Kathy Burgreen answered:
The listing with the address you posted was served a notice of default. It does not mean the property is for sale. Just because a home is foreclosed, does not mean it's for sale yet.

To receive emails about foreclosures, have a realtor email it to you. Trulia will not do it.

If you are not working with an agent consider the idea, or consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate; generally the offer should state the purchase price, downpayment amount, any inspection, approximate contract sign date and closing date, etc. ... more

Rather than waiting to be called, why not simply contact any local agent(s)/realty office(s), or ask people you may know for referrals. For available area properties check

I am a seller who's buyer is going through SONYMA. Everyone involved is at their wits end as we were supposed to close on 8/9 & it is now 8/27 & we are still waiting for their approval. I wouldn't have accepted the offer if I knew more about SONYMA....Be wary has it takes a lot longer to process than they claim.
Good Luck.

Check or consider working with an agent; check local print media for by owner rentals, always verify ownership before exchanging any money; or word of mouth, etc.

Mark, I know that most of the respondents are from NY, but please consider the remarks from Gina in North Carolina (she is not trying to get your business, and neither am I; we are only here to help). I have friends everyday that "think" saving a few percentage points in commission is worth their time and effort trying to sell their home. While on paper, it all looks great. But, in reality, top dollar is not what you will expect to get. In my opinion, a discount broker is not good at marketing themselves, or negotiating terms for a seller, thus they discount their services. On the contrary, a great broker, is going to fight tooth and nail for every penny. You can laugh all you want at my beliefs, but as an owner of a real estate company and VP of Operations of one of the top producing Keller Williams teams, I have seen it all too clear.

Of course, if you hire a crappy agent...guess what you are going to get. AGAIN, I have not fight in this, I live in North Carolina and do not seek your business, but I KNOW what a great agent can offer you...and what a FSBO or Discount broker will bring to the table.

Gail Gladstone answered:
Looking for a rental property can be much easier than you may think.

I would be happy to provide you with a FREE account on Listing Book so that you can easily control your own search with very little time invested.

LIsting Book connects to the Multiple Listing Service and will tell you, based on your search criteria, what is on the market; will notify you immediately when something new comes on the market and will also let you know if a property out of your $ zone has a price reduction into your search criteria.

Not only is it free, Listing Book does not obligate you to any one Realtor; work with whom you choose.
I will need very little information; first & last name, email address, price range. You can enter the rest of the information yourself when you log into your account.
