Foreclosure in Philadelphia>Question Details

Shawn, Other/Just Looking in Philadelphia, PA

I was checking the bureau of revenue and taxes website in Philadelphia and a house on my block was bought by the bank April of 2010. When I called?

Asked by Shawn, Philadelphia, PA Mon Oct 24, 2011

the REO department for that bank they stated that the house still belongs to the owner. How could that be if it's recorded that the bank bought it a year ago? Thank you.

Hi Shawn,

The REO department probably hasn't received the file from the Foreclo0sures (Law) Department yet. It can sometimes take up to a year from when they take a property back to get it on the market again.

Please feel free to contact me and I will track the property and alert you immediately when it is listed on the market.

All the best,
