All available REO proeprtieswill always be listed for sale in MLS. The actual owner of a foreclosed property can be very difficult to determine. In the end, the identity of the seller makes very little difference to the potential buyer. Only Fannie Mae and HUD offer any type of special financing for their REO properties. Once listed for sale, Fannie Mae or HUD will identify the eligible properties on their individual websites. With all other REO sellers, regular loan programs (i.e. Conventional, FHA, VA, USDA, FHA 203K Renovation, Jumbo, etc) would be used to purchase and finance the property.

When it comes to REO properties, you must wait until the property is actually listed for sale. REO departments of mortgage companies will not talk to or entertain offers from individual buyers. You would have to have Buyer’s Agent represent you in the transaction. All offers to purchase an REO property must be submitted by the Listing Agent assigned to the property.

There is a set process that every REO seller has and uses for each and every property that have. Generally, an REO property will not be listed for sale when there are pending title issues. Also, the seller may be planning to make repairs to bring the property up to minimum property standards so that a buyer can obtain a mortgage. Sometimes, the seller will hold the property off of the market when there is a surplus of inventory. Doing so prevents further depression of the housing prices. There could also be an eviction that needs to take place. Very often, the property could already be assigned to a Listing Agent, but just not quite ready to enter into MLS and place the For Sale sign on.

If you are looking to purchase a property, working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your mortgage options. To get Pre-Qualified for your purchase, you can submit your request online at www.rodneymason.com.

You would need to consult with your Real Estate Agent. For any legal advice, you would have to consult with an attorney.
