Yep, you heard right! We are putting together another useful foreclosure tool for all members of the site. Best of all… it’s free.
We’ve heard the questions many times… How do I find out if property XYZ is in foreclosure or not? How do I find out which foreclosures in area ABC are in foreclosure?
We’ve always offered Foreclosure Alert, which is a seriously powerful foreclosure finder/research tool. If you need serious foreclosure research, that is the tool to use. However, we are releasing a light-weight tool to do simple foreclosure research, for free.
You will be able to ask this tool if a property is on the books as a foreclosure and it will tell you if it is or isn’t. You can also get the ten most recent foreclosures for an area, by zipcode, city, county or state.
What’s the catch? There is none! Well, almost none… to use the tool you need to be a registered member of the site (which is free – most of you are already, but if you are not, register now). The other small catch is the “recent foreclosure” part of the tool doesn’t list the actual the actual house number, just the street. That is the one piece of data we could not get for the free tool. The good news is we can map it on a map and you should be able to determine the house number by comparing the map to a Zillow map, or other maps that show house addresses.
Also on the roadmap is to add the functionality to our free real estate research system, TotalView Real Estate.
Again, make sure you have are registered member of the site AND logged in, otherwise you will get a “access denied” message:
Use the tool now!
