Work with a Real Estate Agent so that you can have access to the most up-to-date information. A Real Estate Agent can set up a personal website with your unique foreclosure search criteria that will be updated from the MLS daily direct to your email.

The best way is to work with an agent. Most MLSs define if the property is a foreclosure or not but this infomation field may not be available to the "public". Get a Realtor and ask them to sign you up for a free automated email program that will send you new listings that match the criteria you establish, which could include "foreclosed"! Good Luck! It's a great time to buy.

Hire a buyers agent and let them send you a list of ones in your area. When it comes to foreclosures you have two main options.

1. Buy them at the court house steps.

2. Buy them when they are listed on the market.

You will have some competition as these deals are being bought up quite rapidly from investors, hedge funds, and normal buyers.

A great online resource is It is well known for foreclosures and foreclosure/housing data. It is a pay service.

If you are ready to take action - You can go online to and see the latest listed homes with no email registration or sign up for the Daily Foreclosure Report which sends the listings directly to your email.

Since you are asking about the Suwanee, Georgia area I'll make it easy for you. Go to my website at . Once there, go to the left column and click on "Suwanee". When that window opens you will have your choice of two columns to review. One is foreclosures. One is not. Choose the price range in which you have interest in the left column and up will pop lots of choices for you to review. If you see anything there that you would like to see, call me at 678-542-1386 and we'll make a plan to go take a look.

If you are interested in purchasing a foreclosure, I highly recommend that you consult with a real estate professional who is knowledgeable on this subject. Purchasing a foreclosure can be a very complicated and frustrating process and a good real estate professional who specializes in these types of transactions will make the process much more manageable.

If you considering purchasing a foreclosure (also known as “REO” properties), know that HUD, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac own the majority of the foreclosures in the U.S. If you would like to view the homes that are currently available through these entities ON A MAP, you can see the inventory here: This website, called the REO Portal, contains all REO properties publicly marketed through Fannie Mae’s, Freddie Mac’s and FHA’s websites and the data is updated on a weekly basis

It is important to know that the real estate professionals associated with these properties are “listing agents” and are there to represent the seller. You should seek out the help of a “selling” or “buyer’s” agent who can help you negotiate the terms of a purchase contract if you wish to place an offer on one of these homes. Know that if you want to place an offer on a HUD foreclosure you HAVE to have a “registered” real estate professional submit the offer on your behalf.

Many of these homes would benefit from a Renovation Loan like the FHA 203(k) program. This mortgage program allows the buyer to purchase a home with FHA financing and then have the home renovated after closing. You can view more information on Renovation Loans here:

Best of luck to you during your home search!

Hi Bowling,
It would be my pleasure to assist you by setting you up on the agent website so that you can receive listings as soon as they hit the market. Anna from Nassau, NY made a good point. It's always best to work with an agent as we can provide you with more accurate information on properties and help you in your home search/purchase.

Please feel free to call me at 770-617-3982 or email me at

Thank you for your time, and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Keep in mind that not all online foreclosure listings may be accurate, therefore why not consider working with an agent of your own. Not all foreclosures are such great bargains, therefore don't overlook some traditional sales during your search...

You can go to and specify foreclosures or have an agent do the search for you. Most times the properties show active (available) but it may have an accepted offer and an agent can sort tru it.
