Your local police department will have a list of properties & up coming auctions. Additionally, title companies produce several lists of foreclosure properties. Although their intention with these lists are to give them to Realtors. I would certainly agree with Abe, that you should obtain a Realtor if you are pursuing these properties. There is a lot of potential baggage that can come from purchasing some of these properties and a Realtor would certainly be aware of the questions to ask.
