    This sounds like a paid advertisement for the company, not an independent review of them! They charged my credit card for products I didnt aouthorize and, after making many attempts to reach their customer service, they argued with me when I asked for my money back. A poor customer service experience at least. Their data is no different than others. I have since switched to another foreclosure listing service and am very happy…RTrac has spent lots of $$ on their brand, but they dont’ really deliver. There are many better alternatives out there. You should review more foreclosure sites and see for your self.

    I’m with Parker on this.

    This company offers a 7 day “Free” Trial. I signed up late one night. The next morning I got a call asking if I’d like to try their “agent section”. I said “yes” not realizing or being told, that with this action, they felt authorized to void my 7 day trial and start billing me $49.95before I even got a chance to determine weather it was useful.

    The site is loaded with inaccurate, old or expired listings. As a broker, I was seeing properties listed on there site as active that I know for a fact have been sold for many many months!

    If you are considering using this so called “service” I’d suggest you Google them first and see that they are infamous for this type of thing and that the complaints on them are staggering.

    I have very little doubt the glowing review here was left by someone connected with that shameful company.

    My thanks to Parker and Larry. (The 2 comments before me)

    I am glad I came upon their comments about Realty-Trac. Since there was no other comments about them, I am satisfied that regardless of how their site looks, they are not worth doing business with them. Sure wish they had mentioned the other alternatives out there to save me a bit of time. But, I guess their saving me money, will have to be good enough. Thanks again, boys.

    My friend found her house on realtytrac and it wasn’t even in foreclosure. It makes me wonder how many listings are falsified.
