Murrieta Bank-Owned REO Home on Robards - Heritage at the Oaks - Tovashal Elem, Thompson Middle, Murrieta Valley High
Lovely home for sale on a quiet tree-lined street in the "Heritage at the Oaks" development, connected to the MVUSD schools of Tovashal Elementary, Thompson Middle School and Murrieta Valley High School (subject to availability of enrollment capacity; my experience is that the schools make efforts to get your child into the school to which your home's neighborhood typically attends).
Buying a Murrieta Bank-owned REO home is one of the more direct (least time-consuming) home sale transactions in the current market as of September 30, 2010. The listing agent represents the bank that owns the home; at that bank, the REO department's job is to get that home off the books at a fair market value considering all factors: market prices, the condition and location of the home, local comparable sales of homes, etc. In this case, the listing agent is the very experienced Kellee Spillman of Reliable Realty, who kindly agreed to let me blog about her Murrieta bank-owned REO home listing.
This home on Robards has:
- 2375 sq ft of living space,
- 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
- Upgraded spanish-look tile,
- Neutral paint in fair condition,
- About five minutes from the Cal Oaks freeway onramp on the 15 fwy,
- Close to schools, groceries, shopping, Starbucks, pizza and medical,
- About a half mile from the dog park on Jackson at Nutmeg.

I believe bank-owned REO homes in Murrieta are preferable for buyers who want to get into a home relatively quickly these days, compared to starting the short sale process on a home. In a short sale, the seller of the home is an individual that owes the lender (who helped him buy his home) more than the home is worth; that is, the seller's bank is going to have to agree to take "short" of the loan amount owed. That seller's bank generally has procedures in place that require the seller to prove a hardship on top of showing the bank what current market value is; and that can take 4 to 6 months for the "short sale approval."
Compare that to a Murrieta bank-owned REO home sale where the seller is the bank that now owns the home ("the REO bank"). That REO bank's job is to sell the home at market value, without any additional analysis of whether some individual seller is going through a hardship. The question is value; the listing agent brings a buyer's offer (or multiple buyers' offers) to the bank's representative with the sole goal of selling at what the REO bank can get for the home. This results in the process taking 30 to 45 days instead of the 4 to 6 months of a short sale.
