As predicted, the conventional lender Chase Bank has confirmed that in the next six to eight weeks a flood of foreclosures will be released throughout Californina. What does that mean for us in Orange County? Opportunity!  We estimate that the low amount of foreclosures that we have now in Brea, Fullerton, Placentia, Yorba Linda and La Habra should rise to around 30% of our inventory. For those of you who have been or who are thinking about selling... you need to come to serious terms that if you don't take your equity and run now, you may be forced to sell later at foreclosure-driven market prices.

Brea Bank Repo
SOLD

Wow, here's a home that should sell quickly.  A 4 bedroom 3 bathroom home with over 3000 sq ft of living space, highly upgraded, beautiful city view, and listed for only $539,000.

The master bedroom is huge, as it was a builder option to be 2 bedrooms.  There's a spa tub in the master bathroom.  The home features a remodeled kitchen with granite countertops, an intercom system, surround sound, travertine flooring, slate flooring, recessed lighting, 2 fireplaces, etc etc.

I'm sure the home will get multiple offers and will sell for more than asking price.   It's not my listing, but I will gladly show it to you.  Don't miss out.

 To see more Brea Bank Repos go to Brea Bank owned homes.
