The bank sets the bar at about 90% of fair market value. If they do not get an offer above the bar they set, the bank will be the highest bidder. After they collect the insurance $$$ on the 'loss' the property will be recycled and sold as a bank owned property 'REO'.

When a borrower gets behind in mortgage payments or breaches their loan document contract in some other way, the process moves from Notice of Default, (when there's still time to 'catch up,' negotiate a loan modification or short sale), to foreclosure, then trustee sale. If it does not sell at the trustee sale, it finally becomes Bank Owned (REO).

Just because the foreclosure ad states $360,000 does not mean that is what it will sell for. A foreclosure is an AUCTION. That means people bid. Most people that go there to bid know the values of property. They hope to get a deal, however, others are there for the same purpose. So if you can get it 10% below market you an say you got a good deal.

Hi David...

What exactly are you wanting to do? I doubt that a house in Beverly Hills will sell for $360,000, even if it is a foreclosure.

Feel free to give me a call to discuss.

All the best,
