Foreclosures & Short Sales

Getting the best bang for your buck on foreclosures in Boise can take a bit of know-how, so being able to figure out the differences between the various types of Boise foreclosures, short sales, and bank-owned properties will help any potential homebuyers immensely.

Pre-foreclosure Sales

Pre-foreclosure sales happen when a homeowner defaults on their mortgage, but a formal foreclosure has not yet been filed with their bank or mortgage lender. Buying this type of Boise foreclosure will allow you to deal directly with the homeowner and the homeowner’s mortgage lender and/or bank.

Short sales are almost the same, however with Boise short sales, the bank agrees to a mortgage payout that is often less than what is owed on the property by the current owner. Banks or mortgage lenders would rather take a hit on the remainder of the previous homeowner's mortgage if it means that you, the new homeowner, are able to make payments for the foreseeable future.

Real Estate Owned Property (REO)

REO is the result of a homeowner having vacated their home, forcing the bank to reclaim the property. REO properties can usually be purchased below market value, although not always significantly lower. Whether you're purchasing an REO property or a regular sale, a fixer-upper is still a fixer-upper, and the price will reflect the state of the home on offer. Every once in a while however, the bank or mortgage lender is highly motivated to sell a Boise foreclosure and will be much more receptive to tabling lower offers or give you a deal on mortgage financing.


Auctions take place when foreclosures in Boise, ID are auctioned off without any homeowner input or negotiations, and any liens against the Boise property are wiped clean. The main issue with this type of Boise foreclosure is that a pre-sale inspection is not allowed, the home is sold as-is, and the sale usually requires cash up front. In addition, the new homeowner may need to evict the current occupant.
