Bank Owned / REO Homes

Currently, our Tampa Bay real estate market is comprised almost entirely of short and bank owned/ REO homes.  Bank owned homes are typically the best deals on the market and are usually very easy to close.  The difficult part is to be the buyer that wins the bid and gets to buy the home.

A bank owned home will usually not be listed on the MLS for more than a week before they have attained several offers and go under contract.  Therefore, it is very important to beat other buyers to the punch.  You should place an offer on a bank owned home immediately when it is posted or, when possible, before it is posted on the MLS. 

In order to do that, you should be working with a real estate professional that understands the REO market and can get your offer in quickly!

Itís as easy as 1, 2, 3Ö.

Whatís in it for you?

  • We work directly with the bankís Asset Manager and are notified first when a home becomes available again.
  • You will be notified via e-mail and phone as soon as this home is available to buy.
  • You can even prepare an offer to be submitted immediately upon the home becoming available.
  • You can be pre-approved for financing so your offer will close fast once it is approved.
  • If you need to sell or lease your home, we can professionally start that process so you do not get stuck with double house payments.
    • Step 2: Bank Owned homes typically sell for at least 20% less than comparable homes sold and sell within 7 days of becoming available. Our unique system puts you in the front of the line with a solid offer. Our goal is to have your offer accepted before the competition even knows the home is for sale. When the home is available we can either set up a tour of the home or submit your predesigned offer.
