Any local Realtor may set up a search for you that will be Foreclosure or Short Sale homes. They can also sort them by subdivision, zip code and price range. If you need more help please let me know I would be happy to do this for you.
Homes that are in short sale are already in foreclosure. Short sale is allowed by the lender for the owner to sale and pay the lender. Pre foreclosures are less complicated and is a lot quicker to buy then a short sale. Talk to an agent.
