I tried to get to this site you listed, but the URL is bad. I tried a search engine and found “www.foreclosureworld.net”, is that it?
This site offers for $368.00 a list of REO’s in any county in the country, 24 hours a day (for midnight shoopers I guess).
It also allows “one free search” but the search only lists the number of homes in each county, and no specific info on the homes.(mine had 968, and that is WAY more than I’ve ever found at the county recorders office) Not even a town or street.
Frankly, I just cannot rationalize spending $368 to get a list I can obtain from the recorders office in my county, when I go there and research myself for 4 hours a week.
But, then again, if your time is limited, and you have the funds, go for it.
I’m not sure how current the list they offer would be, and the fact that they requested a credit card number over a non-secure server did not make me feel to good about them being legitimate.
So, IF you do this, please pass along to us here how it works out.
