Your first step should be to contact a local REALTOR who can work for you as a Buyer's Agent. I'm assuming you're looking at a bogus listing from RealtyTrac? They post a lot of "foreclosure" or "pre-foreclosure" listings that aren't necessarily for sale. Keep in mind, this site is just a marketing site and pulls listings from different sources. The info here isn't always updated, nor accurate. It's not intended to replace the MLS (multiple listing service) that agents use to market properties.
Your best resource is going to be a good local Realtor with access to your local MLS.
Good luck to you!
