The short answer is, no you do not need a license to buye a foreclosure. If you have a particular property in mind you'll need to know where it is in the foreclosure process and if its listed for sale with a Realtor already.
If you are just searching for foreclosures, it may be somewhat more challenging to get the information and deal with the mortgage company directly. There are many foreclosed properties now listed for sale, and I'd be happy to email you a list of those. If you're interested, just send me an email with the area/price you are looking for and I'll send you what's available.
My office is offering a Free Home Buyer's Seminar next weekend. It's not specifically for foreclosures but you will be able to ask questions, and you will get lots of information on the Tax Credit and available mortgage programs.
If you are interested in that, call/text or email so I can get you registered for the seminar.

Unless we know what type of foreclosure that house is, we can't possibly start to suggest the proper next steps. And yes - it's too much trouble to list them all out. Sorry about that but foreclosures are a big subject.
Would you please provide some more info?
