Hi Everyone, thanks for your answers. I have sold lots of REOs, HUDs, etc. to buyers, but really I am looking to list REOs and I read somewhere that to do that you have to do BPOs. Now, it looks like I'm getting contradictory information. But I don't want to do BPOs if they are not going to lead to getting me listings and they look to be a lot of work for little money. Appreciate all of your input!

If you believe you were a victim of unethical behavior, you can file a complaint at the arizona department or real estate website. There is also a recovery fund for anyone that suffered a loss from a violation of the rules. http://www.re.state.az.us/EnC/RecFund.aspx It is hard to say what happened in your situation though without more of the facts.... more
Great question! Many buyers are not sure where to start if they find a home that they like and would like to place an offer. Most may contact the listing agent (call the phone number on the sign) and have them handle it. Not always a buyer's best move. That agent represents the seller.
A buyer's best option is to locate a buyer's agent to represent them solely in the purchase. The buyer's agent can help structure an offer to the buyer's best needs as well as compare the home's offered purchase price to the other comparable homes in the area to ensure the buyer is not paying too much for the home.
It's a good idea that a buyer interviews a few buyer's agents to see who will best meet their needs for a comfortable working relationship.
Gee, when I moved to Phoenix in 1971, we didn't realize that we had all these problems that are now being pursued by different regulator bodies today. I've lived in several brick homes in the Phoenix area over the years and it all comes down to location, location and location.
What I mean is there are many areas that have lovely hundred-year-old houses that have been rebuilt, remodeled, whole neighborhoods redone by professionals moving into areas and refurbishing them. Example might be Ecanto Park, Old Central Ave. North, parts if old Scottsdale,, etc.
So many of these homes are now REO homes and have been remodeled prior to foreclosure. So look for specific areas, neighborhoods that have been updated, and maintained regardless of the foreclosures.
Make sure you do due diligence, with home inspections etc. But above all, look at a lot of REO properties and you will find many that are in excellent condition and ready to move into.
I loved my old brick homes in the Phoenix area. I still get calls from Realtor friends still live there, and sayâ€ you got to come , and get this homeâ€. So I know that there are beautiful out there for you to buy.
Keep looking. Find a good Realtor to help you.... more
