Why can't Zillow show the address of the houses that are in pre-forclosure? A little frustrating.

Try checking your Property Appraiser's website.  Here in Santa Rosa County we can search by day or month to see all of the properties that have a Lis Pendens.

Those foreclosure listings come from foreclosure.com and are based on filings of legal notices. Many of those homes never even go to foreclosure so they do not post the addresses plus they want you to pay them for use of their site.

The best way to find distressed property is to have a local agent send you all short sales and REO's in your target area or you can look for them yourself in Oregon on RMLS for free.

I get contacted by consumers to view these listings, or to find out more information.  These are pre-foreclosures.



I really feel for the homeowners of these homes.  It's hard enough to go through the process, and then have it publicly displayed on such a format via online seems to far.  (My personal opinion) 

I understand it's public information.  I get that.  



However, these homes ARE NOT FOR SALE.
  


Dear Consumers:  This is public information, do NOT PAY for this information!!!


That's my 2 cents!

Melina is absolutely Correct!!!! Think about his - if you are a little behind and strangers start walking on your lawn, looking in your windows and knocking on your door - what would you do?  Many of these home are actually saved, in my area about 40% to 50% of the notices of default are cured (meaning the bank does not foreclose) I wish these homes did not show up on public sites but they do.

They may want you to subsrcibe to a service such as forclosure.com, where addresses are provided. I'm not positive if they are affiliated or not.

You know people are typically living in those homes.  What happens is that people start knocking on their doors and harassing them.  Just because they are in pre-foreclosure doesn't mean the house is for sale. Some people are able to work things out.

If you really want a list, the title companies will send one too you.
