R. Bradley W…, Home Buyer in Rockledge, FL

How do I find out information on a foreclosed house?

Asked by R. Bradley Witenhafer, Rockledge, FL Thu Jul 31, 2008

I found a house in port st john, FL I want to buy and was told by the neighbor it was foreclosed by the bank but they didn't know the name of the previous owner or the name of the bank who foreclosed it. Where can I get this information? I have the address.

The easiest way to find out if the home is for sale is to ask a Realtor. I know that's the obvious answer, but we can easily determine for you if the house is owned by a bank and how much they have listed they have listed the house for. A Realtor can also, at the same time, show you a list of the other bank-owned properties that are for sale in the area , as well as how much other bank-owned houses have recently sold for. If you email me with your email address and the property address, I would be glad to send the information to you. I hope this information is helpful!

It might appear in the tax records, or the fastest way might be to contact a local realtor--they have access to more information, and are pretty savvy about finding that information. You might have a realtor in that area who does a lot of foreclosure sales and would be really great about finding the information for you. It doesn't cost you anything--they get paid when a property sells, and the seller generally pays the fee--happy hunting!!

Banks or the 3rd party who is appointed to handle bank foreclosures usually wont work with the general public. Contact a local Trulia agent who can assist you. If legal proceedings are not complete it can take 2 -4 months prior house being placed on the market for sale.
