How can I find a list of foreclosure homes without having to register to the site and pay fees?
I need a list for the state of Missouri.
Most foreclosures are just listed with the regular realtors. I wouldn't pay to see a listing. We noticed that some of the homes listed at the sites where you need to pay didn't even exist or they'd have an expensive home on the photo and when you checked the address it would be an old run down home.
Another way to find them is put foreclosures with your states name in a search engine. Our state has a site that has all foreclosure homes.
Some realtors specialize in foreclosures and short sales. Call some realty companies and ask.
I, personally, love yahoorealestate.com It's easy to see whatever is foreclosed upon. It would also be wise to check out the other super good deals, as people might be working to avoid foreclosure by listing cheaply. Put a low-ball figure on list from cheapest to highest price, or oldest listing first. Have a realtor find out the real listing date, as the dates shown are probably just when it was updated. For example, one place I bought showed that it had only been listed for 16 days, but really it had been "on the market" for nearly a year. My realtor straightened that out for me.
Also, look for auctions (Google it), and sign up to receive updates/newsletters for any real estate auction companies in your area. There are several online real estate auctions, but I've never been impressed with them. Maybe you'd have better luck.
And, in an area you might be interested in purchasing within? Drive around and look for signs and/or notices simply pasted on the door and windows of properties. Sometimes there won't be a sign in the yard, but there will definitely be something on the door to alert those people interested and/or for any questions on the property.
Finally, go to your local banks and ask for the person who deals with disposing of foreclosures. Local banks are great for this, and usually can't afford to play hard-ball with you if you make a viable offer.
Connect with an experienced real estate agent who has access to current and accurate information. Most buyers agents will receive their commission from the Seller so this is a free service.
I think http://REOtip.com is the best FREE foreclosure listings website.
There are others but mostly they have little fresh data and of poor quality.
Try this site it can be very helpful: http://dirtcheaphomes.homestead.com/index.html
