Boise ID Metro Foreclosed Homes For Sale
Updated 11/16/18 Today, just 5 govt/bank-owned foreclosed homes for sale and available in the entire Treasure Valley (Ada/Canyon counties). To see all of your home choices- ask me for listings on all homes for sale that meet your criteria.
See MLS listings for all current repos for sale in my 3 links:
Ada County Foreclosed Homes For Sale- includes Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Kuna and Star.
Canyon County Foreclosed Homes For Sale- includes Nampa, Caldwell, Middleton and outlying smaller towns.
Also see my HUD Homes page.
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? Not with an expert broker on your side, who has been through the process hundreds of times and is familiar with each seller's unique process. 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. A few are sold through auctions, where risk level varies depending on the auction.

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 have property to sell- from local bank to national lender; 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:
