The realtor.com website has a good explanation of the closing process on an REO property:

“Closing an REO purchasePurchasing an REO is a complex process. Numerous bank workers at many levels of authority have to approve your offer. They will probably counter offer. You will have to be a savvy negotiator to purchase the home at a price you want.An offer on an REO sale should be written in a specific manner that includes a cover letter, stated willingness to buy the home in “as is” condition and an escape clause that lets you out of the deal if later inspection reveals extensive property damage. You usually may not inspect the REO before you send your offer. Choosing a price to offer takes research and thought. To increase the chances of your offer’s acceptance, offer at or close to asking price. If your research reveals that the house is overpriced, you might decide to offer below asking price, and include an explanation of your reasoning in the cover letter.When you buy an REO, you stand a good chance of buying a good home at a good value. Given the level of complication, you will benefit from hiring a team of experts to assist you.”
