I am currently tracking a foreclosed property for a buyer I'm working with. By checking the court records and seeing that the bank was recently awarded a final judgement, I've told my buyer to antipate the property will be listed relatively soon.

Working with an agent who's willing to do the research is key if you are looking at foreclosed properties.

Usually,it is very difficult to get any information from a bank that is foreclosing on a property until they assign a person to work on the account. Once they do it is still normally a long way from being presented to the market for sale. I agree with the other agents here that you can can be put on a email alert and once it hits the market you will be notified. Ane one of us can provide that service for you.

Thank you.

You can contact a local agent (find one by clicking "Find a Pro" in the green Trulia bar above, then search by zip code desired) and ask them to set you up on "an Alert" by street, community, zip code, etc. The moment any new homes hit the market in the designated zones you and the agent will receive a notification into the computer. Then you contact each other and go see the place before anyone else. Best of all this should be a Free service from your agent. Was this answer helpful?

The home had two mortgages, one with HSBC and one with New Century Mortgage. The loans may have been sold. The home was listed as a short sale in 2009 and it expired. It could take several years for a home to go into foreclosure. There is no judgment date set yet. On Trulia it is just listed as a Public Record. It does not show foreclosure or Lis Pendens.

You can search for properties that are actually for sale, including bank foreclosures on my web site at: http://www.tammyhayes.remax-florida.com/. I would be happy to help you find a home. If you could send me your search criteria, I can set you up to receive listings automatically.
