When it comes to searching for bank owned real estate for sale, you need to search from a local website that offers "source data". You don't want to rely on those that are attempting to trick you with their latest 'made up' listing. You want the origination point for the foreclosure data to have some type of enforcement mechanism. For example, some of the real estate search platforms will show you listings that are not truly foreclosures and not really for sale. They may have been a foreclosure in the past - but since have been cancelled or sold.
On most of those internet foreclosure search systems, there is no one to hold those "advertisers" accountable for the mis-information they are spreading to the masses. This causes people to be misled and is totally unethical.
The best ways in how to search for Foreclosures come to us by way of two different sources. Both the "on market" foreclosure listings that are based in the Multiple Listing Service. They also come to us by way of the "off market" listings that are working their ways toward the foreclosure mark with the courts, with investors and with the banks that are trading them.
We have both of those resources posted at the following links:
- Search the current real estate owned inventory in Southern California
- Find the "off market" bank owned foreclosures before they become available
