I remember back in the day when everyone was critiquing (and by everyone I mean myself included) the sudden onslaught of online property evaluators. Everyone had their own opinion as to which ones were the most accurate and offered the best tools.
As the market has changed we are seeing a new wave of tools. This time these websites are listing property information on foreclosures. In keeping with the market I have searched through many of them and have found pros and cons to many.
The sites abound (Foreclosureradar.com, Hotpads.com, etc.) but perhaps the cheapest (as in free) one around is Foreclosurepoint.com. It offers fairly up to date, information. You can find all you’d need in your quest to take a gamble on the market, try and snag a good deal or just plain snoop on the neighbors. The only drawback with the free membership is that you won’t get a map with all the listings on it, just a list where you can click on the map of an individual property.
And while you’re at it you can check out these recent filings of foreclosures in Laguna Hills. As you can see the foreclosure is nondiscriminating, affecting all home types, styles and price ranges these days.
