If you are prepared to spend some time reading and looking around, most if not all of the information on foreclosure properties you'll need is available for free. If you must spend money on such information schemes, please be sure you are dealing with a reputable organization and not some fly-by-night operation. When you attend foreclosure seminars, take my advice and leave your credit card at home.

Finding foreclosure lists is not difficult if you're not short of time, but you can find yourself at the mercy of scammers. It is important that you distinguish between someone who can offer you information you need, and someone who has nothing tangible to offer and is just in it for the money. Make sure that if you buy access to foreclosure lists that they are up-to-date and try and find people who have used the foreclosure lists you're thinking of paying for before you part with your money!

Finding Foreclosure Lists Worth Money

If someone wants to charge you for their services to help you locate the perfect foreclosure property for you, that's OK. But be aware that if you are paying a one-time up-front fee, you are more likely to run into trouble than if you agree to pay a small weekly or monthly sum, simply because once you've paid a lump-sum, the sooner you disappear the better for the vendor. With installments for this service, you become a valuable asset to the business and can probably look forward to a better service.

If you take a few rudimentary precautions then, to protect yourself from the inevitable sharks, finding foreclosure lists that will give you the information you need can be a lot of fun. Whatever the reason you're looking for a foreclosure property, whether you're investing or merely in search of your dream home, you will enjoy your hunt knowing that you stand a good chance of making a bit of money from this deal. Foreclosure properties often sell for quite a bit below the market price.
