I’ve discovered that the online public records search allows you to search by owner of a property. So I searched for the word “Bank” and low and behold I was able to get a listing of REO properties for a town. Do you think this is reliable way of searching for REOs?
I’ve also found the online resource for Public Notices for my area. Is the recommended way of searching there to just check every day for things such as Lis Pendens, Auctions, and Foreclosures? It would be great if you could get an email sent to you when one of these is filed.
