There is no magical list. Your REALTOR can show you all available properties that fit your search criteria including bank owned and short sale properties. FYI -- The term "pre-foreclosure" doesn't mean much. It just means the owners are behind on a few payments, but it doesn't necessarily mean it WILL become a foreclosure. Many owners can get current on their payments and stop the foreclosure proceedings.
For regular bank owned homes, they will be listed in the MLS with a local listing agent. Your buyer's agent will be able to access these in the MLS.... more
It's a lot easier to just use a title company, especially when it's a higher-end property that requires a major investment and you have money to spare.

You don't structure it in your offer. You do it by separate agreement with the agent. The offer/contract is between the buyer and the seller. You should never inject a 3rd party into your 2 party contract.

One important note, if you are financing your purchase make sure your lender allows this type of credit. You do not want to be surprised at the very end to find out that your lender will not allow it and hold up your closing.... more
Not directly, no! But some websites allow you to submit to the local MLS for a flat fee, and as Trulia scrapes MLS data, you may be able to get your home on trulia that way without consulting an agent.
Have you called your agent to report what you found? I would start there. You may also wish to call the broker of the agent who has your information posted in error to have that listing removed from the Internet (is it perhaps a previous listing of the home that was never removed from particular sites after closing?)
On Trulia you also have the option to report any suspected fraud listings to Trulia by going to the listing in question, click on the MORE tab, then the FLAG tab.
Hopefully these steps will resolve your issues.... more
