Buying Caldwell bank owned foreclosures, also known as Real Estate Owned (REOs), is just one of 3 common ways to buy distressed properties. The others are buying a short sale (pre-foreclosure), or at the trustee sale auction. If the property is not purchased at the auction, then the bank repossesses it and then puts it on the market as a REO property. Typically, the banks want to get these properties off their books quickly and will price them to sell. The advantage is that is generally considered less risky than at auction since the buyer can inspect the property and does not have to worry about clouded title or unpaid liens. These properties can be often be purchased at below market value since the lender wants to recover the investment as quickly as possible especially if the property has been listed for extended period of time. Nampa foreclosure homes have also offered hard to beat pricing during the past 12 months.
Buyers of foreclosure properties in Caldwell must be prepared to do their due diligence. Not all bank owned properties are bargains. Buyers should research the neighborhood and have a realistic perspective on the repairs required and costs involved.

Also, it is important the buyer conducts an inspection and allows a back out clause in the contract if the repairs are too extensive. The banks typically will not want to sell the property ‘as is’ and wont want to do any additional repairs. They can typically close in the customary time frame of less than 45 days.
