  2. Hi Jay,
    First of all I would like to thank you for being so generous in sharing a lot of information regarding real estate investing thru your blogs. I’ve been here sitting for hours already just absorbing all the info I can get from your blogs and I know there’s still a lot to learn.
    My husband and I are planning to invest in a multi-door apartment. At first we were planning to build a new one but after reading your blogs on foreclosed properties I’m contemplating on maybe just investing in an old foreclosed property. Maybe I could save a lot from this than building a new one. 
    Actually I have negotiated for a foreclosed vacant lot already with a certain bank but cancelled it because I was pissed off by the bank officer handling the property. She was totally inefficient and arrogant in dealing with clients. So much so for that. What I’m concerned with actually is I’m confused with the minimum bid indicated in their listings. If ever I want to participate in an auction, can I bid below this minimum bid. Is it still possible to go really low. Since when I submitted to bid for the lot I mentioned earlier, they told me that the lowest they can approved is 10% of the minimum bid, which I think is still high considering that this is already a foreclosed property.
    Can you please enlighten me on this. How low can I go? I read in one of your blogs that you even bid 44% lower. But then I got another feedback from the bank I deatl with. Your feedback would be most appreciated.
    Thanks a lot. And….more power….may people like you be blessed even more!!!!!


    1. Hi Czarina,

      Sorry for the late reply! You’re welcome and thank you for taking time to drop by and read my blog. I really appreciate it!

      With regards to my bid that was 44% lower, if I remember correctly, that was made possible because it turned out that the property’s mortgage amount (based on a traceback on the title) was around 50% lower the minimum bid price.

      This however is only possible if a bank is flexible and is willing to sell a property at a price that will be enough to let them recover the loan amount plus any expenses they incurred. Nowadays, a lot of banks sell their foreclosed properties at the current appraised value.

      I would suggest you stick to the market value of the property. So even if the bank will only accept a 10% discount off the minimum bid, if this turns out to be 40% below market value (or the value you are targeting) of other comparable properties, then I suppose the property deserves a second look.

      I hope this helps! Thanks and may God bless you and your family!
