Are you primarily interested in distressed properties or a low priced properties? Because not every foreclosure/short sale is low priced just as not every low priced home is distressed or a short sale/foreclosure. Due to the overwhelming numbers of default mortgages, banks are utilizing real estate professionals to expose these properties to the greatest number of buyers as possible. More and more banks are pricing these properties for a brisk sale.
My best advice to you to know about these properties the minute they hit the market is to receive a Stratus update daily. Contact me if you would like to receive that list.
