What is an reo?
Real estate owned or REO is a class of property owned by a lender, typically a bank after an unsuccessful sale at a foreclosure auction. What goes on at the auction you ask? A bank will typically set the opening bid at a foreclosure auction for at least the outstanding loan amount. If there are no bidders that are interested, then the bank will legally repossess the property. This is usually the case as the amount owed on the home is probably higher than the value of this foreclosure property. As soon as the bank repossess the property, it is listed on their books as REO – Real Estate Owned – and is categorized as an asset.
As soon as a property goes into a default or distressed status (the borrower/home owner misses mortgage payments) the bank will want to determine the amount of equity that the property has. A popular method to determine the equity is to obtain a Broker Price Opinion (BPO) , CMA or order an appraisal. Top selling REO agent in Hawaii servicing the Big Island, Oahu, Kauai, and Maui offers Free BPO’s to all asset managers willing to list their property with RE/MAX Resort Realty and Howard Dinits the top selling agent in their office. Based on the amount of equity that is determined from the BPO, the bank will decide to try for a short sale or to allow it to go through the foreclosure process. If the bank is able to sell the property through a short sale or at a foreclosure auction, then the property will not become a REO property.
After a repossession and the property becomes classified as REO, the bank will go through the process of trying to sell the property on its own or obtain the service of an REO Asset Manager. The bank will remove some of the liens and other expenses on the home and try to resell it to the public, either through future auctions or direct marketing through a real estate broker.

Generally speaking, bank REO properties are in poor shape in terms of repairs and maintenance; however, real estate investors will often go after these properties as banks are not in the business of owning homes and so, in some cases, the low price can more than compensate for the condition of the property.
