Not all REOs are good deals. Many banks want market value in order to recoup as much of their losses as possible. Others are more concerned with liquidating their REO inventory as these non-performing assets have a negative impact on their books. We have relationships with asset managers and REO officers, so knowing which lenders are motivated sellers and which properties represent a bargain is where we come in.

Within the grace period determined by state law (pre-foreclosure), the borrower pays the default amount and reinstates the loan, or

At the end of the pre-foreclosure period, a trustee sale occurs and the property is sold at a public auction to a third party, or
The lender takes ownership of the property through an agreement with the borrower during the pre-foreclosure time period or buys the property at the trustee sale. The bank-owned property is referred to as real estate owned or REO.
