Finding Foreclosure and Short Sale Lists That Work
« on: August 04, 2017, 02:57:25 pm »
Have you guys found success with foreclosure lists?? I can't seem to find a solid list source to buy lists from. I have tried the usual list source.com, etc. but they don't seem to work.

How do you guys get these foreclosure lists? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Try your title company first.  They often provide "Notice Of Default" 'NOD farm packages' for free, depending on what the laws in your state allow them to distribute.  Or they can tell you how to obtain this information (will they, is the question).

If the title company is unable to provide this data, you can always hire an aggregator to supply you with pre-foreclosure data.  They comb through the county records for NOD's, or whatever you want them to, and provide you a current list.  This would probably be the most expensive route.

You can also go down to the county records office and search for the latest NOD filings yourself.  You should do this once anyway, so you're familiar with the process.  Cheapest, most time-consuming method, but...

The shelf life of these records can be short, depending on how fast the bank forecloses, and when a variety of other postponements can occur.   

You could also contact CoreLogic, and ask them how you can obtain NOD lists for your specific area.  They should be able to point you in a good direction, if not a service they provide.

You want NOD filings, in order to get to the sellers earlier.  Waiting for the NOTS (Notice Of Trustee Sale) filing, and you'll waiting behind a half dozen other investors who are already working the seller over for a deal.

Not all that difficult here. They are required by law to be published in the newspaer twice and posted in the courthouse.

Hi,
I think, hiring a professional real estate agent is the best way to find foreclosed and short sale properties because an agent aware about the local real estate market. You can also visit online real estate listing portals like Trulia, Zillow etc.
Thanks!!

I think Javipa gave the best answer.  I go to the courthouse once a week to fond my deals. There are never any investors searching records. I get the most recent leads before they go public. Time consuming yes but way worth it in the long run.

Javipa's advice is the best. Looking for a "Notice of Default" or "Notice of Bankruptcy" or "Notice of Trustee's Sale", all depending on your county's nomenclature, in your county clerk's online database is a great start to pull down the list.

Another resource that I use that I couple with ads in the mail is to look in your county appraisal district's list of delinquent tax sales. That data needs more scrubbing because of owners who have minor delinquent amounts have lower odds than those who have higher odds. You can call up the appraisal district's office to confirm whether it's online or they don't share it.

I scrub through data like this and tried to share on BiggerPockets, but of course, they were much too pretentious and booted me.

Here's an example

Best of luck.

I use a service called PropertyRadar in California, they aren't nationwide but they are in multiple states. They've been pretty accurate for me and I've checked them with recent postings at the county clerks office and they were posted within a couple days of the recording date.

Another great option is using a title company. Title companies want your business and can be great assets when it comes to researching properties. Some companies will give lists for you to prospect so that they can get your business in the future.

As mentioned previously, you should network with investors in your area so that you can see which way is best for you. They may recommend a title company that is good with investors that can service many of your needs.

Good Luck!

Unfortunately up here in Canada those lists aren't publicly available as the lenders aren't allowed to share them.

That's fine with me because everyone is in the same position... you just have to be a bit more creative in finding deals sometimes.

Most investors would rather deal with homeowners without agents involved.  There's always a mark up.  With that being said there are still good deals on the mls.

This is all great information. The harder you work for the list the better the list, because everyone does not have that list.
