I am not a local agent . Just a suggestion , you can try going to auction. com . You may be able to search it there. A real estate agent can work with you on an auctioned home. They would be able to tell you 100% what to do and where to find it/ None the less i would search the site i stated above.

Chris, consult with a mortgage professional. I am a Veteran and have a VA loan myself - they are one of your best options if you do not have a sizeable down payment.
Conventional loans do not require a 20% down payment - with a 20% down payment you avoid paying monthly mortgage insurance. VA loans offer good rates, have no credit score requirements, have NO monthly mortgage insurance and the upfront funding fee (which is rolled into the loan) can be waived if you have at least a 10% VA disability.
VA loans make for certain allowances that other loan programs do not. I have gotten clients approved with a VA loan who could not get approved through other loan programs.
Seek out a local mortgage professional who offers VA loans. Check out the PA Mortgage Brokers Association.... more
You have the option to pay for a subscription service to receive forclosure listings in advance (foreclosures.net, etc.) if you'd like. However, these days the bank is more likely to hold onto their asset through the tax sale process and sell it themselves after foreclosure. This means that they are almost all listed through a broker, so you can find them by just searching the area and price range you would like as you normally would.
Also, a buyer's agent can keep you up to date on foreclosures so that you are the first to see them when they become available.
Good Luck!... more
