Attention renter: Your home is in foreclosure
Renters who hate surprises might be interested in a new service launched today by RealtyTrac, an online marketplace for foreclosure properties. For $24.95 a year, RealtyTrac Renter Alerts will send subscribers an e-mail when their residence goes into default or is headed toward foreclosure.
RealtyTrac's database of 1.8 million foreclosure and bank-owned properties can also be tapped to research properties before entering into a lease.
What do you think? Twenty-five bucks for some peace of mind?
