Real Estate Owned By Banks

Real estate owned by banks refers to property that has been repossessed by mortgage lenders through loan default. It can be advantageous to seek out bank owned foreclosures because these properties are often sold below market value.

Real estate owned by banks is no different than properties listed for sale by private sellers. Banks list properties through local realtors and buyers submit offers to the bank. The majority of lenders require buyers to prequalify for lending prior to placing offers on bank foreclosures.
