If you check out this information on Trulia- you will be referred to a Real Estate Agent. There are no magic lists! Lists that you pay for will send you running in circles. Hire a Realtor to help you. Banks and HUD both list their foreclosure properties with area Real Estate Agents and are available to look at through the Multiple Listing Service. Good luck.

Hi Alisha,

Trulia has this information. If you access the link below and choose the city of your interest you'll then see your search results load on the next page. On the left side of that page under Listing Type you can select Foreclosure to see only those listings in that area.

Best Wishes,

Sheboygan, WI posts Sheriffs Sale Auctions online. Just google Sheboygan WI Sheriffs Sale. Other cities may do the same. Avoid paying for the service through a "Free Foreclosure Listings" portal. Those can be old listings and a potential waste of money. Or, better still, work with a local agent who knows the foreclosure process. They can explain the ins and out. Look for "Short Sale" or "Pre Foreclosure" listings. Again, contact an agent who knows the process well.

Foreclosure reality check.... Seasoned investors who buy foreclosures know the REO manager at the bank and get "off market" deals. They never have to bid or find a place to learn what's available.

FOR ALL OTHERS: The only "sellers market" in america is the foreclosure market. Don't expect any deals from a foreclosure as the bidding process brings 20-30 people to bid on almost every deal. A deal that was already priced at market.

It's easier to get a deal by going to a realtor, asking them to find the oldest property on the market and start dropping discounted offers. In addition, you won't have to wait 30-60 days to hear an answer.
