Hi Lauren, it’s very common to be misled by RealtyTrac - see it here on Trulia just about every day. RealtyTrac is not a listing service. They post notices of foreclosure and default pulled from public records.

Hi Varun,

To get a tour of a home you need a realtor to call the property owner to schedule an appointment. I am a buyers agent and work with a lot of short sales and REO's. In this current market there is a lot of great deals to be had. I am finding my buyers with my negotiating getting homes under list. If Sorrento Valley is where you want to live than you need to start looking at a lot of homes in that area to get an understanding of what they are worth in the real estate market. I find the more I educate my buyers are the area they are tyring to buy the more confidence they have with their purchase decision.

If you need any help, please don't hesitate to call me at (760)815-3866 or visit my website which has many resources for buyers at
