There are some very good investments available outside of the obvious REO deals. In fact, most of the commercial REO investment properties sell at close to fair market value - some even exceed that price point. We are working closely with some banks to bring the better investments to the table. For various reasons (cash reserve issues, publicity, flooding the market, etc) banks are hesitant to foreclose on their bad commercial loans. The solution is a sale of the note/deed of trust to an investor at a discount. This then allows the investor to foreclose or deed in lieu the real property. One deal that we are reviewing is fully occupied and almost a 10 cap rate for an excellent building. We are also looking for investors to pair with these offerings.
