If you are asking how you go about doing it, here is a short answer. Connect with a REALTOR. Explain what the situation is. They will guide you through the specifics of your case. If the seller owes less than what you are going to pay, then it is just a matter of making the transaction happen between seller and purchaser. If the seller owes more than what you are willing to pay then your Realtor must negotiate the sale with the Mortgage Co. You can request do a "short sale". Or the Mortgage co. may be willing to let the seller give the deed back in lieu of foreclosure, and you will purchase from the bank. They are more willing to do this if they have someone willing to purchase.

Is this for an investment or your own personal residence?

You will have to pay to subscribe to one of the services that provide pre-foreclosure information, then do alot of door knocking & mailing as these people are already getting quite a few letters and calls from people wanting to do the same thing as you are trying to accomplish. The truth is that almost 70% of people who get a pre-foreclosure notices never get foreclosed upon, they end up working out the payments with the mortgage company.

Its not impossible but it can be challenging and depending on where they are in the foreclosure process, you'll need quick access to cash for closing. If the home needs work, a mortgage will be challenging and

Feel free to call or email me with more information about what you are trying to accomplish and I'll give you what info I can about the process.
