If you prefer to do some research yourself, you can always check with your county clerk to see what is being foreclosed. The website realtytrac is also a good resource.
It takes time and patience to secure an REO no matter where you are. Good luck in your search!
A good local real estate agent should provide you a list free of charge with no obligation.
In addition, there are paid services that publish pre foreclosure information, however, these services are deemed a scam by many.

Best of luck to you!
