Foreclosed Homes in Columbia SC

  Foreclosed homes and short sale listings are populating the MLS and real estate agencies are constantly changing their business model to accommodate clients that are looking for foreclosed homes for sale in Columbia SC.  Real Estate Owned Properties, commonly abbreviated as "REO Property", is an entirely different process than a traditional owner occupant transaction.  It usually takes several days longer to get a response of whether or not your offer has been accepted, or declined.  More often than not, your real estate agency will be dealing with an online system and not have a direct line of communication with the person in charge of the particular asset that you are offering to purchase.  There is a system in place to streamline the process for the asset company and they insist that you abide by their procedure.  Buying foreclosed properties demand time, patience, and compliance.  Our agency is involved in these types of transactions on a regular basis and we understand the basic techniques that asset companies are accustomed to.  If you decide to buy a foreclosed home in Columbia, please remember that real estate agents are constantly pushing to get an offer ratified and a settlement time scheduled.  Asset management companies also have their own procedures they must abide by, so please be patient and understanding of our position in these purchases.

Lots - Land - Acreage

Columbia SC Waterfront Property

Our company was built on land sales and we have been in business focusing on this niche market since the 1960's. Just recently, we have tapped into the excellent online marketing and research that has been continually growing since the beginning of the millenium. Our traditional face-to-face style that we have been accustomed to has made a transition by involving the newest technology to better suit land and home buyers that prefer to begin their real estate search in the convenience of their own home or office. Buying land can be challenging and overwhelming for investors that have no experience with this aspect of real estate. Waterfront Property, Investment property, building lots, recreational hunting acreage, equestrian property, mini farms and timber tracts are very popular in rural areas around the midlands of Columbia SC. We have years of experience and a few strategies that will help you have a smooth experience when purchasing your land.  An inexperienced agent may cause more harm than good if they are not familiar with the proper procedures of purchasing land.  It is a completely different process than home buying and our experienced agents know how to protect our clients with strategies that may save you thousands of dollars.
