Typically agents who specialize in short sales and foreclosures will include it somewhere in their profile or website. There are also designations for short sale/REO specialists who have completed classes covering those types of transactions.

You can also search on Trulia. Go up to the top where it says "Find a Pro" and enter your location and keywords. For example, I just searched Miami Beach, FL and found Marc Middleton who lists Short Sales and REOs as his specialities. He has 15 recommendations, which is good.

Here is the link:

I don't know Marc, so I can't personally recommend him, but I just wanted to show you that there are ways to find agents who specialize in what you are looking for.

Good luck!

Why are you renting?
With a VA loan you could buy with nothing down.
Talk to your local VA office and get your Certificate of Eligibility.
Try the Navy Federal Credit Union.
You didn't have to be in the Navy.

And thanks for serving

Hard to be sure without a specific property example. Might be a reasonable guess. Although none of the auctions that I have seen so far have shown lists that low. Give me a call sometime, and we can discuss the details.

All the best,
