Bank owned properties are listed with area Realtors. The list price on the property is supposed to reflect current market value for the home. All listings can involve multiple offers. The bank will request a buyer's highest and best offer (which may be more than asking price). The offer that nets the most amount to the bank with the least contingencies will win the bid.

Good Luck,

Hi J, it is most definitely a bid. When more than one offer comes in the banks come back with "highest and best". They will do this if the property has 1 other bid or 20.

One thing to keep in mind is that the bank has already done their appraisal from a local agent, called a BPO. (Broker Price Opinion). In Ann Arbor and most of Washtenaw County the homes are selling AT or ABOVE asking price.

Let me know if you further questions.
