Hi Durelle,

If you'd like, I have an automatic foreclosure list on my website which is updated daily and is free to use. It will show you every home listed as a foreclosure in the Hernando County MLS (right now there are 228 available).

You can sign up at… All we require is a name and email address to register so we can send you the properties.

If you have any questions, you can contact me through the website.

Hope it's helpful!

Check your local newspaper. Foreclosure auctions are public notices so get recorded at your registry of deeds and must be advertised.. The public process usually starts with a newspaper notice of Land Court Soldiers' and Sailors' judgment. After that is run, if the foreclosure is proceeding, a newspaper foreclosure notice should be run in advance with the date and time of the foreclosure auction. You can also look on sites like Hope that helps.

Good luck with yoru search-

I was forced to sale to avoid an unjust foreclosure. How do i research to get the dates that foreclosure proceedings began or were filed so I can fight back?

Foreclosures are a public record and you do not have to pay if you get the information yourself at the county courthouse or registry of deeds whichever you have. If you are looking at realty trac, the complile information, give you a teaser and want you to pay fo rthe information, it is up to you whether you want to pay for convenience sakes or do the looking your self. Now this preoprty is a notice of foreclosure, this is not the sales price but perhaps what they owe. a notice has been posted giving the owner an amount of time to pay or sign an agreement stopping foreclosure. If they do not it is auctioned, If the bank takes the house back after the auction, it will be assigned to an asset manager who will assign it to an approved broker in that area. It will be cleaned, appraised and priced at market value for that area. The price you see could be what they owed, it is not going to be the sales price. I have posted a link on my site for a free 7 day trial so people can see what realty trac actually offers. In almost every case they only posts notices of foreclosures, they do not list homes but are a data collection company and bascially sell data. You should get a buyer broker in your area who can keep an eye when this house does hit the mls. Good luck with yoru search.
