RISMEDIA, May 3, 2007- In his latest book, Foreclosure Investing For Dummies, Ralph Roberts reveals the strategies and techniques that he has developed over his 30 years in real estate for investing in foreclosures.
After losing his own home to foreclosure early in his career, Ralph R. Roberts made foreclosure investing his specialty. In fact, Ralph Roberts Realty has its very own foreclosure division.
Roberts' approach to investing in pre-foreclosures and foreclosures is unique. Instead of preying on hapless homeowners, Roberts teams up with them to explore their options and choose the solution that's in their best interest. Frequently the best option is to get out from under the house by selling it, and sometimes the homeowners have too little time to place the home on the market and sell it, so they sell to an investor.
According to Roberts, by treating the homeowners with respect and acting with integrity, he becomes the investor with the best chance of buying the home.
Roberts buys homes directly from homeowners prior to the foreclosure sale, at foreclosure auctions, and from lenders who have repossessed the homes as a result of foreclosure.
