If you go to your County Clerk's website you may be able to pull up the upcoming foreclosure sales at the courthouse. Also you may be able to find upcoming Tax Deed sales. Some County Clerk websites offer easy to find info and even have online bidding so you don't have to trapse down to the courthouse to bid in person.

You will have to pay ALL CASH for 100% of your bid within hours. You also will NOT get a clear title with title insurance and you cannot inspect and cancel if you discover significant defects. This is not for the risk averse and those not willing to pay upfront for title searches and also do a lot of homework before bidding. Some liens will survive the foreclosure and be sure to do your due diligence if buying a Condo. I've heard horror stories of condo associations being able to collect huge sums of money "post" foreclosure. You may want to consult an attorney before bidding on a condo.

Also HOAs and Condos are foreclosing their lien but the mortgage(s) will survive and not get wiped out at foreclosure.

Do your homework and you may capture a bargain. If you don't have ALL CASH then this is not an option for you.

Otherwise, find a local Realtor to get you in to bank owned listings the first day on the market and submit your offer the first day!

Good luck!

I can set you up a search for exactly what you are looking for ie, 3 bedroom 2 bath, 1700 sq ft or larger $120,000 and below, solid surface counter tops etc. (bank owned) as they come on the market.

In Sarasota County alone there are over 1,700 properties that are considered "short sales" or "foreclosures." The properties cover a wide range of different types and prices of homes.

We would be happy to provide you with any of these listings if you would care to provide some additional information that would assist us is narrowing your search so we are not sending you a batch of unwanted information.

Now may not be the time for everyone to buy but it is definitely the time for everyone considering buying to be looking. There are some incredible opportunities for individuals that are ready to make a committment.

Best regards,
Susan & Bil Eckler
