Bank Owned HomeAffordable housing is so important in this economy. Giving your family a place to live is one of the most crucial expenditures — and also one of the biggest drains on family finances. This afternoon I found that good friends of ours are looking at a foreclosed home right across the street from our new home. How great would it be to have a wonderful family move in — and how wonderful for them to move into a great house at an amazing price.

If you're in the market for a new home and need a great price, check out Bank Owned for local listings. I found a bunch in my wonderful city at very, very good prices. Some have photos and enough information to down select to those that will fit your family, some would require more research.

Also consider looking at government homes for sale. This is another group of homes with motivated sellers.

Get your family into a lovely home at a bargain price!
