    Foreclosure property is really the best way i can think of to buy a a property with less price. However, REOs are better because you do not need to deal with the people who are still living on the property.

    But if you really have money and can afford to buy a luxurious house, i would really recommend checking out La Jolla – just my thought on this.

    In any case, if any of you are trying to check how you can buy foreclosure property, you need to be aware of its implications and some of the hassles it comes, especially if you had bought the property by foreclosure auctions. On the other side of the coin if you have met and cleaned out all the hassles, it will be a great buy because it is relatively cheap.

    Jonathan, you are correct. La Jolla is a great place to buy an owner-occupied property for a long term hold. Not the place to invest, but definitely the place to live, since prices there dropped by a LOT sincethe peak.
