- Pre-Foreclosure – the foreclosure process begins when a borrower defaults on loan payments and the lender files a public default notice, called a Notice of Default or Lis Pendens. Buying a property in pre-foreclosure involves approaching the owner and offering to buy the property outright.
- Auction – if the loan is not reinstated by the end of the pre-foreclosure period, potential buyers can bid on the property at a public auction. Buyers often are required to pay in cash at the auction and may not have much time to research the title and condition of the property beforehand; however, a public auction often offers some of the best bargains and avoids the unpredictability of dealing directly with the owner.
- Bank-owned – if the lender takes ownership of the property, either through an agreement with the owner during pre-foreclosure or at the public auction; the lender will usually want to re-sell.
