Particular challenges can be present when working with owners of houses in foreclosure. They could be unwilling to allow an inspection of the property. Often the houses have been intentionally damaged, often at the hands of the residents. Or, it's common to find the families have moved out or the home languishing in disrepair for extended periods of time.

For a home that has already reverted to REO, you likewise will be seeking an expeditious resolution . However, you may want to know about and analyze three values: as-is, as repaired, and "quick sale." These represent the value of the home without any repairs done to it, with the work required to make the house marketable at full market value consistent with similar properties in the neighborhood, and, somewhere in the middle, with minimal investment in repairs - selling the property quickly, most likely to someone who'd prefer to finish the job themselves.
