Aurora home

This cute home in Aurora is being auctioned this week.

“While the housing market is in recovery mode, now is a phenomenal time for buyers hunting for property to take the plunge and foreclosure auctions is where they can find great buys,” said Dave Webb, principal Hudson & Marshall. “By the time banks offer these homes at auction, they are eager to sell them so buyers can usually purchase them at a discount.”

All properties auctioned by Hudson & Marshall come with an insurable title but are sold “as-is,” so you should inspect any property before placing a bid. Contact the listing agent to schedule an appointment.

You can also purchase one of the properties before the auction by clicking on the ‘Bid-Now’ icon at the website. This is a reserve auction, which means sellers can accept, reject or counter any offer, however, Hudson & Marshall officials say the majority of offers have been accepted.
