FYI -- not sure who you're referring to when you say "you own". This is a public website. It's not a real estate company. Trulia doesn't own anything. If you're interested in buying a home, your should contact a local REALTOR who can represent you as a Buyer's Agent. Your agent can access any and all foreclosures (actually called "Bank Owned" or REO) properties. The foreclosure and pre-foreclosure listings you see here aren't necessarily for sale, and may or may not be actually foreclosed on. IT's possible the process has been started, but the owner can always "cure" the deficiencies. This is why you really need an agent who can weed through the junk listings and find you actual homes available for sale. ... more

Foreclosures posted here by RealtyTrac are rarely actually for sale. RealtyTrac sells subscriptions to information that a Realtor can provide for free. In reality, unless you are an active investor with cash in hand, it's not very helpful.
If you want to buy a home, consider all the inventory. A great local agent can help you find Bank owned homes as well as short sales and conventional sales. There may be good or bad deals among any of these.
