I wrote a blog about "Finding Foreclosed Homes on Trulia" just last week. I'll put a link in the web reference. That should answer all of your questions.

We have heard of some banks doing parallel short sale/foreclosures. This means that one department is working on the short sale and another department is working on the foreclosure, and which one is the fastest wins. Now, in regard to the short sale, the status of the listing may be contingent, meaning that the bank has accepted all of the purchase offers that it will consider. If you do not have a Buyer's Agent, you should retain one. A Buyer’s Agent will protect your interests and his/her commission is paid by the Seller. ... more

A foreclosure always trumps a short sale. A lender will not allow a short sale once the foreclosure has occurred unless the lender foreclosed in error. We had a short sale listing in our office where a second, that had been paid off several years ago, foreclosed because the payoff was never recorded. Needless to say the foreclosure was rescinded because you can't foreclose on a paid off note. That being said, I agree with Ginger. Someone "is asleep at the wheel." If a property is listed as a foreclosure by a different Realtor, then the Realtor handling the short sale either doesn't know the foreclosure happened or they haven't removed the listing from the MLS. Believe it or not, there are times when sellers are not aware that the foreclosure has taken place. If both listings show the same listing agent, then it is probably an error in the listing information. Maybe they meant to say "pre-foreclosure." If you are getting the listing information from a source other than your local MLS, it could very likely be an error in the listing details. The best way to find out whether it is a short sale or a foreclosure is to call the listing agent or agents and ask them. It is a listing agents responsibility to make sure the MLS information is correct and I am sure they would appreciate the "heads up." Unfortunately, if the error is on a site other than your official MLS site, it is difficult, and sometimes impossible, to get it corrected ... more

At this time I do not know of a lender/REO bank that is offering a situation such as the one that you are interested in. Once a home has gone back to the bank, most of the time there is "NO ZERO" down opportunities. The closest I have seen is HUD offering programs where you can purchase homes for $100, dollars down, I would recommend going to and doing some research.

Hello Kimbra,
I am an asset manager and get calls from homeowners all the time wondering what happened because they thought they were going to get a short sale. The reality is that the left hand does not talk to the right hand at the bank which is why the home was foreclosed on. Your options are as follows
1) Stay in the home and let them evict you - 90 days
2) negotiate a relo assistance package for a couple thousand dollars depending on your home value - 14-30 days
3) get an attorney and try and rescind the FC sale... not likely, but it has happened

for more info you can go to my website at

A short sale can become a foreclosue quickly if the mortgagor just gives up and does not try to do a workout or defend their position against the bank. However with hamp and hafa things can change. There has been a push to see if anyone in foreclosure can qualify under a modification before completing the foreclosure. The foreclosure process is quick in californa so if the borrower waives its defenses the process can be over in 100-120 days.

It also depends on the banks and how they are processing properties in foreclosure. Certain banks are taking longer than others.
