Foreclosure Frustration - Information Please...

Trulia Voices

Trulia Voices question Foreclosure Frustration

"I have resorted to looking up property owners"  Barefoot said on Trulia Voices.  Barefoot a Home Buyer's question could just as likely be asked on Zillow, ActiveRain or other online real estate sites.   You as a consumer have lots of places online to get information about Foreclosures... but are they Foreclosures?  Are the properties on the list for sale now or ever?

Barefoot Home Buyer wrote "I found a property I would like to make an offer on"

Is the property for sale?

I seldom answer questions on Trulia, Zillow or ActiveRain. I am probably NOT cut out for answering questions on Trulia, Zillow etc.  I don't think I understood when I first read his question that RA meant real estate agents.   He does not want to use a real esate agent because they have not provided him the information he needs, so he is turning to Trulia Voices to provide him answers to his foreclosure frustration. 

The people who answer questions on Trulia Voices are real estate agents...

Barefoot identified himself in the questioning process as a buyer for 43081 (Westerville in Central Ohio) ... but he is trying to buy property in Sanduskey Ohio (Northwest Ohio.)  He is looking for a phone number for Chase at 880 Brooksedge Blvd. Westerville Ohio 43081.  Chase must be the owner of the property he is interested in and that's why he is asking the question in Westerville 43081.

Looking for a phone number?  Goog411 business 1-800-466-4411 It's kind of like the old fashioned information operator for this century or decade anyway.  "Information Please..."

If Barefoot was looking for Foreclosures in Westerville Ohio 43081 I could help.  I have information. Real estate agents have information about the properties that are for sale.

Maureen, I have stopped answering questions on zillow.  Only because there are too darn many of them.  I'd be sitting all day doing nothing but.

I hate that RealtyTrac posts all the properties with Lis Pendens on there.  It is so misleading and confusing to the consumer.  These properties may, or may not ever make it to the market.  And that's only after the auction takes place, which could be years after the lis penden.

It is misleading. 

I have answered a couple of local questions on Zillow, more on Trulia.  I don't think I have answered any questions on ActiveRain.

it is misleading, I have however earned the opportunity to work with a few referral sources through Trulia. I like Trulia voices, there are so many mis informed people that are NOT out there working in this force. They simply do not understand anything because all they hear is the SKEWED media's broadcast that the market is this or the market is that... it is terribly frustrating.


I wish you all great success in 2010!! Hang in there!!

I have a buyer who has been waiting to buy the house next door to him for over a year.  The previous owners allowed it to go into foreclosure, and we keep waiting for it to be listed with an REO agent, but so far, nothing.  There is another foreclosure in a popular subdivision that has be empty for three years, and no one can find out anything about it.  I know these are not the only two houses like this out there.
