Are you looking for foreclosure property in Palo Alto?
Just to add what Marcy wrote, there were 16 SFR short sales closed since 08 so they would fall under pre-foreclosures.
I hope that helps,
At your service,
Since Jan 1, 2008 there have been 6 sales of foreclosed single family homes, and 8 condos/townhomes. These are the ones that have been on MLS.
