Do you relaize these guys are hijacking your listings?

http://zillow.foreclosure.com

They are using your name in the sub-domain even and all the foreclosing listings are removed from your database and they require you to pay at their site for the listing.
If you do not have partial ownership in the company here, then you are going to have more people hijack listings like this later.

Just letting you know since I do not wish to pay for their services and their pages and simply want to see details on my area's comps.

Thanks.

I work with a lot of buyers who bank owned homes. All I have to do to help my customers is go into the MLS and do a search on bank owned properties in any given area, and I have them all. I can show 18-20 homes a day, plus I can provide a comparative market analysis that is ACCURATE. It is so much easier and so much safer to work with an experienced real estate agent than to go it on your own, and it does not cost the buyer a dime. The key is finding a real estate agent who has experience and is not just claiming they have experience! Why not get an expert for FREE!

Why not simply use a real estate agent to find out what foreclosures are in the area you are looking? Its just that simple

They are a click through listing site that has an arrangement with Zillow.  The problem is you click through to their listing, it asks you to sign up for a free 7 day trial by giving them your credit card, but gives the actual cost of the service once the "free trial" ends below where credit card info is entered and in the fine print, nor in my opinion adequately explain what the service is.  Judging from the complaints it may also be difficult to find how to cancel the trial subscription.

From the outside looking in it seems their goal is to collect credit card numbers from casual browsers that don't read what they are signing up for.  Here are some links to lists that are mostly complaints about this service:

Dustin, for every site that tries to sell foreclosure listings, there are 10 more that list them for free. I'm not 100% familiar with foreclosure.com, but it looks like they also have information available for pre-foreclosures, which is likely why they feel they can charge a fee since this information is pulled from judicial filings.
