The FDIC has already liquidated / closed 13 of its chartered bank so far in 2009.  Billionaire Wilbur Ross expects 1,000 FDIC Charter Banks to fail as the US economy continues to deteriorate.  This only leads me to believe there's huge opportunity in the housing and financial markets as long as you play your cards right.
I am currently working with one large capital investment group looking to liquidate Florida bank notes and REO's from $.07 to $.80 on the dollar.  The see my website at http://www.christhepro.com/625536.html for more information.

It has come to my attention through a very knowledgeable source M.G.

port orange: What is REO? How Can I Buy REO's - 02/12/09 12:54 AM
An REO (Real Estate Owned) is the term used in the banking world to describe a property that goes back to the mortgage company after an unsuccessful foreclosure auction. This is common because most of the properties up for sale at these auctions are worth less than the total amount owed to the bank. The minimum bid in most foreclosure auctions equals the outstanding loan amount, the accrued interest and any costs associated with the foreclosure sale including attorneys' fees. After an unsuccessful auction, the bank will go through the process of trying to sell the property on its own. It … (0 comments)
