REO Escrow

Secured Trust Escrow handles every aspect of the REO by providing full service and management as a neutral third-party to close the REO transaction within the guidelines set forth in the contract while serving as the depository of funds and escrow agent.

The basic REO process begins with mutual acceptance of the Purchase Agreement, much like a regular real estate transaction. Buyers must remember that they are not in escrow with a homeowner, however, as a bank or lender is the seller, and the financial institution has strict procedures

during the process.

As the seller is a corporate institution with a large volume of properties, the typical timeline of a standard escrow does not apply in an REO environment. To ensure REO escrow transactions are closed as quickly as possible, the officers at Secured Trust Escrow proactively manage and resolve any problems before a delay can occur and monitor the performance of the transaction daily.
