Hudson & Marshall Will Auction Variety of Homes Valued from $54,900 to over $400,000
PHOENIX, Feb. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Home prices continue to fall in states like Arizona where the real estate market is brimming over in foreclosures, giving buyers an opportunity to catch deals on properties. According to the S&P/Case Shiller Home Price Indices, as of November 2010, Phoenix home prices have dropped 53.9% from their peak in June 2006. Hudson & Marshall will auction over 400 bank-owned homes February 12th and 13th at 1:00 p.m. at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort.
"The surge in foreclosure inventory in states like Arizona has driven up consumer interest in attending our auctions. We're seeing larger crowds of buyers at our auctions looking for bank-owned homes because they feel the homes are a great value for the money whether they need improvements or are in move-in ready condition," remarked Dave Webb, principal, Hudson & Marshall.
Buyers will be required to make a $2,500 cash or certified check deposit for each property for which they are the winning bidder. Homes come with an insurable title and all sales will close within 30-45 days. Buyers may secure financing with the lender of their choice prior to closing; however, closing is not contingent upon financing.
All properties auctioned by Hudson & Marshall are sold "as-is" and buyers should inspect properties before placing any bids. Homes can be viewed during the open house scheduled Saturday, February 5th from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. or by contacting listing agents to schedule appointments. Complete property details and additional information may be found at www.hudsonandmarshall.com or by calling 866-539-4172.
Interested buyers should take advantage of some helpful tips before they attend any auction. Buyers should view properties beforehand to see the neighborhoods and conditions properties are in to determine how much the homes are worth to them. It is also a good idea for buyers to read the terms and conditions of the auction carefully to ensure they understand the requirements for purchase and closing. Finally, it is always a good idea for buyers to secure their financing before attending an auction so they know how much they can afford to bid on a home.
Prior to auction, buyers can purchase property online by visiting the website and clicking on the Bid-Now icon. Sellers typically respond to offers within 24 hours. This is a reserve auction, which means sellers have the right to accept, reject or counter any bid; however, in past auctions conducted by Hudson & Marshall, the majority of offers have been accepted.
