A local Realtor or agent can offer a list of Foreclosure ( aka REO ) or Short Sale properties. You may also now setup a search that specifically includes or specifically excludes these properties.
Both come with important advantages and challenges. You should contact an agent familiar with these transactions in the town or areas you are searching.
If you are searching in the South Shore area... our site offers a list of current foreclosures as well as instant and full MLS Access. It also offers hard to find information such as all sold listings and statistics such as days on market, list vs sold prices and more.
Best of luck in your search!
