Foreclosure discounts include homes in foreclosure or properties that are bank-owned. Even though foreclosures provide an opportunity to purchase properties at a lower price compared to non-foreclosures, RealtyTrac found that foreclosure prices are actually increasing. With the average foreclosure sales price at $170,040, prices are up 6 percent on a quarterly basis and up 7 percent yearly. The annual increase was the biggest since the fourth quarter of 2006.
