Buying a Foreclosure home in Hagerstown

The Washington metropolitan area largely escaped the problems plaguing other parts of the country until late 2007, according to a report the George Mason University's Center for Regional Analysis for COG. The region, which includes the District and parts of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, now has one of the fastest-growing foreclosure rates in the country. Areas with higher levels of growth are more affordable and attract first-time homebuyers more likely to have a subprime loan, which often have higher interest rates, according to Gaithersburg-based Realtor Matt Rowland.

Now could be the time to buy a Hagerstown foreclosure. But, buying foreclosures is not easy. Recent Maryland legislation has increased the length of time it takes to foreclose on a property by quite a bit. Foreclosures are sold ďas-isĒ with no warranties. And, many times, you are not allowed access to the property to inspect it. Get professional assistance so you end up with the fewest surprises when you bid on the house at the auction.
