Properties on the foreclosure sites usuallly want you to commit to a fee to release the information. Some of these foreclosures will eventually go to auction. You may get information on auctions from banks or private auction companies. Some of these auctions will be on the County Court House steps. Other foreclosures will be put on the MLS. Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and HUD homes are available throught the MLS. Foreclosure homes are often held and not immediately put on the market through auction or the MLS.
Trulia's records are not as up to date as the MLS. Trulia is good at getting an idea for prices and the market. However, to save yourself time, the MLS has all of the up to the minute selling information.
