Special challenges might be present when working with owners of houses in foreclosure. They could be opposed to allowing an inspection of the home. Often the subjects show signs of vandalism, unfortunately at the hands of the former residents. Or, it's common to find nobody has occupied the house for months or the home languishing in disrepair for extended periods of time.

If your home has gone back to REO, you will interested in a quick disposition. But you might want to understand and review three values: as-is, as repaired, and "quick sale." These represent the worth of the house without any repairs done to it, with the work due to make the house marketable at full market value consistent with similar properties in the area, and, somewhere in between, with minimal investment in repairs - selling the property quickly, seemingly as a "fixer-upper".
