Who is interested in purchasing REO Properties

Real Estate Sales Representative with Distinctive Homes Group

REO properties can be purchased in many different ways.  Typically done with a Real Estate agent in your local market who represents a bank in the sale of the home.  There are some excellent deals to be had in this current market. 

Our company sells houses that have not sold using the above methods and the banks just want to get rid of them.  We purchase them as-is at commodity pricing, average 8K per house about 10 cents on the dollar.  We then sell them at 40-50 cents on the dollar.  These houses sell very quickly, usually within six months returning the investor about three times his investment in as little as 30 months.  These homes are typically purchased regionally in bulk from 100-500 at a time.  The cost typically ranges from 1m to 5 m dollars.  We also have an optional hands off exit strategy which is a very experienced institutional property management firm. 

If you are an investor at this level or know of one contact us.  We will send more informaiton.  This is very safe with very high upside.  This opportunity will be here for the next two years of so.  Now is the time!  Looking forward to hearing from you!

My company is trying to do the same thing, yet they are trying to take the homes already purchased by these investors, and listing them not on the MLS, but on a website...for investors to purchase....the only flaw in the plan is that before they will be able to list the homes for his investor, they have to show him 200 DU underwritten approved buyers....

Charlie, I would love to work with investors anywhere.  We should talk and see if we have some common ground.  Thanks for the words of encouragement.


Konnie, Looks like your company is on the right path.  Finding the investor buyers is the challenge but they are out there.  Keep an eye on the REIA groups in your area.  We moved from Manassas to Florida in 1987. 

Our program works on commodity pricing where the market value is not an issue.  We have a company that does the selling nationwide.  They put a sign in the yard for rental rate and 800 down and you can own.  These are most are gone in a few months.  We buy in 100-500 house pacakges.  The firm we use manages institutional investor properties.  They take the rent rate back it into a 15 yr 11% first mortgage that comes back to us as the investment.  This principal also becomes the selling price no matter what the market says.  It typically comes out to about 40-50% value.  Great deal for everyone. 

Let me know if you have any investors that might be interested, we can take care of you too.

Everyone has been so kind.  Thank you for such a warm welcome. 

Vincent is right the foreclosure tsunami will be coming hard in '09 and we should see it continue into 2012 as the Alt-A loans go down.  They were much larger than the sub prime situation.  Hopefully we will see some positive market activity (buying) that will stem off some of the decline. 

Our program helps the banks move the properties into the hands of people displaced by the foreclosure problem.  We get the properties off the banks books and owner finance selling at 50% or less market value.  This is a great win/win for everyone. 

It is good to be in a place that is sooo nice!
