I certainly can find out for you if a home is in foreclosure or pre-foreclosure for you. It is not hard to do! It actually would take only 10-15 minutes to get a report back. All I would need is the property address. If you want you can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know how I can help you!

If you drop me a line with the address of the home you are considering I can help pull some reports for you, that is if you have not already hired a realtor to help you.

If you are looking at Realtor.com, then it should say that it is in foreclosure. Better yet, talk to one of your trusted agents who will give you more info on the property or other properties in the area. Realtors will be happy to help you out and ultimately, earn your business.
