For commercial real estate in foreclosure and bank owned real estate (REOs), owners and banks alike need to know the difference between “fair market” value and “quick disposition” value in order to determine the potential equity position or charge-off liability. Regardless of whether the real property is residential or commercial the fair market value in an ever changing market is crucial to reducing non- performing inventory of REO real estate.
Owners of real estate which are in foreclosure are faced with many challenges. Some are unwilling to allow an inspection of the property or if they’ve already abandoned the property, they may have neglected care of the home for a period of time, or even purposely caused damage.
