We know what to expect with Free information. Sure there are some addresses that you can research, but keep in mind... this is a business. The Free information will most likely not be the most current and could lead to quite a bit of disappointment when 'sleuthing' on your own. If you want the updated info, buck up for the subscription- even for a month. You will see the difference.
If you don't want to spend the money, I would suggest working with a Realtor who specializes in distressed properties. Keep in mind, not every Realtor or agent is really "plugged in" to the pulse of distressed homes. It is up to you to make calls and ask questions, even if it means not working with the first person you speak with. Personally, I meet everyone I work with face to face. Quite a bit of time can be saved by finding out if you are compatible. Building rapport, trust and offering value for service is vital... especially with a transaction such as a home purchase.
For foreclosures, the only free site I've found that actually gives the full street address and filing date is from a company based in Seattle, WA. Its called Foreclosurepoint.com They have free and premium memberships available. They don't cover all areas. See the map on their homepage. I signed up for their free membership, and I like it. One more free tool in the old toolbelt.
Best regards, Tom
Best of luck
Added to the answers here it should help get you some leads..

I would be glad to find you the right deal onnthe island. Don't forget that besides foreclosures there are also properties which are conventional listings ( not foreclosures and short sales) and have also very attractive
asking prices. Either way gave me a call or e-mail me at email@example.com and lets find that deal. Its an exciting time for buyers. I can also set you up with a private account with access to the MLS in Fort Myers Beach and SW FL in general. There is nothing like living on the island.
