Hello, My office is located in TriBeCa and I keep abreast of the TriBeCa and SOHO Markets. I do not know of any Bank Owned Properties or forclosures in either neighborhood, I don't recall any recent short sales either. Most of the forclosures have been occuring in the outer boroughs, the highest concentration was in East Brooklyn. Best of Luck
Properties that are on the market whether bank, investor, sponsor or privately owned, would be found in databases that agents have access to. Your best course of action is to work with a reputable agent who specializes in NYC.
