Trulia recently added the ability to search for foreclosures and it’s freakin awesome. They have teamed up with Realtytrac, the most comprehensive source of foreclosure data on the web, to become first major real estate search portal to enable such a capability. Visiting Realtytrac to acquire information used to require giving up your email address to spam and pop up windows but now foreclosure searches are about as user friendly as it gets with Trulia.
There’s no need to provide any personal information. You just initiate a search in the simple and easy to use format that Trulia is known for and check the box that says foreclosures. That’s it. You can narrow things down zip code, neighborhood, city, style of property, price range, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and square footage. On top of that, you also get a Google map view of the location for each property and photos. Searching for foreclosures have never been this easy. Trulia’s foreclosure search is hands down the easiest way to find foreclosures ever created.
Being a bit curious, I did a search for Dr. Phillips that netted 56 properties and Windermere netting 88. The whole process took just a few seconds. Freakin awesome.
