First, those property descriptions are NOT listings. They're advertisements to get you to sign up with/subscribe to RealtyTrac. Many of those properties aren't available. They've never been available. They never will be available. Other properties have long since been sold.
Second, why pay for questionable information when you can get accurate information for free? Any Realtor can provide the same information as RealtyTrac . . . except it'll be accurate.
Don't do it.
Don't waste your money or your time. Realty trac provides half-info and not up to date. I once subscribed to their service for agents and ended up breaking my membership because what they promised was never delivered. Worst part, I got calls all the time from buyers like you asking about specific listings in the RT website and my response was always "not acurate, not available, old information, etc."....not the service my clients or I deserved.
Find a local agent and ask them to give you access to their customer MLS feed. It is a free service, and you will be able to see every home in foreclosure or short-sale hitting your local market, with info updated every 30 minutes. Yes, that is a free service from your local Realtor.
