REO Services

Lenders, mortgage servicers, investors, and asset management companies acknowledge the inherent challenges of REO properties. Advantage’s Default Division is the industry leader in providing title and escrow services for bank-owned properties on a national platform. Our staff will collaborate with your team to provide a service focused on your business model. Our lasting tenure in this arena has exposed our team to most of the REO asset communication portals in the industry, which allows for a seamless boarding process.

If a home buyer wishes to purchase a home or an investor looks to add to their portfolio with the acquisition of hundreds of properties, Advantage has the resources to manage and expedite the transactions.

Deed in Lieu

If the drawn-out foreclosure process is avoidable via a Deed in Lieu, our Default Division is positioned to provide the necessary services for the lender to reacquire an asset. Our vast network of local attorneys prepare the Deed in Lieu and accompanying Estoppals per local guidelines and statutes. Our ability to service Deed in Lieu with or without title insurance provides the lender with cost-effective and streamlined solutions. Once the Deed in Lieu process is complete then our staff is ready to represent you with the new REO asset.

Loan Modifications Title Services

If loss mitigation determines that a non-preforming asset qualifies for a loan modification, the Advantage team can seamlessly service your specific needs as the industry recognized expert. Our ability to streamline the title process behind loan modifications allows for quick and effective solutions to a growing alternative to default.

Quiet Title Actions

On seldom occasions, inherent title issues cannot be resolved by traditional means. Our rigorously vetted network of attorneys can provide title action services in many local jurisdictions. Once this process is complete then our team can insure your asset.
