Call me for showings and info, not the listing agent, who most likely represents the seller and may lack the skills and objectivity that I would have as your agent. I will show all homes in your price range, provide research and objective opinions on value, condition, positives and negatives on each property. The price (almost always) includes a fee for a buyer's agent to represent & protect you.
Are Repos High Risk? Having an expert broker on your side, who has been through each seller's unique process many times helps. You can buy most government & bank-owned repossessed homes with the same protections as any other home for sale; inspection & financing contingencies and title insurance. Some are sold through auctions and risk level varies.

REO should stand for "Real Estate Opportunity".
Because your chances of getting a bargain are better buying from an institution, rather than a regular owner. Most lenders want to sell as-is and quickly and repos often need work, so a discount is common. In reality, a foreclosed home is called REO (Real Estate Owned) because lenders are in business to loan money, not own homes. Many institutions will have property to sell- from local banks & credit unions to national lenders; Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD or VA.
The selection of foreclosures in the Boise area can include all kinds of real estate from affordable to high-end; homes, condos, townhouses, homes with acreage, luxury homes. Even the occasional multi-family income property; duplex, triplex, fourplex or apartments for rental income.
All available government & bank-owned foreclosed homes can be found in one place- the local MLS, because that's where they get the best exposure and the highest price. You might learn more from the various sellers of foreclosed homes:
