How to Find Foreclosed Houses in My Area


Foreclosure indicates an unfortunate situation for those who have lost their homes. However, it can be a positive thing for those looking for a new home or for an investment property. Foreclosed homes can often be purchased for a fraction of the original sales price. These houses usually need cleaning and remodeling before they are in a livable condition, but the discounted sales price is often worth the effort. With a little time and effort, finding foreclosures in your area should not be difficult.

  • Visit the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development's website and type "Homes for sale" in the search box.

  • Click on the "From HUD" link under "Single Family Homes for Sale" on the HUD website. This will take you to a page with a listing of states.

  • Click on the state in which you live. Click on the "Go to requested page" link on the next page. This will bring up a search box to look for foreclosed properties in your area.

  • Fill out the search-box fields with as many details as desired. You can search by address, a particular price range, and bedroom and bathroom size. Click on the "Search" tab to produce a list of foreclosed homes.
