Yes. Here is a site of a mortgage representative that has a way to search for them on his site. I use this often, even as a Realtor, because it has everything in one place.

Hope that helps.

CP Shoot me an email or register on my site at I would be happy to send you a list of foreclosures and email you daily updates. In addition, if short sales are of interest we are working with several sellers that are behind on payments and looking to work short sales with their lenders. Thanks!

No need to sign up nor pay for any foreclosure sites--for free accurate and up to date information consider working with an agent--if you are referring to RealtyTrac ads--keep in mind that some of the information may be inaccurate, unreliable and misleading--you could be looking at a lis-pendens--notice of default--or some kind of filing fee, etc., some of those properties may not be for sale yet, and some may never be if the owner satisfies the default--again, consider working with an agent.

Hi, CP,

There's a great way to see foreclosures at the same time (or even before) those sites get the information! Find yourself a great agent who follows foreclosures. Odds are that the agent you want already subscribes to a locally focused Foreclosure Reporting Service that picks up that data on the day it is posted at the courthouse. By the way, those agents are usually pretty quiet about what they do. Ignore the hucksters who promise quick $$$. Ask local Brokers who they have that works the foreclosure scene. They know.

Build a mutually beneficial relationship by referring business to the agent and by doing your share of the leg work to screen the suspects for real prospects. Most "deals" are found by walking and knocking, not by reading the same info that thousands of others already know. Understand that investors each have their own criteria - what's a perfect deal for you won't be of interest to another and vice versa.

Build a network of competent and intelligent colleagues who all want new info on foreclosures and are willing to share. Your Mastermind group may include other investors, contractors, private lenders, attorneys, Inspectors, tax professionals, etc. Meet once a month to review and evaluate what each of you has uncovered. Let the others know exactly what you are looking for, and keep an eye out for what they want. Keep it small and smart.

Before you know it, you'll be knee deep in SOLID information, and you'll know how to move on it. You'll have some seasoned eyes to help you see what you are looking at, and some help if things get serious. Great fortunes (and small ones) are rarely made by lone wolves. Given the state of the economy, you'll have plenty of time to learn the game.

Good luck,
