How do I use the website efficiently to pursue foreclosure property?

Once you subscribe with RealtyTrac, it's important that you log in to RealtyTrac before you begin your search for property. Go to the login page and enter in your username (usually your username is your entire E-mail address) and password. You will be taken to My RealtyTrac and you can search from there to receive detailed search results.

When you first search, we recommend that you DON'T enter any search criteria other than the state/county or city/zip code. Don't enter a price range, beds or baths range or recording date range. Sometimes our data sources don't find a price estimate or number of bedrooms and bathrooms when they aggregate the information from public records, so it's important to search broadly to ensure your see all the properties in the area you are searching. If you receive too many search results, you can always go back and narrow your search criteria.


Subscribers can view the Foreclosure History section on any pre-foreclosure, auction or bank-owned Property Details page to view a list of data records RealtyTrac has for that property. Other data records may have more details about the property that were not on the original Property Details page. Subscribers can use this tool to check if previous foreclosure notices have been filed and if more than one lender is foreclosing on the property.

Schedule Daily E-mail Alerts on My RealtyTrac or on RealtyTrac's Property Search page to receive daily e-mail alerts of new property posted that matches your search criteria. After you enter your search criteria on My RealtyTrac or on the Property Search page, type in a name under Search Options, check the box to the left of "Receive daily e-mail notifications of new listings that match this search" and click "Save This Search."

Click the Save link on any Property Details page to save properties of interest for quick reference. Subscribers can view these preferred properties anytime by clicking on the My RealtyTrac tab after logging in to the site.
