Beware of the free foreclosure lists. Most are simply lures to get you to sign up for paid programs.

In CA, the foreclosure process lasts a minimum of 120 days. The foreclosure lists report homes that have NOD's (Notice of Default) filed, which doesn't meant that the home will actually be sold at a foreclosure auction. The homeowner who is in default does have the opportunity to either bring the loan current, refinance, negoiate with the bank, or attempt to sell the home on their own as a short sale. The short sale process itself can take many months, so quite often auction dates are postponed several times.

Many times the NOD is for a second mortgage (or 3rd or 4th mortgage), so the first mortgage holder will likely take some action prior to the auction date. Also, many of these lists will have multiple postings for the same property, since they report each time a NOD is filed.

You'll find many homes with NOD's filed listed on the MLS as Short Sales. Contact a local Realtor for information on short sales in your area.

Realty Trac or auctions are great sites

Also, call foreclosures and find out who the attorneys are and call the attorneys for their list

One way to find foreclosure listings, is call a professional Realtor and they can send you all the foreclosure listings. However, in today's market, foreclosure listings are not always the least expensive listings. I suggest you give your Realtor your criteria on what you are looking for and the maximum price you are willing to spend and then from there you will get a list of properties that match your wants.

HUD Homes are a great alternative to buying bank owned foreclosures. They present an excellent buying opportunity...especially for those utilizing FHA financing. You can save thousands by buying a HUD home.

Check out this blog post for more details on these benefits:…

We are hosting a free buyer workshop on May 26th where we will be discussing the process and benefits of buying a HUD home in San Diego. See the web reference slow for details on the workshop.

Go to All of is 100% free No subscriptions, no ads, no popups just foreclosures directly from the trustee. These are homes that are up for auction, if they don't sell at auction they revert back to the lender and become REO's (bank owned).

If you want a free list of REO's (also known as foreclosures) any Realtor in you area can provide this to you for free. For Seattle area foreclosures visit

You've got to watch out for a lot of these guys offering lists of foreclosures, and distress sales or access to foreclosure listings. They usually have some sort of alterior motive.

Here are a few government sites (.gov) No strings attached:

It's hard to filter out all the noise when looking for free information. Bottom line, if you're serious about buying a home and putting an offer in, a few dollars for accurate information isn't that big of a deal. A lot of the free sites I've checked out are haphazard. Best bet...

1. Pick up the phone and call a good agent
2. Go with one of the real foreclosure websites, the big ones. (and just cancel before your free trial runs out, don't forget)

You can search for foreclosures on my web site free - a printed list would be outdated the day you got it. Make sure you search online on an accurate Foreclosure Search Site. Good Luck.

A Realtor serving your geographic area can provide regular free listings. Or you can go to your local courthouse for the listings. Generally, also, the listings are published regularly in major area newspapers--usually in the classified ads section.
