Information on foreclosed homes not yet listed on the multiple listing service (MLS) is now available for free to the public. Of the 1.2 million homes now listed by Zillow nationwide:
about 1 million are in pre-foreclosure or listed for auction; and
260,000 are real estate owned (REO).
Zillow offers an estimate for each home’s sales price based on its fair market value (FMVThe price a reasonable, unpressured buyer would pay for property on the open market.) and the area’s average foreclosure discount. The service also lists the unpaid balance and the foreclosure timeline for each home. This information is usually only made available by large aggregators for a fee.
