Bellevue-based ForeclosurePoint announced today that it’s going national with its online foreclosure-information service, a business now dominated by two firms in California and Florida.

But where RealtyTrac and Foreclosure.com both charge for their online services, ForeclosurePoint will make information free, said Prakash Kondepudi, its president and chief executive officer.

“Until today, investors, homebuyers and real estate professionals had to pay to see even basic information about potential foreclosure opportunities. But we’ve changed the rules,” he said.

ForeclosurePoint.com data covers 1.2 million foreclosed homes throughout the country and includes address, size, foreclosure filing date, estimated value and estimated open bid.
