You should hire an agent who deals with these types of properties. A foreclosure can take a long time.

Here's an article I picked up from Nolo.com regarding "How bankruptcy can help with foreclosure"

Depending on the type of bankruptcy --- Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 -- that the homeowner filed for, the homeowner may merely have DELAYED the eventual foreclosure.


Note that Chapter 7 CANNOT cancel the foreclosure.

Until that time, if you're looking to buy a foreclosure, better engage a realtor to get you a list of properties that are bank-owned and are actively listed for sale.

Good luck!

Hope this helps.
