Yes, there is, via a Realtor! There's no need to spend a dime on foreclousre sites like RealtyTrac. Itâ€™s very common to be misled by these sites, which are not listing services. They post notices of foreclosure and default pulled from public records. Their postings are very misleading because the price shown is NOT representative of what the property will be when priced for sale.
If you are serious about finding a distressed property, work with a Realtor - you will be glad you did. Since the Seller pays the commission to the Buyer's Agent there really is no reason not to get professional guidance when purchasing a home, after all, the Seller has professional representation â€“ you should too! Realtors have the talent, experience, relationships, and time necessary to properly purchase a home.
