Beware! There are websites out there that promise to send you foreclosures and “pre-foreclosures” for a ‘small fee’. You will even get emails, once you pay, that show you homes, addresses, list prices, etc. Don’t be fooled by these!!! If a home is for sale it will be on MLS and you will be able to find that house for FREE.
These sites pull public records for homes that have gone into foreclosure however, there are laws that limit the kind of information they can get and how quickly they can get it. In my experience, they are sending out homes that were in fact in foreclosure, months if not years before! One particular site, which I will not name, even has in tiny print that the homes they have on their site “may not be available”. Boy that is the truth!
So, please, if you are looking for a home, do not pay any kind of a website to search for you. If you do not want to spend time looking, then find a trusted Realtor to search for you! That is exactly what we are here for.
