LAST UPDATED: June 30th, 2024

Since 2005, RealtyStore.com has become the fastest growing foreclosure property data provider. Find over 2 million listings with pre-foreclosure, foreclosure, bank-owned, government (HUD), short sale, tax defaulted, rent to own, or even owner-finance listings on one site. Realty Store adds data quality to their listings, helping to narrow search results even more. Read through detailed information on discounted homes across the nation. This site does a lot of work to ensure that all information is listed clearly with each listing. Realty Store is a foreclosure web search engine. They have well over 1 million listings that cover properties in all 50 states. The website has good major coverage in cities like LA, San Francisco, New York, and other major metropolitan areas. It also provides in-depth listings for smaller cities and rural areas throughout the United States. The company has been in business since 2005 and the key corporate officers are Jerome Ang (Customer Service Manager) and Ryan Fell (President). The website lets you search by city. After entering your search city, you can then view properties via a list, table view, or a map feature. The site provides information about pricing, financial information on the home, building details, home type, and many different photos. When it comes to searching for a new property, you can't do a deep address-level search with Realty Store. This is a subscription-based service. You can try the website for thirty days with a $1 trial subscription. After your trial period expires, you are charged $49.60 per month to use the website. You can cancel the subscription at any time and billing will cease immediately (however, you are not refunded the remaining subscription if you cancel in the middle of the month). The homes listed on Realty Store are primarily foreclosures from the following categories:

  • Bank Foreclosures and Repossessions
  • Government Foreclosures and HUD Homes
  • Short Sales and Pre-Foreclosures
  • Rent-to-Own and For-Sale-By-Owner Listings

The website features many different levels of customer support. There is an email form on the website for new customers, an extensive live chat support feature, phone, and mailing address provided. Lastly, there are encrypted security and verify protocols for when you purchase a subscription to the website, granting peace of mind for your credit card billing.

The Good

  • Trial period
  • Search filtering
  • Listing information
One of the things that we liked about the website was the $1, 30-day subscription. While we felt that the monthly subscription price was extremely high, the 30-day trial period gives the home seeker the option of canceling the subscription without incurring the high price of the regular subscription. For $1, a home seeker and easily search for a home and possibly find one. We liked the fact that Realty Store focuses on home foreclosures. We compared the number of listings available (1 million) on Realty Store to the number of homes that were listed on Zillow. While Zillow has over 2,000,000 homes to search from, Zillow only lists about 577,000 foreclosures as of August 2016. Reality Store offers many more foreclosures for customers who are searching for a home starting from around $10,000 or higher. While the search functionality of Realty Store is somewhat limited, it is very easy to filter the search results. There are multiple sorting options available for customers who use the website. Homes can be organized into lists with the following options:
  • City
  • Photos
  • Price
  • Sq. Feet
  • Most Recent
  • Type of Sale
  • Property Type
  • Status
We really liked the photos that were provided with each listing. In order to see all of the photos, you must subscribe to the website. However, we saw as many as 40 pictures for some of the homes that were included in the foreclosure listings on the website. Some of these photos included multiple viewings of the exterior of the home and rooms inside the home. Even though Zillow provides the aerial view of a home, we really liked the in-depth view we got of a home with Realty Store. One of the things that really peaked our interest with Realty Store was the accuracy of the listings (for the most part). While we found twenty-year-old bank data on occasion with Zillow, Realty Store provides up to date information on a home that includes the following:
  • Detailed Pricing Information
  • Financial information on the Outstanding Loan and Default for a foreclosed home.
  • Building Structure Details
  • Multiple photos.
Ultimately, we felt that paying for a subscription with Realty Store got us much more information than with Zillow.

The Bad

  • No mobile app
  • High monthly subscription price
  • Customer support
There were some cons with going with Realty Store. One of the biggest concerns we had was with the lack of a mobile app. We found that Zillow and other similar websites had support for every type of smart device, including tablets. more customers could benefit from using Realty Store if the company developed a mobile app for searching its listings. We also were somewhat taken back by the high price of a monthly subscription. Even though the $1 30-day trial is a great deal, we felt that the $49.60 was too high for the consumer. We found that the high subscription price might be more appropriate for a real estate broker who was in the business of buying foreclosed homes and selling them at a higher value. For the general consumer, we feel that Realty Store costs way too much. There should be a free search functionality that lets the site user see more basic information about a home. Our customer support experience was also somewhat lacking. There is a live chat feature, but this does not pop up until you are a few levels deep into the website. As well, there was a lag time before we were connected with an online support representative. Realty Store mostly responds to customer issues via its email form on the website.

The Bottom Line

Even though Realty Store has some of the most comprehensive listings in the industry for foreclosed homes, we hesitate to recommend them for the prospective homeowner. Here is what concerned us about Realty Store:
  • The high monthly subscription price to a search site that lacked detailed search criteria (you can't search by property type, street address, etc).
  • There is not a lot of information about a home price that is influenced by major renovations, similar homes in the area, and other listings.
  • The site only lists foreclosures (primarily). We found a few rent-to-own properties, however.
We did like the following about Realty Store, which might make them a great search listings tool for someone looking to purchase a foreclosed home:
  • Homes starting at $10k.
  • More than 1,000,000 listings.
  • As many as 38 photos were provided on some listings, as well as detailed information about the financial status of the home and the building structure.

JAMES STEVE JOHNSON

RealtyStore.com is good for people with low income and wanting to purchase a home. I was not able to locate a home of interest during my one week trial. I am not willing to pay $49.95 a month for a possible home foreclosure. It could take a few months. However I do have one other consideration. WHEN I FIRST SIGNED ON FOR A WEEK'S TRIAL, THE COST WAS $1.00. I HAD TO CANCEL ALMOST IMMEDIATELY, BECAUSE SOMETHING WENT WRONG. I SIGNED UP AGAIN, AND THE CHARGE WAS $3,00, BUT I ACCEPTED THE CHARGE. MY CREDIT CARD WAS CHARGED FOR BOTH THE $1,00 WEEK AND THE $3,00 WEEK. I RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THAT THE $1.00 CHARGE BE CREDITED BACK TO MY ACCOUNT. THANK YOU. JAMES STEVEN JOHNSON

I signed up for the trial last night. Was told I wouldn’t be charge until after trial ends which is in 2 weeks. I check my bank account for something else and see I have a pending debit for $49.90 from realty store. If we as real estate agents have to show good morals and honesty, why can’t the company that’s advertising their service do the same. You have it in writing you wouldn’t charge even in the email as well. In the email you stated I wouldn’t be charged until June 14, 2024 and you charged me the day I signed up. Where’s the integrity in your statement?

For $1 trial period, it’s worth it even with limited info …I like that it gives the addresses to short sales, foreclosures etc. Perfect for those who don’t mind putting in the footwork. High subscription worth it if you get solid leads or even a purchase . Also got ebooks. I Wouldn’t trust Answering my personal information. However The site provides more than enough information for you to get in contact with the right people

This site is worth using if you are seriously considering moving of investing. You have more to look at than you do the local market venues. The savings alone in auction and foreclosure information makes it very much worth the time and price.

Realtors, stay away from this service! They offer a 14 day trial for realtors. I only got one bogus, waste of time lead. I was unable to cancel through my account and had to call into the office only to be put through a phone circus with agents who harass you to keep the worthless service.The first agent refused to cancel my account and made an excuse that another department had to call me back. Had to call my credit card company and flag the billing as fraud. Don't do it. Stay away!

This company has billed my credit card without my authorization. I signed up with foreclosure.com in June of 2020 and cancelled the service withing 3 days and received a confirmation email. Approximately 7 weeks later i got a credit charge from Realtystore.com. When i called them to remove the unauthorized charge they told me that i never cancelled my subscription and would not give a refund. I explained that i never subscribed to realtystor.com but rather only foreclosure.com and i have cancellation receipts for that service. Be aware that this site is getting billing information from 3rd parties and billing unsuspecting individuals illegally or deceptively.

Looking for foreclosed properties? RealtyStore is a good place to start. I haven't bought anything through them but I have found plenty of properties that I would have made moves on if the time was right. They have all of the bells and whistles you would expect but they draw from property information that other companies ignore.

Site posts fake contact information on listings, often the same number on multiple listings. I called to cancel my membership immediately after I realized the site is a scam. After being on hold for 27 minutes, I ended up explaining my problem to the representative and they canceled my membership, however my card was charged again this month. I called them just now and explained my situation again, the rep literally hung up on me without saying anything. Customer service is absolute garbage. Please stay away from this site and do your research elsewhere.

15 absolutely worthless leads! To cancel our program 2 weeks short of the end of the 30 days free trial period tells it all. The lead forms have spots for answers for "area the customer is interested in, the price range, the time frame, the property type, the best time to contacted, and additional comments". None of those entries was filled in so the call you make is in the blind. 8 of the leads did not call or email me back, 4 of the calls did not remember being asked to be contacted, and 3 hung up on me.

Do not signup for RealtyStore.com. I cancelled the same day I signed up as I read several bad reviews and that it is hard to cancel. Their cancel chat link doesn't work, cant get ahold of anyone. I sent them a message to customer service stating that I wanted to cancel the service. They never replied and their website chat doesn't show a date/time stamp so can't use as proof with credit card company. Been fighting with them for 3 months. Not only that but in the 3 months that I was paying I never once received any of their services!! Not a reputable company. Gay Guilott from Guilott Realty

You probably never used realty store, I think they are scammers. Most of the properties I found were not existing, its not one property lots of them. I complained about it, and thy said they will report the properties I mentioned, so that they take them off, which they did they removed them. But I told him, I am not working for you, you should be checking this stuff before putting on, it is misleading information, and I think its criminal what they are doing, basically they are charging money, for items that do not exist or expired years ago !!!

I did the 30 day trial about 3 hours ago and I will call and cancel right now. The information isn't accurate ie: price, bedrooms, and some even had pics of a house but when I googled the address it was just an empty lot! It even said how many bedrooms and square footage but empty lot. Plus, most were already sold... in 2015! And, the prices weren't even right. Don't recommend at all.

This company charges credit cards even after a cancellation was done. They offer "free time" to use the site. This however is the hook. When you call to cancel, there still charged credit cards. Please if you need a Realty Store on line do your homework. They have had received poor reviews and fraudulence complaints from customers, which you can read on line. Be wise and d not fall for the free time. I would not recommend this store to no one.

You can imagine how tech savvy or update this company is.( Plus the operator hang up on me without confirming whether my account has been cancelled or not. So I have to call again 😡).
