There a few ways you can find out if there are any short sales in a new condo building.

- You can write a letter and mail each owner asking if they would like to sell their condo.
- You can call or visit the real estate offices near the condo building to ask about any available units.
-You can go online to sites like RealtyTrac.com to find pre-foreclosures.

I hope this answer has helped you.

For short sales in the condo building in which you are interested or anywhere else, you should contact a local real estate professional for help. Pick are Realtor with whom you feel comfortable and who you feel can meet your needs. If you do not know anyone ask a friend or relative for a recommendation. Most people know a Realtor that they would be happy to recommend. Best part is that your Realtor comes free to you since the Realtor's commission is usually paid by the seller.

You should find an agent that deals with real estate in your zip code who has the capacity to search the MLS in more selective ways than the public is able to. Realtors can pull up active listings or sold by address, street number, a radius search of an area. I would suggest that you ask a realtor to explain to you the difference between a foreclosure and short sale, so that you can decide what is in your best interest. There are lots of agents listed on this website as well as http://www.Realtor.com, who can probably help you by phone and email. Best, Terry Bell, CPS RE, Santa Rosa, CA
