8 Links to 8 data bases.
Tiana, knowing your level of experience in acquiring real estate, whether you are an experienced investor or a citizen following the news and realizes now is the time to invest, is extremely helpful in determining which resources are most suitable for your needs.
These 8 databases previously provided appear generous, but you are still in the situation where the origin, timeliness and reliability of the data is unknown.
Notice a few of those links are auction sites. A novice stumbling into that situation is dangerous. Better know what you doing before you write a check at the auction. The end result of chasing all those foreclosure deal on all those links will be no one will return your call. There's a reason for that.
If you like spinning your wheels in the hunt for foreclosures you should visit with DUNES over on Zillow. You would think the best guidance would be from those active in the business and/or owners of real estate themselves. By the way Dunes, do you own any real estate yet? If I'm correct, you where promoting the idea real estate is a terrible investment.
If you are seeking actionable foreclosure data, let the real estate professional you select know the type of property you are seeking, the purpose of your purchase and the purchase option most suitable for you. (traditional, cash, auction, wholesale) and which one's are not suitable for achieving your investment goals. Without this consultation you will be left in the dust with only 'Why?' keeping you company. If you want first look opportunities you will need to make a commitment to your multi-dimensional agent and get on their 'A-List'.
There are some great deals to be found, but you need to be alerted early, able to act quickly and have a means to connect with the deal makers.
