Unfortunately, some listings on sites like this one are more designed to get you to buy their "service" than to help you buy the property.
You can search the registry of deeds for foreclosure information if you know how and have the time.
I would contact a local real estate professional to save time and money.
(Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro if you want help doing so.)
The listing professional for this listing was Realty Executives Metro South (508) 880-0900 Ext. 12 List Agent: John Hagberg.
However it went off the market in September 2011.
The current tax records indicate that Wells Fargo owns it and they bought it for $221,368 on 9/11/11.
You might try and get through to the Wells Fargo REO office and see who they plan to use for the sale.

you are correct in that this was on the market before. It was listed at 219K back in 4-11-11 and it went thru a range of price changes all the way down to 189,900 and then it the listing was cancelled. This was a short sale when it was listed but then the lender ended up taking it back in september 2012. The lender maybe in the process of getting BPOs and then selecting a real estate Broker to list the house.
I'd also suggest that you get your own buyer's agent to represent you, listing agents work for the seller, your agent does not cost you a dime and works for you and your best interest. Hope this helps firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, I did check the registry and found it was owned by Wells Fargo, but their web site does not list any price either. I don't know if I'm interested until I know the price. It was listed a year ago fo $189,000 and no one bought it, so I'm assuming the price will need to be much lower. If the listing agent posted a phone number anywhere I would call her.
