I do think you need a realtor to help you out with this, however. Truth is it won't cost you a dime and they can really help. Let me know if you do not have one and I can refer you a great one. Call us if you need to get prequalified!

Ms. Nik,

If photos are taken they will be on any free site with homes that list properties.

Your best bet is The MLS. Like they say, get a Realtor that you feel comfortable working with, doesn't cost you anything to work with a reliable Realtor.

Hello Ms. Nik,

Best place is on the MLS.

Usually, at least in my experience, if there are no pictures it's due to conditions (doesnt' show well). Therefore your only resource is to actually go see it and for that you need a Realtor. Find a broker your feel comfortable with, usually our services are at no charge to you.

Good luck!

Like Matt said, the MLS. An agent can set you up with a search that will provide all the photons available. more detailed info is also part of what an agent gets when they (like me) subscribe to Realty Trac. I pass this on to my clients as part of my service to them.Most REOs are available to be seen via appointment, so it would seem the easy way for you to get what you are looking for is to work with an agent.

the insides are normally in condition that allows for a mortgage

The validity of the listing information is entirely up to home much info the Listing Agent is wiling to provide. Many times providing interior pictures is too much effort for them, therefore you will only see an exterior shot.

Work with a Realtor to help you identify your goals.

Ms. Nik1,

It may be best to find a broker who will work with you on your goal. Sometimes pictures on the MLS but many times Brokerages that obtain foreclosed listings only post the front of the building.

If you have a particular area that interest you most find a Broker who specializes in the area.

Best of Luck,

That would be a good one! Most REO's do not show many, if any pics and many of the pics they show are designed to show the property in the best condition. They intentionally leave out pics that show 'problems' because that is what they are instructed to do by the banks!
It's a lot of BS, but that is how the REO industry operates. THe MLS will show any pics, if they exist. Otherwise you just need to make an appointment.

You definitely shouldn't have to pay to see pictures of properties. Any realtor should be able to find and show you the available pictures via MLS. If there aren't any pictures to see, you can always see the property in person too!
