There are many bank owned properties available but they tend to go under agreement very quickly...and often for over asking price. I'm working with several buyers who are looking at REO's only and this is what we're finding. Trying to purchase bank owned properties in this area is highly competitive! When dealing with the banks, you will need to have a pre-approval ready, your initial deposit check, proof of funds and a recent copy of your credit report. If you're not ready with these, you need to get this taken care of before you even start looking. The banks won't even consider your offer without all of this information provided. I'd be happy to help you, feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thanks, Cynthia

Are you pre-approved to buy a home? Do you have at least 5% of a down payment. Check out all the bank owned homes here:

Hi Madevry,

Frequently bank owned property will show active after an offer has been accepted until all the documents have been executed by the buyer and the seller. When the seller is an institution it often takes several days to get this done. REO listing agents are inundated with work and frequently do not return calls. I would recommend enlisting a buyer's agent to adequately represent you in your purchase.

You don't have to deal with the listing agent directly. In fact, many buyers refuse to because they feel the listing agent only has the seller's best interests at heart.

If you would like, you can email me the addresses you are interested in and I will find out the information you need.

You will find that many homes that are listed are either in escrow or have been put under contract for sale. This is normal. Calling the listing agent on REO homes isn't the best way to go about getting information and status on these homes. Often the agents are not available to return calls, some have assistants who don't know enough about the home to answer the incoming calls.

I would recommend finding yourself a strong buyers agent to provide you with the service of negotiating on your behalf. If you would like any further help, please contact me directly.

Best regards,
