Illinois foreclosures are in the thousands. This situation is not so good for the previous owners, of course--but if you're looking to buy, it can be very good for you indeed. The city of Chicago, being the largest in the entire American Midwest, accounts for the sheer quantity of foreclosures in the state of Illinois.

However, if you're not interested in this major urban area, there are plenty of foreclosures--literally in the thousands--throughout the state. You can check for yourself on one of the handy foreclosure sites on the Web. These websites dedicate themselves to providing accurate listings of every foreclosure in the country, including Illinois foreclosures.

Getting the Details on Illinois Foreclosures

If you've never looked at one of these sites, here is what you can expect from the better ones: first, for user friendliness, a map of the United States on which you can click to see foreclosure listings for each state. Once you click on the state of Illinois, up pops a page containing a long list of Illinois foreclosures, conveniently organized by city or county.

From there, you can click on each individually listed property for a detailed summary, including photos, vital property information such as size, number of bedrooms and baths, property type, listed price, et cetera. You can also see seller information in order to directly contact the seller if you're interested in that property. Best of all, as foreclosure listings are updated every day, you needn't fear that you're wasting your time and energy on outdated information.
