Lenders can foreclose Florida Keys homes for other reasons, but the most common reason lenders file a notice of default is when a borrower is at least two payments behind.
If the Fl Keys home owner does not bring the loan current, the lender will take the property away from the owner. In the final step of the foreclosure process, the lender tries to auction the property at a public sale.
Not all Florida Keys foreclosures that fall into foreclosure go to public sale because owners have the right to make up back payments up to a point, the time which varies from state to state. Also the property can be bought in pre-foreclosure during the short sale process.
Real estate investors and home buyers see profit in buying foreclosures because they can often buy the property for the amount owed, picking up the home owner's equity for free.
Unlike a foreclosure, investors typically buy the home for even less because investors are not paying off the existing loan nor making up the back payments. Investors are striking a deal with the existing lender to take less than what the lender has coming to avoid dealing with a foreclosure.
It's a myth that lenders are not going to make a deal with an investor unless the seller has fallen behind on the seller's obligation to make timely mortgage payments. Sellers don't need to be in default for a short sale to occur. For a buyer who wants to occupy the home, buying a Florida Keys short sale makes financial sense.
Buying a Florida Keys REO is similar to buying a Florida Keys short sale except the property is already owned by the lender. The property was acquired by the lender through a foreclosure action. Often lenders will sell repossessed homes for less than the past loan balance. Bank-owned properties are called REOs, meaning real estate owned by the lender. Banks end up owning the property when nobody at the public auction bid enough to cover the amount owed against the property. Florida Keys REO homes are often considered the best way to buy a distressed property because the seller is already out of the picture. It's just the Florida Keys investor, the investor's agent, the bank and the real estate agent who are negotiating the transaction. Some Florida Keys Bank Owned REOs can be purchased directly from the lender although it is highly recommended to buy any real estate property through a Florida Keys real estate agent to protect the buyers interest and negotiate the best possible price.
