One book RealtyTrac offers investors is Finding Foreclosures: An Insider’s Guide to Cashing In on This Hidden Market, (Entrepreneur Press, 2007) by Danielle Babb and Bill Nazur.
Babb is a real estate investor and specialist on using technology in real estate. She is a California licensed real estate professional, a professor and has a Ph.D. in Organization and Management.

For years, foreclosure properties were difficult to find and even harder to purchase. The foreclosure market was controlled by a good-old-boy network of real estate professionals and building contractors. The great deals were snatched up by the “regulars” who know the hidden secrets of the foreclosure marketplace.
Not any more.
Now real estate experts Danielle Babb and Bill Nazur have leveled the playing field, shining a bright light on the foreclosure process. Armed with their significant knowledge of the foreclosure market and using revolutionary Internet tools like RealtyTrac, investors and homebuyers can now find everything they need in Finding Foreclosures. The book teaches investors and homebuyers how to:
- Find amazing deals in the pre-foreclosure stage
- Identify great properties using powerful but easy-to-use Internet tools
- Negotiate with sellers and win auctions with exclusive strategies
- Estimate market value and secure funding
The foreclosure crisis isn’t about to disappear soon, even with the help of Hope Now and other government programs like the Housing Bill signed by President George Bush designed to help borrowers in trouble. More than 1 million homes are currently in foreclosure, yet finding information on them is a difficult process for the average investor or homebuyer.
But buying foreclosures can get tricky — whether you’re making the purchase at auction, through a bank, or from an emotional and financially strapped home owner. In Finding Foreclosures, real estate investor Babb and mortgage broker Nazur take you through the complexities of buying foreclosed properties, from finding the best deals to avoiding common pitfalls.
There is plenty of foreclosure business to go around, so the opportunities are endless for investors and homebuyers who arm themselves with the appropriate knowledge. There is plenty of room for newcomers to get into the foreclosure market, though there is one caveat: get the appropriate training.

So get your edge on the competition by reading books like Finding Foreclosures.
