Dianes was an excellent response. Foreclosures can take months, or there MAY be some wanting to purchase that can move quickly- though that is certainly not the norm.
Do you want to buy ? If you're interested, go talk to YOUR bank, or a LOCAL mortgage company to see what mortgage you qualify for. They'll want to know several things: How's your credit, how much money do you have, how much money do you make, how much money do you owe? = Can you buy?
If not, start looking right away. At least this is a good time of year, weather-wise to be making a move.
Hope that helps. Good luck
