Successfully Searching Foreclosures On Zillow

I receive calls daily from buyers who find foreclosed and pre-foreclosed properties on Zillow. They are immediately disappointed when I tell them the property is not for sale, it is not a foreclosure, or it's not a pre-foreclosure. I have received phone calls from sellers wanting to know why their home shows up as a pre-foreclosure on Zillow's website, (this is a whole different story!)

To successfully search Zillow's available foreclosures take these steps.

  1. From the Zillow home page type the area you want to search and click search. You can do this either by zip code, address, city, county and state.

  2. From the results page click Listing Type (you see will small red and blue dots)

  3. From the drop down menu uncheck "Potential Listings" and then under "For Sale" uncheck everything except Foreclosures.

This will successfully pull available foreclosure properties!
