Foreclosures & Short Sales

This is a great time to buy Austin real estate, and at Carvajal Group, we're always on the lookout for Foreclosures and Short Sales that will make a great investment for one of our clients.

You'll want to work with an agency that has experience with these types of properties because the process is often more complex than a standard home purchase. See our article on Foreclosure & Short Sales Complications for more information. If you're interested in taking advantage of this type of real estate investment, Carvajal Group is one of the few agencies in Austin with extensive experience in this area. Call us at 512.419.7770.
