How did you find these properties?
Better hurry fast -- the market for this stuff appears to be at the initial stages of an explosion, according to some of the stuff you read in todays's blog here: Calculated Risk
I started looking with my daughter the last few weeks for her first home purchase; the number of foreclosure (REO) and short sales in the Northern Virginia suburbs has my head swirling.
I'd use a realtor for finding properties, for the most part. Also, if you look patiently at the newspaper public notices section, you can get the upcoming foreclosures; there are a lot of local auctions for Bank REO. Several banks have websites that list their REO stuff. Also, Government agencies, like HUD and VA, have properties they're trying to sell too.
