There is a huge learning curve to doing this as well as if you do find someone, they can't just sell you a property, because most likely they will need to short sale their home.... who will do the negotiations. If you use it to find properties that the bank owns.... most banks will not sell a property until it has hit the open market.
As far as getting a good deal their is nothing that beats market knowledge and negotiating skills that a Realtor can handle for you.
My guess is it will be a lot of work for you for nothing.
I hope this information helps! Best Wishes!
Realty Trac listings would get you a better deal it is just a web site that lists foreclosures. If you are looking for a foreclosure I would suggest you seek out a Realtor that will represent you as a Buyers Agent and also is experienced in negotiating.
They can certainly help you get the best deal.

Searching for homes on public web sites can be frustrating and very time consuming.
They are often misleading, not up-to-date, inaccurate, etc.
Frankly, most of them are a waste of time.
And besides, the best deals come from working with a good Buyer's Agent.
Log on to the site below to receive lists of properties available that are exactly the type you have an interest.
The lists will be accurate and up-to-date, and save you a lot of time.
Let me know the size, type and location of houses you have an interest
and I will email you regularly with what is available.
