Just curious - Why do you want them?

Give me a "normal" listing anyday!

There are short sale listings and there are listing that will become short sales.  Solicit listings the old-fashioned way and know your clients.

There are several companies that you can Google and sign up for paid listing information.  I have found that some real estate agents have them designated on their website attached to the local MLS.  If you are looking to find potentials then get on the 1st notice email listing service of your local title and escrow companies, if they offer that service.  FSBOs are another source as probably 90 per cent of those are owners who are upside down and hoping to get their home sold but cannot afford real estate commissions and fees.  They are probably 30 to 60 days from first notice of foreclosure action.
