What is the difference between leasehold** and fee simple*? (See below for definition)


*FEE SIMPLE: Fee simple ownership is probably the most familiar form of ownership to buyers of residential real estate. Depending on where you are from, you may not know of any other way to own real estate. Fee simple is sometimes called fee simple absolute because it is the most complete form of ownership. A fee simple buyer is given title (ownership) of the property, which includes the land and any improvements to the land in perpetuity. Aside from a few exceptions, no one can legally take that real estate from an owner with fee simple title. The fee simple owner has the right to possess, use the land and dispose of the land as he wishes–sell it, give it away, trade it for other things, lease it to others, or pass it to others upon death.

**LEASEHOLD: A leasehold interest is created when a fee simple land-owner (Lessor) enters into an agreement or contract called a ground lease with a person or entity (Lessee). A Lessee gives compensation to the Lessor for the rights of use and enjoyment of the land much as one buys fee simple rights; however, the leasehold interest differs from the fee simple interest in several important respects. First, the buyer of leasehold real estate does not own the land; they only have a right to use the land for a pre-determined amount of time. Second, if leasehold real estate is transfered to a new owner, use of the land is limited to the remaining years covered by the original lease. At the end of the pre-determined period, the land reverts back to the Lessor, and is called reversion. Depending on the provisions of any surrender clause in the lease, the buildings and other improvements on the land may also revert to the lessor. Finally, the use, maintenance, and alteration of the leased premises are subject to any restrictions contained in the lease.

    I watched your video on BPO’s. I am interested in doing these for banks. I am a realtor and private investigator. Can you send me the list for possible clients/ banks. Not sure where you are, but here in CA I was told they changed the name BPO. I had to take some PSA course, cost me about $300. and my time. Now NAR is telling me they don’t know if it’s the same. In any case can you help. I appreciate it anything you can share

  17. July 8, 2014 at 4:58 pm

    Great video series Poncie… will you be doing one on if the seller type (owner-occ, reo, hud, builder, etc.) makes a difference? And what about making “net adjustments” are they neccessary? Looking forward to your next vid!!!

    Poncie, Any idea who got the contract to do BPOs for BoA/CW? I just stopped receiving about 60 BPOs a month from CC that were from BoA homes…I’m guessing they lost the account.

    Hello Poncie!

    I’ve watched your videos over and over again. They are very helpful. I love them. I’m getting an error message while doing a BPO for Main Street Valuations: I was wondering if you could explain what I’ve done wrong in completing the BPO. Im super frustrated. I don’t know what I’ve done wrong. I’m new at this.

    As Is Value should be within the Neighborhood Value Low and Neighborhood Value High
    Competing REO or Corp Owned Listings’ are less than the comparables marked as REO
    Two sold comps should have the same view as the subject.
    I’m so lost here. I recently signed up and have completed 7 for this company already. They have been sending me consistent work. I don’t want to disappoint them.

    Any suggestions of what I’ve done wrong? I’m going to go back to the video.

      Hello Toskanelia,

      The first error is because you are pricing your BPO outside the Neighborhood values. On the Market Section, you entered the low and high prices for the area. Your BPO needs to fall in between these numbers. For example: There are 45 homes for sale within 1 mile from your subject (all listings – no just comps) and the lowest home for sale is $69,000 and the highest is $456,000. Your BPO cannot be priced at $68,900. You can correct that error by changing the neighborhood values.

      Number 2 – is the same as number 1. Change you neighborhood numbers.

      Number 3 – All your views should be equal. VIEWS: Neighborhood. Don’t use comps with lakes, park, etc… views. Get it. They should all be, “neighborhood” views.

    Hi Poncie

    Your step by step BPO videos are very helpful. Thank you:) I just recently got my real estate license and I wanted to do BPOs. How do I get started? Do I still follow the same process for REOs?

    Advice appreciated

  22. June 11, 2012 at 11:51 am


    First of all I want to say-thank you! I say that because though i’m a 15 yr. veteran agent. BPO’s have never been my forte. Though my x has done 5000 or more I feared them and had only done 1/2 dozen or so. Then I watched your tutorial videos and it all made sense and gave me a system-thank you!

    I just subscribed to your blog early this morning. I look forward to learning and networking more with you .

    Hi Poncie,

    I took your class on Wednesday and you mentioned a tool called “contractor repair cost estimator” and that we could download it from your website. However, I am not able to find it. Could you direct me?

    Thank you,
    Kelly Taylor

    BTW, I really enjoyed the class. I thought you gave us some really good advice and inside secrets.
