Auction of Over 300 Foreclosures in DC, Maryland and Virginia

Hudson & Marshall will auction over 300 bank-owned foreclosures in the greater DC area and cities throughout Maryland and Virginia February 3rd-7th. All homes come with guaranteed title insurance paid for by the sellers, ensuring there are no back taxes or liens on the properties. Bidders will be required to make a deposit of $5,000 in the form of cash or certified check for each property which they are the winning bid.

“The massive volume and condition of the foreclosures entering the market daily has dramatically changed buyer’s perception about purchasing Real Estate Owned (REO) property,” remarked Dave Webb, principal, Hudson & Marshall. “In this turbulent economy, where everyone is watching each dollar, a foreclosure property in good condition is very attractive to prospective buyers looking to save money,” added Webb.

According to Realtytrac(R), 2.3 million properties received foreclosure filings in 2008, an increase of 81% from 2007. In 2008, the District reported 4,182 properties receiving foreclosure filings and Maryland reported 32,338 properties receiving filings. Virginia reported a stunning 49,011 properties receiving foreclosure filings in 2008, ranking it 16th in the nation for its foreclosure rate.
