How can I purchase a forclosed/REO/shortsale? I feel as if all these investors are the only ones with access to them....
Hook up with a good experienced realtor and they will guide you. Make good offers and a seller won't care who or what you are -- it's all about the money.

I'm interested in buying a home, but the backyard shares a brick wall with a neighbor and they are growing plants that grow onto my yard on it.

How do I find out if a neighborhood has kids in it aside from driving around? We are new parents and will want a fun neighborhood for our family.
Maybe ask the local schools where most kids live?

Can a mortgagee prevent a partition sale in NY if both owners are on the mortgage?
A partition sale or lawsuit is a pretty complicated matter. I think you should seek legal representation if you haven't done so already.
