Hi Ben, forget about any information from RealtyTrac, completely useless and misleading in my opinion. All they do is try to lure buyers into subscribing to their notification service tied to public access records. The long and short of it is that any distressed property (Notice of Default, Trustee Sale, Foreclosure) will likely be offered on a Realtor Board sanctioned Multiple Listing service - period.

Best advice for searching on your own: use as they load ALL listings from ALL Assoc. of Realtors MLS systems automatically. Trulia is making strides to do this as well, but it will be some time before their feeds are comprehensive.

Best advice for searching if you are serious: Team with a Realtor and have them set up a set up an automated "search agent" for you so you get notifications automatically via email as soon as they are made on the MLS

Hi Ben,
This house is currently not on the market. Since this is a pre forclosure (short sale), you would have to negotiate the price with the bank. Have a good realtor help you with that. Once the price has been negotiated on you would still have to pay the escrow fees and closing costs.
You can visit my Beverly Hills blog at my website at to see what is going on in the houseing market in Beverl Hills.
Hope this helps.

Best of luck,
