Some things are free Dee

For browsing actual foreclosures listed for sale ect.. you may find this useful


The Banks and the Gov. have created sites to provide the public with information on the Bid/Purchase process as some are different than others and to provide access to their properties for sale listings..(REO/Foreclosures) They all provide addresses and listing Agent info..most have photos ect. and are updated regularly..



Sites like.... http://www.wamuproperties.com/ .... http://www.hud.gov/homes/index.cfm

https://www.citimortgage.com/Mortgage/Oreo/SearchListing.do ... http://www.homepath.com/

The links to these Bank and Gov. sites can be found here.... http://www.mortgagenewsdaily.com/wiki/REO_Database_List.asp http://www.biggerpockets.com/bank-reo.html

For finding information on Tax sales/Public records this may be helpful..

http://www.fsrforeclosures.com has a big listing with lots of bank owned properties. Its easy to navigate too because the properties are shown on a map all together. I've been browsing this one for a while. Hope this helps.

We have added a new link on our site of Bank Owned Foreclosures. You may search this site for free. But your best bet is still a real estate agent. They have daily alerts set up to monitor your preferences. The best ones do not last long on the market. Working with an agent gives you the best chance of snagging up a good deal.

Laura,

If you are looking at pre-foreclosures, there are numerous services but investors pay for them as will you. There are certainly good deals there on occassion but these days there are just as many in MLS. If you are looking for deals, you may want to look in areas that have been more highly impacted by the current market conditions. Last weeks Orlando Sentinel will highlight those areas for you. I have been working with buyers who are finding great deals in Poinciana. If you decide to branch out of Orlando proper, I would welcome the opportunity to show you the deals in Poinciana.

Laura,
Contact a Realtor, that is your best option. As the homes hit the market they are listed in the Local MLS. ( Multiple Listing Service) Your Professional Realtor has access to this. The good deals do go fast. We ( Realtors) see them first well, you get the idea.
Hope this helps.

Laura,

Foreclosure = REO (real estate owned). These properties are sold via Real Estate Agents. -- REO AGENTS

The "best" of these properties are gobbled up within a few hours.

The advice I can give is interview Real Estate Agents - who will work for you. Give you advice. And Negotiate for you.

The best part of all this is - the "seller" pays the comission -- which is a Win-Win for you.

The previous agent is correct - they can just throw you on a "drip" list and send you properties --

do you want to be on the back burner or do you want a TEAM of agents to go to WAR for you?

I am excited to apply for the job.

All bank owned homes are listed in the Local MLS and would show up in one form or another on sites such as trulia, realtor.com etc. The problem is narrowing down your search results to only those that are bank owned homes. I can set up a website for you with all the Bank owned homes in an area you want, and send the link to your email address.
Just send me a quick email of what your looking for in the house, and I can send it over. GregMTraub@gmail.com
