Yes Michael is right on point with his answer. Here in Seminole County it seems to take awhile for the tax records to be updated on foreclosures. If your interested in finding out if a home has been foreclosed I would check the public records or contact an agent here in the area.

Michael has given you the right answer. If you are looking to purchase this home directly from the bank, it is highly unlikely you will be able to do this. Once a bank forecloses on a home they will most likely assign it to a real estate agent to sell it. So if you are interested in this home, keep your eye out for a for sale sign.

This is often found in public records with the county where the home is located. Sometimes this can also be found in the tax records of the county (depending on how up to date they are) as the lender will sometimes pay the property taxes even before foreclosure has been completed. But sometimes the bank of record is only servicing the loan for investors or a second lender. So it can be difficult to determine who is the actual owner of record.
