It is the choice of the individual agent and company. At REMAX Professionals we do a professional shoot with atleast 15 pictures and a virtual tour on every home we list, unless asked not to by a seller. Look for & ask about what each agent and company plans to do when listing a home.
Also pay attention to the companies that take the time to do a professional job and supply you with the pictures on their homes, that will also give you insight into that companies standards and be a great place to choose a buyer's agent to help you.
If a home does not have pictures and you are interested in it as a buyers agent I can go take and send you the pictures :)... more
Thanks for the answers on this I do have an agent and she has been working very hard on this for me. As for switching lenders we were about to and then Wells Fargo implied they could have this all fixed soon and now here we are a week later and still getting the run around.... more
Foreclosures of various kinds that have gotten to the Campbell County multi-list can be researched by any Realtor. Until they get to the multi-list, there aren't a lot of ways to buy them as foreclosures.
Although Trulia has a link to foreclosures, I have found that many web sites like Trulia have a difficult time keeping listings up to date. New ones aren't on, and ones already sold are still on.
Contact me if you would like me to set up an automatic e-mail update of the new foreclosures or properties that were not and then change, including changes in price.

If the foreclosure takes place, someone will knock on your door and/or leave a notice on your door with your options. Heather mentioned cash for keys. That will be one option. As a tenant, you also have rights. Another option will likely be to stay and pay rent to the bank, however you will have to agree to cooperate with real estate showings when they put the property on the market. If the listing agent reports to the bank that you are not cooperating with agents and making appointments, you will be evicted. If you don't want to be bothered with showings, I suggest you negotiate cash for keys, and take the money.
Do keep in mind that just because a foreclosure sale is scheduled for August 24th, it doesn't mean it is definitely going to sale! These sales get cancelled (or adjourned) all the time, sometimes several times before they actually happen. You can usually find the foreclosure sales on your county sheriff's website or somewhere online to see if it went through.... more
