Orange County Short Sales & REO-Bank Owned Properties

Orange County tends to have a steady supply of Short Sale and Real Estate Owned (REO) - Bank Owned properties. That's because many buyers here end up with mortgages they can't afford on luxury coastal and beach cities homes. When property values flatten or start to drop and interest rates on their loan increase, it becomes especially hard for struggling home owners to sell and pay off debt. For investors or home buyers, these market conditions have yielded great deals on a wide variety of properties. Short Sale buyers help home owners get out of a tough financial situation by buying the property before it goes to foreclosure.

Short Sale and Bank Owned listing information and number of listings displayed by city is updated throughout every day and is current as of May 24, 2015.

Our experienced team is available to assist you with a foreclosure property or another property best suited to your needs. Buying or selling, we are here to act as your local real estate specialist. Contact The Hartanov Team at 949.481.3739.

The Orange County Short Sale & REO Market

Orange County has hundreds of Short Sale and REO (also known as "Real Estate Owned" or "Bank Owned") listings on the market at any given time - these range from starter homes in newly developed communities to custom estates priced well into the millions. Newer residential developments like Talega in San Clemente, or Ladera Ranch in the Mission Viejo area, have seen REO and Short Sale listings comprise as much as 50 per cent or more of the total market in recent quarters.

Buyers and investors who approach each Orange County Short Sale and REO listing on its own merits will find the best deals faster. REO and Short Sale homes are commonly lumped together because they relate to foreclosures, but they are quite distinct from one another. Short sales happen before a property goes to foreclosure, while REO/Bank Owned properties are sold after the home is foreclosed and the bank or lender takes control of the property. Short Sales also typically involve the homeowner and/or their agent getting lender approval to sell below what is owned to the bank(s), while REO sales are usually direct negotiations with the lender and the real estate agent for the investor or potential buyer.
