foreclosure listing sites

3 Replies

Has anyone used or had any experience using foreclosure sites to find deals, such as www.foreclosure.com?

Just curious to see how effective these sites are.  Thanks

No I have not, but most of those homes can be found through public sites (free) such as:

http://www.hudhomestore.com/

https://www.homepath.com/

http://www.realtor.com/

I have recently found a site that offers an investor/home buyer/seller basically the same level of access to the MLS as an Realtor except of course you have read only access. Working to get a free account now myself. The account has to come from a Realtor. The link is below.

http://www.listingbook.com/

For all of the moderators out there, I'm in no way shape or form affiliated with any of these sites.  I have no vested interest in providing these links other than to share with a fellow BP investor.

Thanks,

Jeff

Hey, thanks Jeff.  I also found your response interesting.  I had not heard of "listing book" even though I know of a lot of online sites, such as one that lists properties all over the country starting at $1.  It would be nice if we had a spot on BP where we could post auctions, both online and off line, including tax sales, etc. 

I'm wondering the same thing. I have checked Foreclosure.com and realtytrac.com. Both seem OK, but have read that realtytrac is often outdated. I don't want to drop $50 a month for outdated sites. Wish they had 30 day trials vs 7 days.
