Bedford, New Hampshire Foreclosed and Bank Owned Property
When a homeowner defaults on his/her mortgage in New Hampshire, the lender will start the process of obtaining the right to sell that property at auction in order to satisfy the debt (balance owed on the mortgage).
Purchasing a home at a foreclosure auction has many risks to a potential buyer (especially a first-time home buyer). There is commonly no opportunity to view the interior of the property, conduct proper inspections and in some cases, there are individuals still occupying the premises. Because of these risks, homes in Bedford, NH are not always sold at auction and the bank will instead take possession of the property. The property is then referred to as bank-owned, REO (real estate owned) or foreclosed property.
There are cases where a homeowner will attempt to sell their home before the bank starts the foreclosure process. The home owner is either already behind on their mortgage payments or will not be able to sell for a price that would cover the balance owed on their mortgage. This is referred to as a short-sale and requires the lender's approval. Obtaining approval can be a long and difficult process. Additionally, there is no assurance that the lender will accept an offer at or above the listed price.
