Rob’s right, most investors use the local legal paper or foreclosure publication. So if you want to have heavy competition then do what everyone else is doing. If you want to have a 2-3 day jump on 95% of the other investors, then go to the courthouse.
Talk to the clerk there to find out how to look them up. They should be under NOS (Notice Of Sale), NOD (Notice Of Default), TS (Trustee’s Sale), or NTS (Notice of Trustee’s Sale). Depending on whether you are in a Deed of trust or mortgage state. Might also be under Lis Pendens.
At the least you can search for the previous days filings and search manually.
