Post foreclosures (REO)

REO property or real estate owned property belongs to banks. How does it happen that banks own a real estate? Well, it is easy to understand: bank gives a loan, so mortgage appears, if client cant pay his dept and if there are no ways of foreclosure avoiding, the house becomes the property of financial organization. It may seem that foreclosures can’t bring high profits as bank want to sell it offering the price which will at least cover the amount of the first loan. On the other hand, if you will be more attentive, you will see some ways to benefit greatly from buying a foreclosure house.

It may be the situation, when more then one loan is secured to the real estate; actually it happens quite often nowadays. In case second lender doesn’t make payments to the first lender and starts own foreclosure procedure, in this case the second lender is not part of foreclosure process any more. That is the main reason why plenty of second mortgages are valued around 20% less then the normal market price.

Bank doesn’t benefit from being an owner of a house; it needs money to flow constantly to get higher net profit. More over keeping a foreclosure as an asset may cause additional expenses. That is why bank wants to sell this burden as soon as possible, and it is likely to accept even not high price, just to cover the dept.
