If you are looking to buy a home but are worried that you can't afford monthly payments, why not consider a foreclosure as your first home?

A foreclosed home is usually owned by a bank or lender and sold at prices way below its market value. Who knows, you may just hit the jackpot by purchasing a residence that would have been out of your price range.
