REO/Short Sale/Foreclosure Info


Quick Facts: Buying Property at Foreclosure Auction/Sale

  • You must pay with cash in hand
  • You must pay at least the loan balance + any interest + other fees accumulated during the foreclosure process.
  • You’ll receive the property 100% “as is” including existing liens and even current occupants that need to be evicted.


REO stands for “Real Estate Owned.” REOs are properties that did not find a buyer during the foreclosure auction. Buying an REO is a much “cleaner” and attractive transaction, in contrast to purchasing a property at the foreclosure auction, because the bank will see to the removal of tax liens, evict occupants if needed, and generally prepare for the issuance of a title insurance policy to the buyer at closing.

Prospective REO buyers must be aware that REO’s may be exempt from normal disclosure requirements. In California, for example, banks are exempt from giving a Transfer Disclosure Statement, a document that normally requires sellers to tell you about any defects they are aware of.
