Bank Owned Homes - a Good Way to Invest your Money

Why Invest in Bank Owned Homes

Bank owned homes are a great way to save money on your next real estate purchase. Banks and lenders are very eager to sell the repossessed properties on their books because they have already lost money on these properties due to unpaid loans. As a result, it is possible to buy these Real Estate Owned properties (REOs) at 30% to 50% below market value.

Right now, foreclosures are increasing across the country, and this means even more savings as the market is hot for bank repo homes. Whether you want an investment home or just want to stop paying rent, this is a perfect time to buy - when you buy foreclosures.

Why Bank Repo Properties?

Bank Repossessions

To understand why bank repo properties are priced so low, it is important to understand how these homes get sold. Originally, these homes are sold to a homeowner, just like every other property. When a homeowner does not pay their mortgage, the lender starts proceedings to repossess the property. This is a legal process by which the bank becomes the owner of the property.

Once the bank has ownership of the property, the bank will want to sell the property quickly because that property is already costing the lender tens of thousands of dollars a month in unpaid loans. Some banks repossess thousands of such properties a month, so the main priority is to sell them quickly and get back some of the money owed on the home's mortgage. This means that banks are often willing to sell at below market value just to sell fast.
