In Ontario when a borrower defaults on a home mortgage, the bank/lender most often attempts to recover its losses by selling the property using the Power of Sale clause contained in the mortgage. Due to legal fees, foregone interest and other property expenses, the estimated losses to the bank for Power of Sale properties can range from 10 percent to 30 percent of the outstanding loan balances. There are other variables that can affect the losses or costs when a property is sold via power of sale such as the deterioration of the property and the time it takes to process the paperwork.
A clause commonly inserted in a mortgage and deed of trust that grants the creditor or trustee the right and authority, upon default in the payment of the debt, to advertise and sell the property through any means at it's disposal, usually MLS in Ontario or at public auction, without resorting to a court for authorization to do so.
Once the creditor is paid out of the net proceeds, the property is transferred by deed to the purchaser, and the surplus, if any, is returned to the debtor. The debtor is thereby completely divested of any interest in the property and has no subsequent Right of Redemption (recovery of property by paying the mortgage debt in full).

Unfortunately, there is a bit of fantasy in the notion of the fixer upper.
