FYI..."pre-foreclosure" simply means that the owner has missed a payment....sometimes several. The responses below are correct.....but if you subscribing to a service that feeds you this information, this may come in handy. Good luck!

Like the others have said the bank may be working with the owners on a loan modification, short sale, or with other lenders on the property. This is not unusual right now as most banks are under pressure to do everything possible to save peoples homes, and many notice of defaults are filed, but trustee sales are often delayed.

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:

Realy at that point, only the bank can extend the auction date.

the current owner probably is more than liklety working with with the lender. Banks love to watch you squirm and frequently postpose the sale 30 days at a time.

I would not trust property information on trullia or zillow. Ussually the information is out dated or just plain false.

It usually means that the bank has been considering offers and may have even accepted a short sale offer and they are trying to give the buyer's time to see if they can close escrow soon.

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