Countdown To Buy now featuring foreclosed homes in Georgia
May 04, 2010

Countdown To Buy, a next generation online real estate marketplace that offers fair and effective solutions to buy and sell properties, has announced that it has entered the Georgia marketplace and will be featuring recently foreclosed properties in 17 communities to potential homebuyers. “Because of the uncertainty, risk and anxiety surrounding purchasing an 'as-is' property in foreclosure, buyers need more information to level the playing field,” commented Countdown To Buy Chief Executive Officer Jim Hodson in regard to Georgia’s foreclosure rate being the sixth highest in the nation. “These newly foreclosed properties are being featured with independent appraisals and broker price opinions posted within our online marketplace thereby enabling home buyers to buy with more confidence.” Properties in Georgia will range in price from about $22,000 to over $190,000 and are located in 17 different communities, including Alpharetta, Greater Atlanta, Columbus, Kennesaw and Stone Mountain. All properties can be researched, open house dates viewed and showings scheduled with real estate agents through the company’s Web site at For a video simulation of how the Countdown To Buy process works, visit the Company’s Web site at or click How It Works. After Countdown To Buy successfully matched buyers in 25 days or less with an initial set of pilot properties located in Texas, Connecticut & Illinois, a leading institution expanded their multi-state pilot into the Georgia market. Countdown To Buy is now working with several leading institutions and has featured foreclosed properties in 18 states on its online marketplace. “Our transparent, no negotiation approach is gaining acceptance quickly with agents and buyers, and our seller partners are experiencing the significant advantages our model has to offer compared with existing disposition methods,” said Tom Furey, managing partner of Countdown To Buy. “With a seller approved price range that is pre-determined for each property, our unique reverse countdown reduces prices one percent per day through a confidential offer management system to significantly reduce the time a property spends on the market.” For more information, visit
