Study: Government Foreclosures Undervalued on Average by 8 to 10 Percent

Heavy Hammer, Inc., and USHUD.com reveal unprecedented opportunities for home buyers through undervalued foreclosure properties

ANNAPOLIS, Md., December 21, 2009 – Amid recent media reports that there is declining interest among American home buyers in purchasing foreclosures, real estate experts at Heavy Hammer, Inc., and USHUD.com cite a recent study showing that foreclosures are routinely underpriced by 8 to 10 percent.

Huge, unprecedented savings are being realized as the government stimulates the housing market in the face of a steadily rising national inventory of foreclosures. Incentivizing aggressive valuations of these properties by third parties is creating opportunities of a lifetime for first time homebuyers.

Heavy Hammer, Inc., CEO Michael Urbanski, says the little-known rules governing the appraisal process for foreclosure properties include requiring only a single appraisal for government foreclosures and requiring the acceptance of bids well below asking price.

“This undervaluing of real estate held by the federal government is good news,” Urbanski said. “This sort of government assistance opens up incredible opportunities to buyers who have a basic understanding of the process. Most importantly, it could go a long way in getting the market back on the right track.”
