Dear Rj,
You can choose a Realtor to work with. I can set up an automatic search to send you anything with foreclosure or pre-foreclosure in the remarks. Let me know if I may be of assistance.

Thanks for the question. A website that does not require a credit card is http://www.ushud.com . I use this site for my business to connect with buyers interested in foreclosed or distressed properties. There is NO charge to the buyer.

You will want to contact a professional real estate agent. Do not pay any money to the foreclosure search sites - a lot of those sites are filled with expired and out-of-date listings.

You will also want to read about the foreclosure buying process before you begin your home search. You can read more about foreclosure homes on my website at: http://www.HoustonForeclosureQueens.com

Although I specialize in the Houston area, I have worked as a Realtor in Austin and would be happy to answer any questions you have.

RJ - don't pay to get useless info from RealtyTrac. Again, I suggest you hire an agent. In the meantime, REALTOR.com will have listings shortly after they hit the MLS. That includes foreclosed properties.

The link below is to a post which will give you some info on REOs (post foreclosures) and for more info, you can follow the links to earlier more detailed posts.

I suggest you find a good REALTOR with the experience and expertise to help you identify good properties and help with a smooth transaction. 26-0885

Purchases of foreclosed homes do not have to be difficult, but they can be more complicated. Please feel free to contact me and I will be glad to discuss the process with you.
