Pre approval is much more involved and will have to fill out a mortgage application. A pre qualification can be used to determine what your mortgage goal is between you and your lender. ... more

Bank owned properties are often donated to charity. I suggest you contact financial institutions like Chase, Bank of America, etc and find out more about their programs.
