Hello, gowhiz -
Ask your agent to research the property's listing history - there may be some indication, i.e., it was (or is) a short sale at some point - depending on what they see, how they interpret it, who the listing agent was and how well they know each other - you'd be surprised at what might turn up.
Also, RealtyTrac will probably have it on Zillow and/or Trulia by tomorrow morning with a price and everything - just kidding...
Keep in mind however, that lis pendens is a long way from the bank selling it as a foreclosed property - just today I spoke with an agent who will "probably" be listing a property in which one of my clients has an interest in purchasing - the bank obtained the foreclosure judgement in February 2012.
BTW, February 2013 was less than two weeks ago - is that what you really meant?
