occasionally a REO bank owned property may be able to sale a property with almost zero down if they feel the risk is worth it when they are the "Owner" of the property and therefore do not have the same rules? Do you know of any possibilities?
Thank you. Of course it would have to be a price that could fit into a landlord equation correctly.

At this time I do not know of a lender/REO bank that is offering a situation such as the one that you are interested in. Once a home has gone back to the bank, most of the time there is "NO ZERO" down opportunities. The closest I have seen is HUD offering programs where you can purchase homes for $100, dollars down, I would recommend going to and doing some research.

no money down in todays market would be tough as you will be competing with multiple offers that will put money down. If you have a way to go to the bank directly....and buy a qualtity of properties may have a chance, but I honestly think it unlikely. good luck.

Typically...if you can pay cash, and buy multiple properties, Banks will bend over backwards to make you a great deal. Other than that, they really don't make deals.
Let me know if I can help you in any way!

Good morning,

Our company received bank owned listings from lenders. When considering offers, they are looking for the best price WITH the highest probability of closing.

With that said, the buyer needs to come with their own financing. The bank wants as much money down as possible from buyers. They do not self finance sales.

Best regards,
