Real Estate Owned (REO)

REO or foreclosure escrow transactions are different from standard real estate escrow and require a specialized and experienced escrow approach.  These capabilities ensure adherence to sale conditions, typically owned by a bank or financial institution. REO is a class of property owned by a lender, typically a bank.  It is imperative to recognize that the REO seller is often a corporate lending institution, dealing with a huge volume of properties. To expedite the process of liquidating its properties, the seller employs a large staff of professionals whose sole job is to manage the sales of the bank's properties according to the policies and procedures which it has established.
