….Select Real Estate -> Foreclosures
Google Maps search feature can show houses in foreclosure or default (missed at least one 1st mortgage payment).
* Go to maps.google.com.
* Click on the “More” box (located on the map itself in the top right of the Google map).
* A pull down menu will appear. Click on “Real Estate”.
* Now, in the selection box on the left, check “Foreclosure” to select it, and remove the check in “For sale” to unselect it (just click on the check box).
* Now, the map will show foreclosures. Search for any city or zip code in the search box, or zoom in on any area of interest….
