If you are thinking of buying at foreclosure auction that is a different matter. You should go to the court house in Doylestown and find out which properties are up for sheriff's sale and remember that banks usually buy these and list with agents most of the time.
I am a mortgage consultant specializing in the FHA 203K mortgage. This is a program typically used when buying a foreclosure since these homes typically have some additonal work that needs to be done in order to get financing approved.
With the 203k you get a loan that covers the purchase price + the amount needed to fix the property up (even add to it).
It is more involved than a straight up purchase loan, but this is probably what you will need to be prepared to use when you are looking at Foreclosures.
Give me a call to discuss further details and let me know if you need a good Realtor who knows these types of properties.
