More fun from the Zillow people! The Chicago Tribune: Zillow to show homes in foreclosure before they are listed:
The homes listed in 'pre-market' inventory will be properties where a foreclosure has been filed against the borrower but the action is not resolved. Among the details available for each property will be the address, the date and amount of the original mortgage, the unpaid balance and the dollar amount past due. It also will show the party that initiated the foreclosure action, an estimate of what the foreclosure sales price might be, based on the sales prices of nearby foreclosures, and details of where it is in the process. If the home was previously listed on Zillow as a for-sale home, that picture will be used. Otherwise, there will be a satellite view of the neighborhood.
The borrower's names will not be listed. [Emph. added]
If this doesn’t add extra zip to the banter at neighborhood holiday parties this season, I can’t imagine what would. . . .
