Unless you know exactly who is responsible for this home, you'll simply be spinning your wheels in trying to locate someone with whom you can negotiate the purchase of the property. Once the property has been foreclosed, its often sent directly to a local listing agent to clean up, prepare and make ready for sale. When all of the paperwork has been complete and the home is ready for sale, it will appear on the MLS here in San Francisco. Your Buyer's agent should be able to assist you in purchasing this home.
Deutsche Bank is usually quite fast in turning home, so I'd expect to see this property listed within 30-60 days from the date of foreclosure.
Good luck! And if you need any further information about a specfic address, please contact us--we're all here in California and can help you.

Maybe you can try asking the title company to provide you with all the information of the legal owner, possibly a phone number may come up for Deutsche Bank., or go to county records yourselt and get as much information as possible about the address and phone number of legal owner. Good Luck
