What types of real estate does the FDIC sell?

Where can I find more details on FDIC real estate?

The online listing for each individual property owned by the FDIC will typically include the name, phone number, and e-mail address (if available) of the local real estate agent and/or broker, and the FDIC real estate contractor. Any of these parties will be able to provide more details on any property of interest.

How does the FDIC market and sell real estate?

Properties are generally sold individually through listings with local real estate agents and/or brokers, who are hired by FDIC real estate contractors to assist in the marketing and disposition of properties on behalf of the FDIC. Occasionally, the FDIC conducts open “outcry” and online real estate auctions.

All properties are sold on an “as is, where is, with all faults” basis. The FDIC makes no guarantee, warranty, or representation, express or implied, as to the location, quality, kind, character, size, description, or fitness for any use or purpose, now or hereafter with regard to any of the properties listed.

Where can I find information on FDIC real estate auctions?

Auction announcements can be found on the FDIC Special Real Estate Sales Events web page at Advertising may also appear in local, regional or national newspapers or other media in each event’s local and/or regional area.

If, after that, you need further assistance, contact the FDIC Owned Real Estate Department at or (800) 568-9161, and be prepared to provide the subject property’s name and location, deed or deed recordation, and/or any other additional title documents.

How are list prices established?

List prices are established by a variety of factors which may include, but are not limited to, independent appraisals, broker opinions of value, property condition, time on the market, and/or current market conditions. List prices are subject to change without notice.

When the FDIC receives my offer, how is it evaluated?

Various criteria are considered when evaluating offers from prospective purchasers. They include, but are not limited to: appraised value; purchase offer amount; earnest money deposit amount; how the purchase will be funded (e.g., cash or financing); due diligence, inspection, and closing periods; net sales proceeds; and the submission by the prospective purchaser of all complete, fully executed documents required by the FDIC.

The FDIC reserves the right to accept, reject, and/or counter any offer. While reviewing such offers, the FDIC further reserves the right to continue its sales efforts, including responding to any other inquiries or offers from other parties concerning the purchase of a property.

Does the FDIC provide seller financing?

The FDIC does not provide seller financing for the purchase of real estate.
