We specialize in selling Bank Owned, Foreclosed properties, which are usually sold “as is”.
Please allow AT LEAST 3-5 Business Days Response Time on ALL Offers.
Our customers have instructed us that quick responses are not always possible.

If your offer expires, its terms are no longer binding. Please submit an extension if necessary. You will get a response even if your offer has expired. You will be notified immediately upon the seller’s response.
Extensions: Please submit an Amendment to extend time to respond if necessary and the seller will sign it if your offer is accepted. If you do not submit an extension, provisions will be made in your counter offer extending response time.
Inspections – In most cases the electric is on. Gas will also be on only if heat is required and then only if gas appliances are present and functional. In most cases water will be on to the METER ONLY. In all cases properties have been winterized. DO NOT DISRUPT THE WINTERIZATION. As the property is listed for sale in AS-IS CONDITION, the seller will not guarantee that utilities will be functional for inspection. The seller WILL NOT authorize any repairs for the purpose of inspection unless agreed to in writing in the accepted purchase agreement. In all cases you must request DE-WINTERIZATION if plumbing inspection is required.
ALLOW 5 DAYS FOR DE-WINTERIZATION. If you find that any utility is not on, it is due to a problem with such utilities, and such utilities will NOT BE TURNED ON unless the buyer pays for the repairs required to establish such service. DO NOT ORDER ANY UTILITY TURNED ON WITHOUT WRITTEN CONSENT OF an REO Brokers America affiliate.

Making an Offer - In order to be sure you have a secure source of funding for your next Real Estate acquisition, all of the sellers we represent will require proof of funding. Either a Bank Letter indicating your ability to pay cash, or a Pre-qualification letter from your Mortgage Representative will be required to make an offer. See the checklist below for Mortgage Application guidelines and a list of what you will need.
New Mortgage Pre-Qualification and Pre-Approval Guidelines - If you plan to obtain a mortgage for your next purchase, you will need to obtain pre-qualification or pre-approval.
Pre-Qualification - quickly determines if you are able to apply for a new mortgage. You will need to pay for a credit report. This does not guarantee approval.
