Most of the foreclosure lists you will find to be combersom and not very helpful. Since banks hire agents to list all their properties, and since in Brentwood many REO properties wind up with multiple offers, you will really want to work with an agent, especially as a first time home buyer. You'll want to choose an agent who will take the time to carefully explain the bank addendums and what your risk is with any given REO listing. If you want a website to shop from, my suggestion in Home Buyer Scouting Report. Use the link provided to see a demo of the site and it's benefits (it does allow you to search only for foreclosures if you like). Let me know if I can be of further assistance or if you'd like to be able access the HBSC site.
