Which sites are the best for short sales and foreclosures? I checked foreclosure.com, but it's 40 bucks a month. Not sure if there is value in that service. Are there any free services available?
I don’t think there are any completely free devices.
What service do you use Andrew? Any recommendations
You get what you pay for, sometimes. What are you looking for in a site? Personally, I think Biggerpockets is the best site for foreclosures and short sales, if you are looking for information on what they are and how to do them but, you weren't specific with your question. If you are looking for a "list", there is no such thing as a "list" of shortsales. If you are looking for a specific shortsale, um, find what listed for sale in yoru market, and see if they want to sell it for less than what's owed on it I guess. If you are looking for a "list" of foreclosures, probably gonna be pretty hit and miss. there is no list of "pre" foreclosures, and any list of active real foreclosures may be stale dated. You could look in the local paper. You could subscribe to a service that may or may not have relevant and timely (or accurate) information.
I agree with Ron. I have been looking at other possibilities like distressedpro.com but, I have been relying on going to foreclosures through word of mouth and visiting with banks.
