I also wanted to let you know there's a program offered through MHDC that allows buyers who purchase a foreclosure a credit of 20% of the sale price, up to $14,999. You can get information on the credit at my website http://letsgetitsold.com/Showcase14.Htm
The Banks and the Government have created sites to give the public access to their properties for sale and these sites also contain much other information like the bid/purchase process each of them uses.
Sites like these... https://www.bidselect.com/servlet/RouterServlet?p_build_page
http://www.countrywide.com/purchase/f_reo.asp ... http://www.homepath.com/
You can find the links to these sites and much more here... http://www.mortgagenewsdaily.com/wiki/REO_Database_List.asp .... http://www.biggerpockets.com/bank-reo.html
If you feel like browsing give them a look..
Good luck, Dunes
There is no individual website, regardless of what they try to tell you or sell you, that will list all the foreclosures other than the MLS, unless it pulls the data from the MLS. The VA has it's own site, HUD uses First Preston and they have 3 or 4 sites that they list on because the company that they pay to do it, runs the sites. And that company also does some bank foreclosures, but other banks use other websites. Freddie Mac uses a different website than Fannie May, etc., that's why we typically use the MLS, since once the home is listed there, it's really on the market and available. Sometimes when it's listed on the other sites, it's still coming soon and that could be months away and the bank won't talk to you about it until they are ready to release it.
NOW, most people get tired of trying to find them on their own, so they set up with a Realtor to email them the info on homes that match what they are looking for as they come on the market. ,
