I am currently tracking a foreclosed property for a buyer I'm working with. By checking the court records and seeing that the bank was recently awarded a final judgement, I've told my buyer to antipate the property will be listed relatively soon.
Working with an agent who's willing to do the research is key if you are looking at foreclosed properties.

Usually,it is very difficult to get any information from a bank that is foreclosing on a property until they assign a person to work on the account. Once they do it is still normally a long way from being presented to the market for sale. I agree with the other agents here that you can can be put on a email alert and once it hits the market you will be notified. Ane one of us can provide that service for you.

You can contact a local agent (find one by clicking "Find a Pro" in the green Trulia bar above, then search by zip code desired) and ask them to set you up on "an Alert" by street, community, zip code, etc. The moment any new homes hit the market in the designated zones you and the agent will receive a notification into the computer. Then you contact each other and go see the place before anyone else. Best of all this should be a Free service from your agent. Was this answer helpful?
