A law firm familiar with REO and closings is crucial in both protecting your interests and ensuring the bank’s requirements are fulfilled.

Short for “Real Estate Owned”, REOs are homes acquired by banks and lenders through foreclosure. They are different than traditional real estate. Once a property becomes an REO property, occupants must be removed, a price must be set, and any outstanding liens must be cleared.

REO’s differ from other real estate in a number of ways:

  • Banks have no emotional attachment to the property and simply want the best possible offer.
  • REO Properties are sold “As-Is”.
  • REO Properties are expected to be sold by an agreed closing date, with possible penalties if it extends beyond that date.

Our closing department will work closely with agents and our clients, knowing that the closing agent can facilitate a successful closing for all parties.
