In 2011, over 15% of all homes sales in this area were a bank-owned property. In 2010 it was just shy of 30%.
This leaves the opportunity for you to get a big bargain open. But the truth is, it's not easy to do. You have to know what you are doing, or it can end up costing you more than buying a non-bank owned property.
