If you’re looking for a great “deal” on a home it can be possible to find one if you know where to look. These deals are not as easy to find as they once were, but if you’re willing to do the work, they can be found. Your best bet is to start by looking for homes that are overpriced, leaving them on the market for a lengthy period of time playing “catch up” while other similar homes in the right price range are “flying off the shelves,” so to speak.
Another, possibly easier way to find a good deal is to search out homes that don’t show well. For example, homes that are cluttered, cosmetically outdated, or smell like smoke or animals can sit for months on the market. If you’re willing to put a few weeks of work and can afford to put some money into the home, you can get a great deal and a good deal of equity in your home from the get-go.
If you see homes that sit on the market and become “stale listings” as opportunities rather than problems, you can walk away with the deal you are looking for.
