and you can knock on a thousand door and ask them if they are in Financial distress.
Or you can contact a Realtor and have him do the work for you.
Good luck and may God bless

You mention buying a pre-foreclosure - there can be confusion about the availability of properties in this status. My suggestion focus on listed properties, "pre-foreclosure" listed properties are called short sales. If they have been foreclosed upon then they are bank owned and will be listed as well. Chasing after properties that hit the pre-foreclosure lists is chasing something that isn't yet available to buy - and may or may not every be, because the condition could be cured.
There are 320 active listings that require lender approval right now in Somerset County. No need to chase something that isn't even available - focus on what is.
Good luck to you!
