Hi Farheen, potential foreclosures are difficult to track. With the economy the way it is many people miss a mortgage paymeny here or there. The properties you are referring to would have a Lis Pendens attached to them which usually means that the lender has started the default process. However, the majority will never be foreclosed due to various circumstances. If you are still interested in Lis Pendens homes a good place to start is PropertyShark.com, it's a subscrition service but it will give you the information you seek. If you google it you'll come up with other services also.
