Short Sale Properties:
These are properties where the owner owes more on the mortgage than the property is worth, and they cannot make up the difference. The owner must ask the lender to approve a short sale, which is a sale for less than the outstanding mortgage balance.
Bank-Owned Properties (REOs):
These are properties that have gone through the foreclosure process and were not sold at auction. The lender now owns the property and is responsible for selling it.
These are properties that have been vacated by the owner and left unoccupied for a significant period of time. These properties may require significant repairs and cleanup.
These are properties that are part of a deceased person's estate and are being sold as part of the probate process.
Tax Lien Properties:
These are properties that have tax liens placed on them by the government for unpaid property taxes. If the owner does not pay the taxes, the government can foreclose on the property.
