You can take the free trial on RealtyTrac and cancel before the free trial period ends. You can also have a real estate agent that specializes in short sales help you find them. Lastly I suggest you Google "short sales Brooklyn" or any other search term you think may help., You will be surprised with the amount of information you can get by doing that.
Why is it that you are looking for a short sale? If the answer is because you believe you can get a better deal, then maybe what you really need is simply a good deal. If that is the case there are many ways to find them besides short sales. You are really looking for a motivated seller!
If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Good luck!

Your best bet is to identify and begin working with a great local Realtor in your chosen shopping area. Your Realtor will be happy to do the legwork for you to identify properties that meet your needs and price range. Especially with regards to short sales you want an experienced Realtor who can tell the "good" from the "bad" and the "ugly."
