Auction of Nearly 700 Florida Foreclosures Allow Buyers to Grab Deals on Homes

    Homes Will Be Auctioned August 12th-17th in Jacksonville, Tampa, Ft.

Myers, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando and Other Cities

    MIAMI, Aug. 4 /EMWNews/ -- Swelling foreclosure rates in

states like Florida have home prices plunging, making it a great time for

investors or first time homebuyers to dive into the market and purchase

property at bargain prices. In this hobbled housing market, bank-owned

foreclosure auctions allow buyers to grab even bigger discounts on homes

because lenders are eager to dispose of these properties. Hudson &

Marshall, the country's most experienced foreclosure auction firm, will

auction nearly 700 bank-owned homes in cities throughout Florida on August

12th -17th.

    Nearly 100 homes will be auctioned in Tampa on August 13th and over 200

homes will be auctioned in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area on August 16th. On

August 17th over 100 homes will be auctioned in Orlando. All the properties

come with title insurance paid for by the sellers. Winning bidders will be

required to make a $2500 deposit in the form of cash or certified funds for

each property on which they are the successful bidder.

    "Years ago, people used to think of foreclosures as strictly distressed

property in need of repairs but that's not really the case anymore," said

Dave Webb, Principal, Hudson & Marshall. "Savvy buyers in today's real

estate market understand foreclosures make great investments because they

often look just like the property next door but can be purchased at a much

better price," added Webb.

    Florida continues to get battered by foreclosures. According to

Realtytrac(R), Florida reported the nation's fourth highest state

foreclosure rate in the second quarter of 2008 with one in every 78

households receiving a foreclosure filing. This is more than twice the

national average.

    Each property is sold "as-is" and buyers should inspect the homes

before placing any bids. An open house is scheduled for Saturday, August

9th and Sunday, August 10th from 1:00pm-3:00pm. Properties may also be

viewed by contacting the listing agent and making an appointment. A

complete list of properties and additional information may be found at or by calling 866-539-4172.

    Hudson & Marshall will auction the Florida homes in the following major

cities: Ft. Walton-August 12th (12 homes); Panama City Beach-August 12th (5

homes); Jacksonville-August 12th (36 homes); Gainesville-August 13th (8

homes); Palm Bay-August 13th (19 homes); Tampa-August 13th (90 homes); Port

Charlotte-August 14th (25 homes); Port St. Lucie-August 14th (21 homes);

West Palm Beach-August 14th (18 homes); Ft. Myers-August 14th (69 homes);

Sebring-August 15th (5 homes); Miami/Ft.Lauderdale-August 16th (253 homes);

and Orlando-August 17th (123 homes).

    Prior to the auction, buyers can purchase property online by visiting

the website and clicking on the Bid-Now icon. Sellers usually respond to

offers within 24 hours. This is a reserve auction, which means sellers have

the right to accept, reject or counter any bid; however, in past auctions

conducted by Hudson & Marshall, the majority of offers have been accepted.
