What are Power of Sale loans?

A power of sale listing on the real estate MLS... this type of listing is especially attractive to home buyers, but why? Knowing what a power of sale is before indulging into what Power of Sale loans are, is a great way to get familiar with why these types of loans are important. Any home that is being held by a mortgage loan and its lender can legally take possession of that home should the home owner default on the mortgage loan in any way. If the mortgage loan lender ends up sizing a home and its property, then this home will be listed on the real estate MLS listing as a power of sale. When a lender places a home on the MLS as a power of sale, this means that by law, the lender MUST price the home and any property (if applicable) at fair market value, meaning the home will be sold at ‘as in’ condition at a market value purchase price (so a fair price point with no haggling to lower the price).
