Hi Mich,

In Mass, there are some cash auctions, but much of the foreclosures are being listed with real estate agents and posted in the MLS. In this case, there will be a lockbox on the door that your buyer agent can access, and you will be allowed to preview it. These properties will be vacant and you will find that most properties will not have electricity and the plumbing has been “winterized”. You will be allowed to conduct a home inspection, but prior to making your offer (in most cases), as the lender holding the deed “frowns upon” offers pending an inspection. If you wish to include the electrical & plumbing in your inspection, you will also bear the cost of turning them back on and off (most likely). Regarding the financing: as long as your fico scores and income/debt meet the lending guidelines, you should qualify for a mortgage. You may even qualify for a 100% financing, as some of my clients have and still are doing this. I hope this helps. The Realtor you choose to help you will be able to take you through the whole process.

Mich, if you're looking for a bank owned property, then definitely listen to the agents on this page that can show you lists of REOs and bank owned properties.

If you're looking for pre-foreclosures, however, where you can work out a deal before it's sold at auction or taken back by the bank, then you'll want to go a different route since the property is still owned by the homeowner and it's not yet on the market.

In that case, check out a site like which lists all properties starting the foreclosure process in Massachusetts BEFORE they end up at auction or back in the hands of the bank.
