It sounds like you want a foreclosure and not a short sale since a short sale is a pre-foreclosure status still owned by the seller.
I would contact either an MLS agent or lookup the mortgage online for the block/lot in Holmdel.
Once you know who the lender is doing that search, you can try to contact the asset manager directly IF the home is not currently listed by the lender. Government lender loans as well as commercial lenders provide REO websites (for free) that they will also list foreclosures on. For example, Fannie Mae has the homepath.com site for the entire country. If you other questions just let me know.
