Thank you for your response.  I think I will stick to properties in California for now.

Be careful.
I see some foreclosures selling $20,000- below comparable market pricing. That sounds good until you realize it needs $30,000- worth of work, and all the time and frustration that goes with a major remodel.

Hi, It is best to get your listings from a realtor. They would be up to date.


Good Luck!

Hello -

Thanks for your inquiry.  Many buyers have been led to believe that there are better deals to be had on short sales and foreclosues than on other properties.  This is seldom true and your trusted realtor can explain how it works, find the best deals for you and keep you out of some major pit falls that have been created around purchasing short sales in particular.  Your best bet is to create a relationship with a realtor who is also a CDPE - Certified Distressed Property Expert - that person will be up to date on the near-daily changes that are taking place in the regulations involved with short sales and foreclosures.

Get to know a local agent that is familiar with distressed properties and ask them to create a search that will email you Foreclosure and Short-Sales with your criteria.  In return, promise to use them with your purchase. 

The online sites do not have accurate or up to date information.
