As David said, most sources are unreliable. I use a service called Foreclosure Radar which does a really good job of reporting notice of default, notice of sale, and auctions. If you have a particular property in mind just post the address here and I will give you updated information.
Also below is a link to the new California foreclosure timeline:

It is almost always a better option for the bank to shor sell the house rather than let the house foreclose.
