Homesales Inc. was the mortgage servicer for Fremont Investments. Fremont Investments sold it to JP Morgan Chase. If Homesales Inc. is listed as the owner, the property is a Chase REO.
They will not deal directly with buyers (they follow a strict procedure that includes hiring a local broker to sell each home). They are not very easy to work with. A closing with them can take several months and the tranaction tends to be much less than smooth.
If you are interested in purchasing an REO property or have any questions at all about REOs, forclosures and short sales please contact me. I have a lot of experience in this area and would be more than happy to help you through the process!
