Chico CA Foreclosure Listings

Chico Buyers

For your sake, as a buyer, PLEASE make sure you have an REO competent Realtor!!

Please. I’m begging. If you are a buyer looking to purchase a foreclosure property, do your best to ensure that you’ve hired a Realtor well-versed in REO transactions. I can not stress this enough!

I just stopped in the middle of submitting an offer on an REO property in Paradise, CA to write this. It is so frustrating to me when I see offers come in from well-qualified, strong buyers who have unfortunately chosen the wrong Realtor for the job.  The Realtor may very well be an excellent choice on a normal, retail purchase transaction. However, REO is a niche market, and not all Realtors take the time and effort to learn the nuances, and therefore effectively represent their client. I have seen Realtors make the same mistakes repeatedly, despite my efforts to provide them with the exact information they will need to ensure the success of their clients. It’s mind boggling!

I would suggest specifically asking your prospective Realtor about the number of REO transactions they have closed.  Hopefully they will answer truthfully.  Another good question would be regarding the percentage of accepted offers versus the number of offers they have written. While we are all new to REO at some point, the key is to find a Realtor that has the willingness and inherent ability to learn the necessary differences between an REO transaction and a retail transaction.

If, as a buyer, you are coming to the table with a strong desire to purchase the property, and you’ve got your cash in hand or a prequalification letter in place, you don’t want to shoot yourself in the foot by hiring the wrong Realtor!

Invest the time. Know your Realtor. Does he KNOW REO?

Foreclosures: What you should know BEFORE you make an offer, Part 3

This is part 3 in a series of helpful hints to purchasing foreclosures in Chico, CA.

Did you miss parts 1 and 2? Read here!

Foreclosures: What you should know BEFORE you make an offer, Part 1

Foreclosures: What you should know BEFORE you make an offer, Part 2

Chico CA real estate buyers and investors LOVE foreclosures.

The problem is, there aren’t that many to go around! Many areas of California have experienced a high influx of foreclosures thanks to the recent mortgage meltdown. Chico, CA however has fared a little better in terms of relative numbers of repossessions.

Chico CA real estate foreclosuresChico CA buyers are competing to snatch up the bank-owned (REO) property when it DOES come along. It’s important to remember, however, that purchasing an REO property can be quite a bit different than a traditional Chico CA real estate purchase.

Before offering on a Chico, CA REO property, you should know:

1. It’s important to have a preapproval letter from your lender. Most of the banks I’ve dealt with require that the preapproval be submitted with your initial purchase offer. Without it, they won’t waste their time reviewing your paperwork. While this makes good sense anytime you are offering on a property, it’s critical for an REO listing.

2. The bank also wants to prequalify you themselves.

They want to see the letter from your preferred lender, but they won’t necessarily trust it! Oftentimes, you will be required to fill out their credit application just so they can verify that you do indeed qualify for the loan amount, or are otherwise financially stable. Although they would be happy to process your loan, you are still pursue a loan through the lender of your choice.

3. The bank is picky when it comes to title companies.

Typically, a buyer has some say about which title company they prefer, and even which officer they would like to work with. The bank really doesn’t care if your friend Sue is the best title officer in the county and her office is only 2 blocks from your new house. Most of the time, they already have a title company and officer designated, and the point is non-negotiable. The best part? The title company is usually out of the area, and unfamiliar with local practices.

Foreclosures: What you should know BEFORE you make an offer, Part 2

This is part 2 in a series of helpful hints to purchasing foreclosures in Chico, CA.

Did you miss part 1? Read here.

Bank-owned property (REO) is some of the most sought-after Chico CA real estate of all time. In a market where many buyers are sitting on the fence waiting for the bottom to fall out, savvy investors are picking up REO‘s as fast as Chico Realtors can churn them out!

Paradise CA Foreclosure, 1328 Bille RoadIt is important, should you be considering purchasing a bank-owned (REO) listing, that you understand up front what exactly you’re getting yourself into. For the uninitiated, a look into the world of REO can be quite surprising. (In case you’re wondering, I don’t necessarily mean that in a good way.)

Before offering on a Chico, CA REO property, you should know:

1. Most REO property won’t leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy.

First time home-buyers are often gleeful when they get their first look at the home they will eventually buy. “It’s just so CUTE!” they declare. They oooh and aaah over the carefully groomed, staged and scented home visualizing Thanksgiving Dinners and Christmas trees.

REO property often takes a little more imagination. You have to try to pretend that the yard is not dead, the house isn’t lime green, the walls don’t have holes in them, the kitchen appliances and fixtures are actually there, and the flooring isn’t all torn up. That is, if you can get past the unbelievable stench and filth of lives gone horribly wrong.

To be fair, there are nice, clean Chico REO properties to be had- there are. But oftentimes, an REO house is one that shows evidence of severe neglect and outright abuse on the part of an angry or desperate previous owner.

2. Don’t expect the bank to pretty it all up for you!

The banks usually prefer to sell “as is.” Minimally, they will do an initial “trash out” to remove the belongings left in or on the property. In addition, they will re-key, board up windows, and winterize. It is unlikely that measures will be taken to add appeal- if the sinks, lights, appliances and windows are missing, they are likely to stay that way. Exception: if the buyer’s lender requires a repair (or 10) to fund the loan, the bank may negotiate the cost of the repairs. In a competitive REO market, however, they won’t need to do any repairs- a cash buyer will snatch it right up in it’s current condition.

3. The bank won’t tell you what’s wrong with the house, because they don’t know.

A traditional seller is required to provide you with a laundry list of everything they know to be wrong with the property. In the case of an REO property, the seller has never even seen the property, let alone lived in it. The bank has no idea if the handrail is loose, if there are barking dogs next door, or if meth was manufactured in the second bedroom. Make sure that you do any inspections necessary to ensure that you have a good grasp on the condition of the property- very little information will be provided to you by the seller.

Coming soon! What you should know BEFORE you make an offer, Part 3.

Foreclosures: What you should know BEFORE you make an offer, Part 1

This is part 1 in a series of helpful hints to purchasing foreclosures in Chico, CA.

Foreclosure” sees to be the new buzzword around Chico, CA these days. Everyone wants to score that awesome Chico CA real estate deal, and people are looking to the foreclosures in Chico to make it happen. In truth, most people are actually wanting “REO” property. In other words… the bank now holds the title.

Chico CA foreclosuresThe process of purchasing an REO property can be significantly different than your average residential purchase. Not always, of course, but often enough that you should know ahead of time what you might run into.

Before offering on a Chico, CA REO property, you should know:

1. Not all REO’s are phenomenal deals!

Just because the listing agent labels it “foreclosure!” doesn’t mean that it is a steal. I work with a least one bank that takes the appraisal price and ups it by 5% to arrive at the asking price. Make sure that you are working with a competent Chico Realtor who can help you ascertain whether or not the property is priced competitively.

2 . The bank has no emotional ties to the property.

Unlike a typical homeowner, the bank is emotionally detached during the negotiating process- it’s completely impersonal. Truly, your offer is just one of many files sitting in a pile on somebody’s desk. The strategies that might help you score in a traditional transaction are unlikely to work with a bank employee located in Texas. They have a specific set of rules and time-lines to follow, and little else matters to them.

3. The bank operates on their schedule, not yours.

“Time is of the essence” in a typical transaction. If, as a buyer, you allow the seller 3 days to respond to your offer, they will usually respond as quickly as possible in order to facilitate the transaction. A bank may respond in an hour, or it make take several weeks to get an answer! Don’t make the mistake of thinking the bank isn’t considering your offer- sometimes the contract has to be approved by a series of 5 or 6 people at the company before you get the good news. Conversely, I’ve found that once an offer is approved, the bank will steamroll over anybody or anything that gets in the way of closing the deal on time. Usually, they want to close within the same month the contract is approved!
