What does REO Occupied mean? Is this bank owned or rental? How long is the lease on the rental? How do I discover the details?

It means the property is bank owned but someone is living there, it could be the owner or tenant. If you ended up purchasing the property and that you are a good talker then you can talk to them and let them know that you are now the current owner. They can either move out or pay you rent. You may want to offer them some money so they are willing to leave and didn't damage the property. If they are not willing to compromise you will need to evict them.

I hope this helps!

What this typically means is that there is an occupant currently residing there. I checked in our MLS and it would appear that the owner is still residing there. I was not able to find any leased or sold record of it in our MLS, even going back several years.

Since this home is being sold at auction, there is likely no guarantee of a clear title and the new buyer would need to initiate eviction proceedings against the occupant.

Are you looking for other homes in Scofield Farms? I would be happy to help you find something that fits your needs if this one doesn't work out.

Thank you,
