A simple check of a property on public records for a specific property can yield the information that you may seek. I do use a couple of different ways to see the status of a property which is available to us as realtors. Additionally, if I want to see where a property is in the foreclosure process I look up on Dade County's website key in the owners name and I have access (public) to the court's docket. Depending on what you may have in mind with this particular property you may wish to use the assistance of a realtor to get you going in the right direction.
If you are considering purchasing a home at foreclosure sale/auction you will really want to do your homework as it does entail doing a lot of research so as to avoid a costly mistake. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to answer your questions.
