Usually you can go on your county website and look up HUD homes for sale, which will give you a list of homes in your area that are for sale. You can also call your local banks and ask them if they have a list of pre-foreclosure or foreclosure properties for sale. But the best way to find them is to hire a realtor in your area who specializes in foreclosures and short sales, or who can email you only properties that are in a short sale or foreclosure position, since many of these properties are listed with realtors.

Banks list their homes with agents. You can work with a buyer's agent who can email you listings as they come up. If you want to look at preforeclosure lists, you can go to the courthouse. They are also advertised in the local newspaper in advance. Foreclosures are not always the best buys. Sometimes you can find good deals that are not foreclosures. You can also look up web sites of some of the banks.
You may want to consider HUD homes .They are now listed with agents. If you would like the name of a good agent experienced in foreclosures email me and let me know which areas you are considering.

Hi Yeti -

There are actual links to banks that offer this information. I found them.. they are free.

Most of the services out there have turned out to be bogus. Not that I ever have suscribed to any of them..
But I know people and clients who have and these companies have found out they are only after your mothly charge and post the same information that you can find on your own.. and they make it very difficult to stop the billing process.

I wrote a quick blog about one company that offers a 7 day "FREE TRIAL" check it out and the responses from the people who were taken by the great deal.

Feel free to email me for some links to these sites. I am not going to post them here.

Unfortunately Larry, after the initial listing, I'm asked to sign up for trial to see details.
