Hi, folks. I am planning to buy my first home within the next year or so, and while I love living in Ballard (been renting here for about 5 years), the real estate is a little pricey. I have been seeing quite a few foreclosure listings in the neighborhood, and I am thinking about going this route. I understand that buying a foreclosure entails certain risks, but given the opportunity to buy a home that might normally be out of my price range, I want to at least look into it.
Has anyone recently bought a foreclosed property in Ballard? Any recommendations for good real estate agents who are familiar with the process?
