Trulia gets its info from multiple sources and not all of them give the address.

I think the information provided by RealtyTrac here is confusing to consumers. Many of the realtytrac homes are not for sale yet, and there is a chance they may never be.

My first suggestion would be to contact a local Realtor to find out what is available. There is no shortage of homes available in Southfield right now.

I was looking at some of your previous questions. Realtytrac provides pre-foreclosure information to Trulia. There are no addresses for these homes. I'm not certain if they are available if you get an account.

Most of these homes have not completed the redemption period prior to being offered for sale by the bank through a real estate agent.

I would agree with Michelle with the addition that each broker (real estate company) may also choose to submit their FTP feed directly to Trulia.

You would be able to check by locating the MLS number (usually begins with "28" for 2008) and going to the website below for the address.

The local MLS has to subscribe or the agent has to down load.................some don't....................so that is why Trulia is a good frame of reference but may not have complete info. Your local MLS will have everything from your area.................other then FSBO's. If you want to see solds you can go to your local tax site and look up homes one by one, but this is very time consuming.

A good agent should be able to provide you a list. Our MLS system makes the search very easy...
