What are REO and short sale properties?
Real estate owned or REO is a class of property owned by a lender—typically a bank, government agency, or government loan insurer—after an unsuccessful sale at a foreclosure auction (source: wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_estate_owned). A short sale is a sale of real estate in which the proceeds from selling the property will fall short of the balance of debts secured by liens against the property, and the property owner cannot afford to repay the liens’ full amounts, and whereby the lien holders agree to release their lien on the real estate and accept less than the amount owed on the debt. Any unpaid balance owed to the creditors is known as a deficiency (source: wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_sale_(real_estate
