I'm in agreement with the other responses here that if the REO property is truly comparable and has recently sold in the same neighborhood then yes, it will be used in the appraisal.
I do find it helpful to have my own comparable sold listings available to show the appraiser if he wishes to consult with me particularly if he is not familiar with the area (which is the case with some appraisers nowadays).
