There are different types of Myrtle Beach foreclosures for sale that you might want to take a look at when you begin your buying process.  While the Myrtle Beach foreclosures for sale are out there, perhaps you will also want to investigate those that have not actually be foreclosed on yet and are a short sale, or for sale by the owner to try and prevent a foreclosure.  All three options can be easily handled by a qualified and professional Myrtle Beach real estate agent.

The first step in the process of a foreclosure can be when the owner is behind in their payments to the bank and are trying to sell the house prior to the bank “repossessing” the house and then being listed as one of the Myrtle Beach foreclosures for sale.  While these type of properties are difficult to find, they are out there.  Many times an owner will be willing to lower the price of the home and work with the bank and potential buyer to avoid the foreclosure process.  The seller then works like a middle man to facilitate the buying process between the bank and the potential buyer.  This process can take a little time, and not always works out in the favor of the seller – often times this process depends on the amount of money owned on the property and how far off the difference owed and potential selling price can be.

The second step in the foreclosure process is what’s called a “Short Sale”.  This occurs when the bank is willing to sell the property for less than what is owed to eliminate it from their books as quickly as they can.  Short sale properties can be found rather quickly on a list of Myrtle Beach foreclosures for sale as they are usually noted in the MLS system that then are bank owned.  This process is best handled by a Myrtle Beach real estate agent that is familiar with and has experience in the short sale process.  Banks can take their time in deciding whether they want to accept or reject an offer, so be prepared to be patient when going through the process with a Myrtle Beach foreclosure for sale.

When looking for an exceptional deal on a Myrtle Beach foreclosure for sale, often times the old saying “Good things come to those who wait” comes true.  The process can be long, frustrating and even disappointing, but in the end can mean savings and quite possibly a property that you will enjoy for many years to come!
