If you want foreclosures specifically, you can use HUD.com, hubzu.com, among other sites.They typically will be advertised like any other property on MLS. There is a section that says lender owned of which will be marked yes. There are some banks and law firms that deal with a lot of foreclosures and are known for that. The banks have asset managers for each region and the asset managers have Real Estate contacts to list the properties. You can also check your local DPW and they will have a list of vacant properties that are going into or already in Foreclosure. Hope this helps. I have other ways of getting this information. If you need some help, call me. Remember, as a buyer, there is no fee that you pay to have buyer representation. And it's best to have a professional helping with your search and through the offer process. I am a Full-time Realtor.... more

We've lived here since April. At first I couldn't sleep, but I don't' hear it anymore. It doesn't run very often but there usually is one around midnight and sometimes at 2 am. I wear silicone earplugs and that does the trick. Our unit is at the back, so maybe 50-100 feet from the train. If they are going very fast, it might shake the house, but I don't feel that anymore either. It only runs rarely during the day, and for a few minutes it might be loud. Other than the rare train, the neighborhood is pretty quiet (except for the construction of new homes, at the moment!)... more
I believe because it's a disclosure and not a contract there is no need for an expiration date. i.e. I am disclosing that I am a real estate agent and since that isnt going change it never expires... more
