For the past 20 years, Wilkins & Associates has had a specialized department that lists and sells foreclosed homes throughout Monroe, Pike, Wayne and Carbon counties. The majority of the foreclosure business is listed through The Dennis Farrelly Team who are located in the Bushkill office on Route 209 in Bushkill, PA (570-588-3440). Dennis Farrelly, Realtor head of The Dennis Farrelly Team, along with his team members, Thomas Farrelly, Realtor, Kathleen Farrelly, Admin Asst; and Donna Sorrentino, Licensed Admin Asst, represent over 30 lenders in the sale of their foreclosed properties.
Said Thomas R. Wilkins, CEO, “While foreclosures are not the prettiest part of the real estate market, we do handle and close a phenomenal amount of foreclosure sales. Our inventory of homes includes modest single family homes with in-town locations, primary homes in the outlying areas, vacation homes in some of the best vacation communities throughout the Pocono Mountains and almost any other type of house, condo or townhome that you might think of.”
The best way to buy a foreclosure is to ask your Realtor to add you to what’s called REALTIME DATA or recurring emails that will generate an email into your own special portal and notify you the instant that a foreclosure comes onto the market either through our office, another REO broker partner, or even competing brokers in another MLS system. Remember to keep the criteria for your new home generic and not too specific; you’ll increase the number of homes that you are able to view online.
Then, when you find that home that you think will fit your criteria, any of our full time Realtors are very well versed in protecting you in the purchase of that bank owned property.
Remember, the foreclosure market does move fast, but there very well may be a bargain for you if you are diligent in your search and are prepared to act quickly. And investors, well what can we say. We have some of the best investment properties through our foreclosure department than you could ever ask for. Whether you are re-selling or “flipping” the home or using your purchase as a rental unit, we have the expertise to give you a hand.
And don’t forget, ask your Agent about our Independent Family of Home Buying Services. A service that’s available only to those persons who purchase a home through Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wilkins & Associates. Let us help you with title and settlement services, home warranties, discounts from local businesses and a whole lot more.
