To answer this perfectly, I would need to know more. But I would say a qualified "yes, you'd have to allow access". That does not mean at times that are difficult or very inconvenient for you. Think of this: the person he is showing it to could become your next landlord. ... more

Michael Emery answered:
Until the property has been returned to the bank, you will have to pay rent to your landlord as they are the legal owners of the property.

Whether or not they're paying their mortgage is irrelevant. If you stop paying your rent, you are in breach of your lease and could be evicted for non payment of rent. And you do NOT want an eviction on your civil record.

If you have a lease with your landlord, make sure you keep a copy or request a copy if you don't currently have one. Once the bank takes possession, it's possible they might offer you 'cash for keys' to help you move. But if you have no proof that you had a lease, they might not offer you this incentive to move.

Your realtor can go into RPR and see if it's on there. Or, you can ask a local title company to run a check for you.

Your best bet is to get on an automated search directly from the local MLS through a local agent. This is a free service. If interested, let me know. I promise I won't hound you with sales calls/pitches :) I have additional search tools that are also free and very helpful. ... more

The listings found on Trulia are generated from agents listings. Yes, not only do we have access to the listings on Trulia, we have access to many more that are not on Trulia. For example, Trulia feeds from the MLS systems from around the country. However, I have found several instances where our listings did not show up on Trulia even though they had been entered in the MLS. Agents have to often manually enter their listings in Trulia. If an agent is not registered on Trulia or if they have not serviced their site in a while, you could be missing out on many other available homes.
The best thing to do is to contact and agent in the area that you are interested in buying. Once you pick and agent keep in mind that they have the same access as any other agent in that area. Agents share their lsitings through their MLS, so there is no reason to call 2 or 3 agents for the same area. Also keep in mind that many of the banks have their homes on their websites. For example, Fannie Mae has and Freddie Mac has You can search for their "coming soon" and actual listings right from their sites.
You should never have to spend money to find a foreclosure on the internet.

You have a couple of choices. The clerks office records them daily as they come in - you can go there, you can have the title company email you a list each friday as they do for us...OR you can have your agent get them each friday and forward them on to you! I hope that helps.... ... more
