Real Estate Foreclosure

 Real estate foreclosure is the process of repossessing a piece of real property such as a home.  It is a legal process used by the mortgage holder when the owner of the property is in arrears on the mortgage payments.

In strict foreclosure the mortgage holder takes title and possession of the real estate foreclosed in satisfaction of the mortgage loan.

Most states require a different type of real estate foreclosure process.  In a more common type of foreclosure instead of reverting to the ownership of the mortgage holder, the property is auctioned by the county sheriff or court officer.  Often the mortgage holder will place a bid at the amount of the remaining mortgage to insure that the property is not sold for an amount less than is still owed on the mortgage.  Should other bidders bid the price higher than the amount of the remaining loan, the party foreclosed upon receives the equity portion of the winning bid after foreclosure expenses.  This discourages the mortgage holder from forcing a real estate foreclosure for the purpose of grabbing an owner's equity.
