Bank Owned and REO Homes

Things You Must Know About REO

Bank owned and REO homes – Defined

Generally speaking a bank owned home, otherwise known in the real estate industry as an REO, is a home that has been taken back by the bank after the owner has defaulted on their loan.  The foreclosure process is a complicated and lengthy one, with many financial, social and tax issues to contend.  It is important, then, to work with highly skilled professionals when buying a bank owned or REO home, since many of the contract and financial issues are much different than in a standard real estate sale or transaction.
