I entered into an interesting debate fueled by a question i saw in Voices, that if you purchase a bank owned property, "Are you supporting the banks, financial institutions, fraud, bailouts and greed that created this recession? As a leading listing agent of Bank Owned Homes in the Manchester NH area I have some ideas and insight form dealing with these same institutions on a daily basis.
First in my opinion you are not supporting the bank by when you purchase a reo. You are supporting the neighborhood who will have an owner occupied home with someone taking care of it's maintenance, cleaning up an usually un-maintained home. You will support the local economy by buying goods and service to clean, repair and furnish the new home.
As far as the 'Banks" there are some very good ones to work with, i am lucky to work with some banks that have very good employees who assist with the whole listing and selling process. I have seen some other banks including Freddie and Fannie who make the process much harder than it needs to be. It is hard on the agents and on the potential buyers. From giving too many listings to only a few agents that can not possible service each and every one of them. There are agents who do not return calls or emails, do not answer questions, do not show up to show the property and do not update any offers you submit. This is the dark side of REO. On the other side there are some very good REO agents and those are the ones that helping the housing industry in it's recovery.
So what do you think... Are you supporting the banks, financial institutions, fraud, bailouts and greed that created this recession?
