Searching Commercial & Multi-Family Foreclosures
The majority of properties listed on RealtyTrac are single-family residences, but many commercial and multi-family foreclosures are also available if you know how and where to look.
You can search by property type using the advanced search, accessible from your My RealtyTrac page; however, it’s probably more convenient to just click on the "Modify Your Search” link at the top of any search results page after you already have selected the county, city or zip code you want to search.
In the Modify Your Search dropdown, select “Multi Family Home” to search for all sizes of multi-family properties or “Commercial” to search for all types of commercial properties. If you want to run an even more specific property type search, you can click on “Other” and then enter a specific property type code. To see a complete list of codes, click on the “Code” link.
For instance, if you want to search for just multi-family properties with five or more units, you can select “Other”, type RAPT in the text box and then click the SEARCH button.
In this case, there were a total of 44,262 matches in Miami-Dade County before narrowing down by property type, but only a total of 150 matches when the search was narrowed down to just multi-family properties with five or more units.
