What are Repo Homes?

Foreclosure for Sale

Repossessed houses, or simply repo homes, are properties repossessed by the lender due to mortgage default. Although it sounds relatively straight forward, the entire repossession process actually involves several stages:

Stage 1: Mortgage Default

When a homeowner fails to meet his mortgage obligations, as a result of bankruptcy, divorce, unemployment or medical emergencies, mortgage default occurs. The lender will contact the homeowner about the default and encourage payment to avoid initiating foreclosure proceeding.

Stage 2: Pre Foreclosure

If the homeowner continues to miss mortgage payments and does not try to work with the lender to address the default, lender will have to endorse the case to their legal department to begin foreclosure.

Stage 3: Trustee Sale

Foreclosure notices will be sent out to announce the impending sale of the property in a trustee sale or foreclosure auction. Homebuyers and investors flock to these auctions since the properties are auctioned off at low starting bids. The highest bidder takes ownership of the property.

If there are no winning bids, the homes are reverted to the mortgage lender and eventually referred to as repo homes. The lender will choose to sell the properties at a discounted price to recover losses incurred during the foreclosure process.
