If you're interested in buying a home, you should have a Realtor working for you as a Buyer's Agent. (It doesn't cost you anything). Besides, the listings you see on here aren't necessarily accurate, or even available. Since you're asking about a foreclosure, I assume you're looking at a FAKE Realty Trac listing. They like to post listings with no address, just street name, then get you to sign up for their "Free" listings of foreclosures. DON'T DO IT. All available listings (including foreclosures) will be listed with a Realtor and will appear in your local MLS. There is no magical list. Call a local Realtor who can show you any property that's active in the MLS.... more
I just listed my home in Essex (Braidwood schools) for rent. It's a custom built (2007) ranch with 3 beds plus bonus room/4th bedroom and 2baths. $1600/month with $400 monthly credit towards purchase if desired. It's on a half acre lot backing up to Highpoint Golf course. It's also for sale by owner for $225,000.
