There is a low absorption rate of the REO property of approximately one over the past one year. These properties move quickly as buyer’s perceive them as the best deal. Keep in mind when buying an REO property – they are purchased “as is”. Keep in mind banks will want fair market value and go to great lengths to obtain that value, including obtaining several BPO (broker price opinions) and appraisals.
Market absorption rate is declining with the increase of sales in August. Absorption rate is now under a month to approximately one month.
