What is a Foreclosure?

Foreclosure is when a lender is able to recover the amount owed on a defaulted loan by selling or taking ownership (repossession) of the property securing the loan. The foreclosure process begins when a borrower/owner defaults on loan payments and the lender files a public default notice. The foreclosure process can end one of four ways:

  1. The borrower/owner pays off the default amount to reinstate the loan during a grace period known as pre-foreclosure.
  2. The borrower/owner sells the property to a third party during pre-foreclosure, allowing the borrower/owner to pay off the loan and avoid having a foreclosure on his or her credit history.
  3. A third party buys the property at a public auction at the end of the pre-foreclosure period.
  4. The lender takes ownership of the property, usually with the intent to re-sell. The lender can take ownership through an agreement with the borrower/owner during pre-foreclosure or by buying back the property at the public auction.

If the home goes through the auction process and no bids are placed, the bank gets the home back it's called an REO (Real Estate Owned) Property and is then classified as an asset.  The buying process is similar to that of a Foreclosure at this point.
