Hi, I'm looking for a home but seems like there's not many homes, according to remax theres a foreclosure tab with a lot of homes there but I cant view pictures/detailes nor the home number other than the street, can my realtor show me those homes?

If the homes are currently listed on your local MLS, your agent will be able to show them to you. However there could be some listings on their site which may either be under contract or sold.

If you let your realtor know the Street. He should be able to locate it for you, and send you the listing.

If it doesn't have an MLS number or "full" address, chances are the property is no longer active and Re/Max knows it.  These are typically lead baiting sites for the agents in the office.  Think about this, if you are the seller wouldn't you want to capture your entire audience and let everyone possibly interested know about the selling points and specs about your home so you can quickly sell it?

Contact a Realtor to have them send you listings directly from the MLS. That way you will only get listings that are 'active' on the market.  Even Realtor.com doesn't always indicate if something is under contract.  If you want me to send you an accurate set of listings let me know.  I would be happy to help.

Total Bait/Switch.  These are listings probably provided by RealtyTrac that are pre-foreclosure, not actually foreclosed properties and not available for purchase.

They don't have any magic bullet for information that any other agent has.

Good luck.

If they are on the Remax site then they are in the MLS so any agent can show them to you

Thank you all for the responses. The homes do not have a MLS number, they only have a RealyTrac ID, the homes with MLS number he has shown to me, just feels like there isn't much inventory left :(.

May I ask one more question.  There's a foreclosure home we made an offer on (with FHA loan) and was put as a backup due to a previous offer, the home is still "active" so we now made another offer in Cash this time around. How long does it take for them to decide if the 1st offer from the other buyer will go through? Why would the home me active if there is an offer "in process" (not mine, wish it was though)?

Banks like cash.  They don't always take the highest offer, they want the deal with the least exits for the buyer assuming the offer is at or above the number they were hoping to receive for the sale of the property.  Banks typically will provide a response to an offer fairly quickly from the time it is submitted (1-10 business days).  As for the status of the offer being "Active" often the listing agent will not move the property as "Pending" until all inspections if any, have been completed.  Technically speaking properties should be marked as"Pending" as soon as they go under contract, however listing agents love to continue to market their property as an active listing is anticipation of capturing buyer leads.  I always mark my listings as pending as soon as I have an executed contract, but not everyone does the moral thing.

We pretty much offered at the price, 3k less but after us paying the closing cost, it will be right at the selling price, hope that's good enough for them. thanks again!

Those homes are postings of Lis Pendens, a possible future foreclosure.
The inventory is low right now and many buyers are competing with each other.
