternative, we have some beautiful duplexes in Ormond Beach that are very competitively priced. We are real estate professionals so we know values and have priced our duplexes to sell. Give Lynn a call at 386-566-7503 to find out more.

Daytona Beach Housing Alternative for College Students and Parents

Daytona Beach Alternatives to for College Students and Parents

Daytona Beach is home to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona State College and Bethune Cookman University. The University of Central Florida has a campus here and Florida State University medical school has a campus here. While many students stay in college dorms and off-campus rental apartments and homes, some smart parents buy a home while their children at attending local schools.

There can be some very nice advantages to buying an Ormond Beach or Daytona beach duplex for students. First room and board is going to be about $30,000 or more for four years. That money is sunk and gone after it’s paid. Dorm rooms are also very small. They do offer the convenience of being on-campus, but at the cost of space and privacy.

Some parents take the route of buying a home for students while their attending college. The economics can be impressive when you consider that a good part of the $30,000 or goes toward paying down the mortgage or stays in the parents bank account. It gets even better when roommates share the property with the student. Rent is collected and this goes towards expenses. Rent from the roommate can pay for the entire cost of carrying the property. Then at the end of four years, the property can be sold, or you can keep it as a rental property or vacation property.

A duplex can be even better for many students. Your son or daughter can live in one side, while the roommates live in the other. This gives complete privacy while still having the benefit of roommates paying rent. It can be a beautiful thing. Your tax advisor can give you some additional good reasons for buying a home for your child to live in while they’re in school.

Daytona State College has no on-campus housing, while Embry-Riddle and Bethune Cookman do not have enough for all students. It’s very likely that your child will live in off-campus housing during their college years in Daytona Beach. Why not consider purchasing a duplex and walking away will less of a dent in your bank account after four years.

FSBO – For Sale By Owner Daytona Beach

FSBO – For Sale By Owner Daytona Beach

You are a home buyer looking for the right home in the Daytona Beach area. Is there an advantage to buying a for sale by owner home?

The answer is it depends, but in this market with lots of inventory, short sales and foreclosures driving down prices, the advantage of buying a FSBO home is probably less.

We are real estate professionals. On this site we showcase Ormond Beach duplexes. Being real estate professionals, we are fully aware of market values. If you’re going to go through a bank or finance company for a foreclosure or short sale, the negotiating process can be agonizingly long (especially for short sales). If you are in the position that you need to find a home quickly, or an impatient person, you may want to avoid short sales completely. Foreclosures generally are a quicker turn around, but dealing with the owner of non-distressed properties might offer the fastest route.

Dealing with owners of FSBO owner properties can be difficult, but it can also be very pleasant. The important point is that you are looking for the best value in a properties that meets your needs. Whether that’s a FSBO or through a real estate agent, keep that point in mind.
