1. Search for the street by typing %Street% into the address.
2. Each foreclosure is assigned a 9-digit number. The last 4 digits are the year. The property you are looking for is probably on the first page or two.
3. Match the 'principal sum' with the amount shown as the price of the home.
4. The actual price being shown on foreclosure websites as the price is incorrect. They are simply showing the loan amount that was on the Notice of Default filed with the public trustee.
5. The opening bid is released two days before the auction, every once in a while, the lender bids low enough to create an opportunity for a buyer at the auction.
Having actually worked with buyers to purchase at the auctions, I can tell you that most agents know very little about foreclosures at that level. Some do get the lists sent to them. Call an agent that works at that level or attend an auction and you will meet all sorts of people that could help you.
