Solon Ohio Real Estate: Bank Owned Homes In Thornbury of Solon Ohio

Buying a bank owned home seems to be a popular trend nationwide, even here in the Cleveland area. Home buyers are attracted to the idea of getting a good deal and believe a bank owned home is the best way to accomplish that.

You can read all about the pros and cons of buying a bank owned home by clicking here, as it won’t be discussed in this particular article.  However, we would like to discuss bank owned homes specifically in the Solon development of Thornbury as we are constantly fielding questions about it.

Over the last few years, there were a lot of homes foreclosed upon in Solon Ohio, and especially in the upscale development of Thornbury. As an overview, there were a lot of people throughout the country, not just here in the local area, that were living beyond their means in the early part of this decade, and bought homes they could barely afford. When times got tough, people got into trouble, even those living in luxury developments like Thornbury.

Now specifically, there were some individuals involved in a mortgage scandal that affected homes on Flanders Drive in Thornbury of Solon. It has taken some time for these homes to go through the foreclosure process but over the last year, these homes have been coming on the market, and have been selling quickly, many with multiple offers.

Here is a list of recent bank owned home sales in Thornbury:

As is evidenced by the relationship between sale price and listing price and average market time, there is good demand for a home in Thornbury, especially one that is bank owned. The reason many of these homes sold for above asking price was due to multiple buyers making offers.
