A property that is included in a public information database and identified is the subject of a legal proceeding, with a lis pendens filed. Because there is a legal proceeding, does not mean that the property is for sale. The amount that you see listed is the amount in identified in the legal proceeding. Many properties which have lis pendens filed will not be sold at this time. In many instances, the property owners will resolve the legal issue and retain the property. If it going to be offered for sale, the amount of the lis pendens does not reflect the price at which a property will be sold.
If a property has been foreclosed upon and ordered for sale by the sheriff at auction, the price listed is the opening price. It may be bid up from there.
