It's definitely possibble to look at foreclosed or bank owned properties in Livingston, and also to do an inspection before you submit an offer to the bank- that's a really smart thing to do. I just did a quick check and we have 6 foreclosures listed in Livingston, tonight Tuesday July 20th at 8:45pm. We have 2 under contract, and 6 foreclosures have closed since the first of the year.
Usually, banks will develop a relationship with a couple of agents in the area to handle these type of sales. I see that you asked this question back in Febrauary, so maybe you've found something by now, but if not I'd be glad to let you know what's on the market!
