Orit Gadish: The Basics of REO

Orit Gadish is the President, CEO, and broker at Gadish Properties, Inc., a Southern California-based brokerage that specializes in high-end real estate and REO transactions.REO stands for Real-Estate Owned, or bank-owned, properties. When a mortgage company wants to get rid of a property, it first tries a foreclosure auction. In this auction, the bidding starts at the price of the loan balance plus accrued interest, in addition to all other costs associated with the foreclosure process. Many foreclosures do not ever receive bids because the starting price is greater than the value of the property. If the property is not sold at a foreclosure auction, it goes back to the bank and becomes an REO.REO real estate is more complex and holds different challenges than regular real estate. Thus, if you are dealing with REO properties, it is wise to work with an agency that specializes in REO.
