Keep in mind that, when you interview and try to find a realtor to work with, not all agents can help with foreclosure homes. The process takes much longer and the success rate is lower than regular purchase. Agents earn the same % of fees. Also, it requires more expertise: legal (to deal with lender/bank); repair (foreclosed homes not in good condition); and financial (special mortgage, etc). But the reward to the buyer can be high.

Hire a Realtor without any more hesitation, as a buyer it will not cost you a dime, they will earn their paycheck from the proceeds of the sale.

Thank you for your question about finding out more information about a specific property in your neighborhood. The County Recorder records all information regarding foreclosures and judicial foreclosures are recorded by the court as well. I recommend calling a real estate agent who is signed up with RealtyTrac because this information is contained in their database and they could provide it to you easily. Submit a request from their website or sign up yourself for access.

Hi Moaneser,
There are a number of web sites offering this information. Some of the sites are fee based. I am not sure whats available in your area but just google the question and I am sure you will find the information.

I would expect your first inclination would be to call a Realtor:
If you are interested in investing in REO's, you would need to have a Realtor in your corner.
Realtors, acting as a Buyer's Agent are free to you,
Their council and research are, likewise, free.
Probably the best deal of your life!

Good luck and may God bless

There are many ways to find out this information. The best way would be to contact a realtor so that they can tell you about the foreclosures in your specific neighborhood.
