It depends. Typically you cannot buy and finance on the courthouse steps, but most of those are repurchased by the lender. Once that is done, you can buy them as a REO and obtain normal financing.

Feel free to call me and I can walk you through the process step by step.

Hi Nikki,
You buy foreclosures as-is, where-is. No builder warranties. Many of the foreclosed properties with foundation issues will be purchased by people who are familiar with or have experienced foundation repairs at some point in the past. They don't have the fear of it that others do. They know what it entails, what fees to expect, and know who they want to do the work. The factor that repair into the offer on the home. The bank isn't going to do any repairs to the property. They haven't even visited the property. It is up to the Buyer's agent to inform them of the condition in which they are finding the home as a point of discussion for why they are offering less-than-list.
