  1. Moving to a huge and busy city costs a lot of money but you can reduce your expenses if you consider affordable foreclosed condo properties for sale. As far as foreclosed properties are concerned some of the better deals have been made through a short sale. Condo properties for sale through short sales take place when the home owner has lost the ability to meet his mortgage obligation.See more at-houses for sale in newark
