What are Foreclosure Posting Lists?
In Texas, the public aspect of the foreclosure process begins when the trustees post properties for foreclosure at the county courthouse in which the property is located. This must be done at least 21 days before the auction. The auction is always on the first Tuesday of the month. 

What are R.E.O. (real estate owned) properties, also known as Bank Owned Properties or Sold Properties?
Rex Report also has lists of R.E.O. (real estate owned) properties, also known as Bank Owned Properties or Sold Properties. These are lists of properties that have been purchased by, among others, banks at the foreclosure auctions. This is quite simply the best listing of Sold Properties on the Internet. Rex subscribers find out about details of bank auction purchases before the banks officers even know! Since almost all Internet R.E.O. lists gather their lists from the banks, then they don't have the information either! Furthermore, not all lenders make their auction purchase information available to these lists. Rex Report has our researchers at the auction. Don't buy incomplete, dated, R.E.O. lists! 

Rex Report has Sold lists only for Bexar, Travis and Williamson Counties, the most populous counties in central Texas. 

What is the Sort Function?
The optional Sort Function enables the user to arrange the postings to your specific requirements. For example, you may want properties that were purchased longest ago to appear first in the listings. Select "Executed" as the desired sort and "Ascending" as the order, and the properties will be sorted with the oldest property purchased first in the list. 

What is the Filter Function?
Not every property posting can lead to a good deal. The Filter Function can either include the desired statistic or can discard an undesired statistic. You can weed out undesirable ZIP codes, (by using "<>", or, "not equal to"), or any statistic item on the list. In the above example for sorting the oldest properties, you can also select the oldest properties by specfiying "Executed", and "<" (less than), then enter a date (follow the mm/dd/yyyy format), and only the properties that were purchased before that date will be shown. 

You can also include specific statistics by using the "=", the ">=" sign, or any of the many choices available to you. If you'd like properties with the assessed values over a certain value, use the ">", or Greater Than function, and then any value you wish. 

This filtering process can be repeated and refined as many times as you wish.
