Welcome to the world of buying foreclosed homes at auction - a real estate strategy that lets you remove the middleman, decrease your competition, and buy at a discount.

Bidding for properties on the courthouse steps while competing in real time with other investors is a thrilling experience. There’s nothing like it in the world of real estate, but there’s also a lot to learn. With dozens of insider auction secrets that are proven to help maximize returns, Bidding to Buy will show you the skills you need to successfully bid at auction, then turn a healthy profit on your investment.

Successfully buying foreclosures isn’t a matter of luck, and it isn’t for insiders only. However, it does require a process - one that can be repeated for optimal returns. In this audiobook, you’ll find a full blueprint of the foreclosure process, including the repeatable five-step method that the authors have used to buy thousands of properties.

  • Understand the entire foreclosure process and how it differs from state to state
  • Conduct complete title research and develop an eye for red flags
  • Navigate the potential risks and pitfalls behind a live auction
  • Access property listings and early posting data
  • Build an accurate financial analysis on any available property
  • Acquire creative and alternative financing methods, including no-cash solutions

Outstanding Book on Foreclosure Investing!!!

This is one of the few books I've truly appreciated from start to finish regarding the processes of Investing in Foreclosed Homes / Titles. Extremely easy to follow as the narrator has a good voice to listen to. There's MANY Audible books I've instantly regretted buying because the sample voice I was expecting was not the majority voice being used throughout the narration. Lots of authors typically spend the vast majority of time in their books discussing how they came from nothing & now have all the money in the world. In this book however, the sought after processes needed to follow a successful Foreclosure Investing business is outlined in thorough detail as well as easy to understand examples of the authors personal experiences. Alot of times he got lucky and other times he learned lessons the hard way. With SOOOO many books to choose from on the market, coupled with how little amount of time most people have to learn a new industry while staying productive in their current busy lives, I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who's looking to get into this specific field. As I navigate the world of Real Estate, this book will forever be close by to use as a reliable, organized & trustworthy source of knowledge and processes needed to be successful. The author deserves some gratification from this reader, thanking him for putting together this very well thought out book for beginners and experts wanting a well presented reference guide in the world of Foreclosed Homes.

Great general overview

Great overview of the whole foreclosure process. Only thing I was hoping for was a more in depth dive into how to do title search’s on my own.

if you are experienced, skip the first half.

if you have experience as an investor, you can skip half the book and go straight to the 5 steps. I was worried it would have no substance to it, but it wasn't a bad introduction and I will refer back to it on occasion as needed.
