The house could be one of which is up for auction, in which you would have to have cashiers checks to pay, if you are the highest bidder.

If the REO is still listed, you would have needed to pre-quailify to determine your amount of affordability.

In most cases, the bank owning the REO will give you allowences off of the asking price for repairs. If you have ever seen foreclosed home pictures you would know the house is usually destroyed by the former owners. A/C units can be missing water heaters, and built in appliances gone.

If you check the local online tax or real estate records using the address of the property, you'll determine the current owner. If it's a bank call, and ask for the REO department. They will give you the status of the property.
If the property still shows an individuals name check that name online at the Register of Deeds website. The name will show the current lender .

I apologize we have false foreclosure information listed on our home details page. This data is provided to us from Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Please be advised that once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

For future reference, you can feel free to contact us about this type of inquiry through our contact form here:

I know they were working out some kind of a program like that. Some lenders may be offering it, you will have to ask them.

Yes, maybe, try the free legal aid, they are good at that kind of thing. The new owners are being aggressive about getting you out. If you have a valid lease they may need to let the lease run out, or at least give you a 30 day notice.
The old owner probably turned of the utilities if t hey were in his name. Hard to sue the new owners for not putting the utilities in their name.

I am guessing you are using the wrong terminology, are you asking if after they have file a foreclosure, can you then do a short sale?

Once the foreclosure is finalized you would no longer have the property to sell as a short sale. But if you are in foreclosure the lender will most definitely consider a short sale.

I hope that answers your question. I worked at a major bank with the "Loss Mitigation Department" for three years. I have a back ground in understanding foreclosure, short sales etc.

I am always willing to help people who are in that situation though I am not a lawyer. Anyone who reads this who needs help is welcome to call me. 714-968-2500

You have probably been scammed by someone who does not own the house. Call the police. This is a very common scam.

Assuming your property is in California.

Basically there are two periods, I am assuming you already have a Notice of Default (NOD). Many of those have a projected sale date on them, but it is not required by law.

After a 90 day period you will get a Notice of Sale, it will have 25 days from that time until it is sold. You may no longer wait until the day of the foreclosure to sell. The Notice of Sale will have the Sale Date on it.

Years ago, I used to work at BofA where my job was to interact with people that were in loss mitigation. As a way to to give back I help people like you who are in foreclosure with a FREE CONSULTATION.

I do not give legal or tax advice, I give practical advice. I can help you answer questions like:

1. What can you do about the foreclosure?
2. If it is possible to delay or stop the foreclosure, how would you do that, why would you want to do that and is it a good idea to do that?
3.What are your options, should you ask your bank for a forbearance, a loan modification, a short pay, a deed in lieu?
4. How do you avoid the tax consequences if you lose your house.
5. Being the guy at the bank, I saw the most effective ways that people in foreclosure and of financial distress used to negotiate with the bank

Basically I start by reviewing your situation to help you make some common sense decisions.

If you would like me to help, again it is free of charge, I have never gotten any business out of doing this though I potentially could. I really offer to do it to help.

Give me a call if you would like. 714-968-2500
