Trulia is not a member of your MLS. Some agreed to submit listings here but most don't. Your agent or their office must manually submit them here or through a site like Postlets that syndicate listings here and to Zillow and other sites.
This is something your agent must do for you, so let them know about your interest. If they don't know how, refer them to this question.

If they stop paying their mortgage, the lender will know this and take action. They may be negotiating a loan restructure with their lender.

I used to live right around the block from this house. Liberty Boro is a very safe community. What I don't like about this house is it's location. Liberty Way can be a very busy street so watch out if you have small kids. ... more

The Wesley St home is much older than the listed built date shows. I graduated high school in 1961 while living in this home, and it was very old back then. In fact the kitchen had the one piece porcelain sink with an under-drape, and very tall, plywood type cabinets. The furnace in this home when my family moved into it in the early 1950's was coal. My father converted to natural gas. The original structure is the taller section , block shapped , of this house, the rest is newer add ons. ... more

Hi Tracey,
I have been in Real Estate for 23 years and will be more than happy to help you get started in the Home Buying Process.
It is easier than you probably think.
I can help you get Pre Approved and that way you will know exactly how much Home you can afford. Then we will get all of your specifics and get you started on a Home Search.

Once you review the searches as they are automatically sent to you and you find some Homes that you feel you'd like to tour you can give me a call anytime and I will be happy to set up appointments so that you can view the inside and outside of each property.

Please feel free to contact me anytime. My Cell phone is 412-901-2100 and my email is

Thank you so much for the inquiry and I am hoping to hear from you int he near future.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Hi Antwan,
Do you have a specific property in mind? Typically the listing real estate agent should have answers to the questions regarding past utilities' costs. Are you working with a real estate agent currently? Your agent should be able to get those answers for you. If you do not have an agent in the McKeesport area, then I would be happy to help. I live in and invest in rental properties in the surrounding community.

For gas and electric, any past due bills follow the person that had those utilities in their name, these you will be able to turn on in your name.
For water and sewer, these are lienable against the property and stay with the property, you have to check with the water co. to see if you need to pay this off before you turn it back on. ... more

Select your buyers agent. A professional buyers agent will have An ABR designation approved by the National Assn of Realtors. This should be the min in selecting your agent. If you choose me I will provide information regarding each step in advance of your next move. I can recommend lenders that work and understand your area. We can set up searchs from the MLS database matching your wants and needs. Good luck on whomever you decide to work with.

Carol Moson answered:
The most likely scenario is the foreclosure listing is the most current one and the listing prior to becoming a foreclosure has not been removed from the system yet. Generally, once the bank takes over a property the price will be lowered so if there is no information regarding an agent to call, that would be the most likely assumption.
