The link that you provided is to a posting by RealtyTrac that is really a come-on to get you to sign up for their subscription reporting service. RealtyTrac is not a real estate company. RealtyTrac does not sell houses. RealtyTrac is a reporting service. They take information from public records about foreclosures, notices of default, lis pendens and other such filings and report them to their subscribers. Information from RealtyTrac can have value for those who understand what they are getting and how to use the information but RealtyTrac postings on Trulia.com are abbreviated versions and are misunderstood by many who think the postings are showing properties that are for sale at very low prices.

I don’t think that you will get very far looking at RealtyTrac ads. For information on how to buy a house that really is for sale, check with a local Realtor who can explain the process and give you valuable assistance.

I would be happy to assist you.

Hello Tripti,

This house is not on the market at this time. It may be sold at an auction and if they don't get any buyers, then it will probably get listed where you will be able to purchase it through your agent. But this process can take a long time.

If you need help in finding homes that are currently on the market in Pleasanton, you can contact any agent specializing in Pleasanton and they can help you. I also live in Pleasanton so I would be happy to send you listings.

The property on Cranwood Ct is presently scheduled to go to auction later this month, and is not presently listed it for sale.

If you are interested in purchasing prior to the auction date, I can approach the owners and work with the lender with whom I am approved on their Priority Partnership program.

Please feel free to contact me.

Many homes are listed on the general real estate websites (like Trulia) as "foreclosure" because the owner missed some payments and then the bank records a notice of default on the property, which then gets picked up the real estate websites.

A majority of them never go into foreclosure - the owner pays up, or does a short sale, or hands the property to the bank in "cash for keys"... It can be a year or more between the notice of foreclosure or notice of default before it comes on the market, if ever.

So Steve is right. Anyone trying to buy a home in this market, (where many homes sell on the first day they become available, or within a week) needs to work with a Realtor who knows the area, can send you the listings as soon as they are on the multiple listing service, and get you the see the house quickly, and can tell you when offers are due and what it will take to get it if you are interested.

Hi tripti2204,

RealtyTrac, is a company who advertises "foreclosure listings" on Trulia. RealtyTrac's primary objective is to separate you from your $$$ in exchange for providing information most any Realtor® can provide you for FREE.

Please see:

Here's a quick diagram explaining the process of getting to the status of an actual foreclosure (the property above is on the very last step):
