Depending on the types of sales performed in your area (courthouse steps, auctions, sheriffs sale, etc.,) there may be a few ways to do it. If you buy a home this way without it being listed and being able to inspect it, you need to have the stomach for it. Consult someone if you are not experienced. You may find yourself buying ahome without a clear title, no plumbing and such if you aren't careful.

You can't. Banks will not talk directly to buyers at all, they only entertain offers after they have listed the property for sale with a licensed real estate professional. If you want to buy a foreclosed property, you are going to need to work with a real estate agent, period.
