Foreclosures (again)

Asked by Hellie, San Diego, CA Sun Jun 1, 2008

I received several locations of new foreclosures from Trulia this morning, but all I get is the street and no address or details about the house. How do I find out about the house -- do I just drive by and see if I can find the house, and hope there is a sign outside? Thanks! PS. Am looking in 92107 zip.

Hello Hellie,

If you have a realtor you like and trust they should be able to help you find the good deal you are looking for whether it is a foreclosure (which most people don't do for a variety of reasons... you probably are looking for a property that is already owned by the bank or pre-foreclosures which are called short sales.

If you don't know have a good honest reputable real estate, get yourself one. I would like to apply for the job as your agent. I can provide you with a lot of service and guidance in finding a good deal. You can check out my website, my profile and client testimonials at the link below.

Wish you all the best.

You mention foreclosures, however do you mean short sales or bank owned?
I can have the weekly Default list sent to you via e-mail for free. It includes the last week's, notice of defaults, the notice of trustee sales and the real estate owned list (reo). If you want the list each day, you will have to pay for the service. You can look at the San Diego Daily Transcript for this type of information too. http://www.sddt.com I agree completely with Ute regarding trustee sales not being a good idea and Travis has a good site too. A knowledgable Realtor can help you find a bank owned or short sale property (I can refer some good ones to you). I would recommend looking at the bank owned ones, particularly the ones that have been listed for a few months. They usually have had some price reductions and are generally "off of the radar screen" for the majority of buyers.

San Diego Foreclosure Search is a free Foreclosure-Only MLS search for all of San Diego county. You can get addresses, MLS Numbers, Photos and other relevant info here. You can even request a showing of the property from a Realtor.

This search allows you to search, sort and save foreclosed listings that match your specific criteria. The technology ties directly into the San Diego Multiple Listing Service, that's what REALTORS pay to use, and updates the listings numerous times a day. You get the information sent to you via email before many agents even know it's on the market. The speed of this search is very useful for knowing what foreclosure inventory is on the market. It's free for you to use 24 hours a day as often as you like. Currently there are only a handful of foreclosures in OB.

Good luck searching for Foreclosure Listings in 92107 - they are definitely the best deals on the market in San Diego at the moment for particular communities, however the beach communities have not seen as much foreclosure activity as inland San Diego.

Hello Hellie. All the foreclosure property info that you'll get on Trulia derives from Realtytrac and you have to go to Realtytrac to get more detailed info, which requires that you subscribe. I think they have a free 1 month trial. You can also sign up for a service offered through foreclosureradar.com They also have a free trial. I hope this helps. If you don't want to subsribe to a service, you can ask a real estate agent in your are to provide you with current lists of foreclosure listings since most foreclosure properties will be offered through the MLS once they are bank owned. If you are interested in pre-foreclosure properties that are not on the market, you won't be able to avoid subscribing to a service, but buying at trustee sales and/or post foreclosure auctions is not necessarily something that I would recommend unless you are a very seasoned and experienced investor who knows how to avoid the pitfalls of buying foreclosure properties. Good luck to you.
