WSJ Expert June Fletcher on Foreclosures
"Bargains abound, particularly in foreclosure properties. While many Web sites sell foreclosure information...you don't have to pay an online membership fee to find them. Title companies, real-estate agents and lenders -- including credit unions -- all have information on homes in various stages of foreclosure" and
you can also find listings in local newspapers and Web sites.
BIG BUT: "you will get a better deal if you buy a house before it goes to auction, or after -- if it doesn't sell on the courthouse steps. Bidders at an auction sometimes get caught in the heat of the moment and push up prices."
