Feel free to read this article about foreclosure:

Is the house already foreclosed on? Is it worth more than what is owed on it? If so, why not sell it and avoid foreclosure? ... more

I have been on the foreclosed properties list for 1 year. My mortgage is current and only fell behind at one point because of games played by the mortgage servicer. When failing to dodge payments, keeping that money in "unapplied funds" while showing borrowers months late with their obligation. Believe it or not, unscrupulous loan servicers, (like Statebridge Company LLC) and there are many; can hire unscrupulous property management companies (like Safeguard properties) to get properties listed as foreclosed that are not. Properties they are aggressively trying to foreclose on for their greedy investors. And apparently they can do this without anything concrete. You know, like a letter of default on a borrower who is slipping off the ledge in spite of all available assistance. It can be a property owner who is quite solvent, possibly older, with high equity and a FICO score in a position that can be taken down quickly for a battle of endurance that statistically goes poorly for the property owner. So, some of those properties on the foreclosure list don't go to auction because wishful thinking and statistical probabilities don't always play out precisely the way really bad people want them to. Occasionally, not often enough, someone remains sure footed in spite of all available sabotage, grease and banana peels. Sad but true, and hopefully not the long term state of the loan servicing industry. Its scary how much rotten fruit slips through on the conveyor belt. ... more

1. Talk to a lender and get pre-approved for a loan
2. Pick an agent and tell them what kind of home you are looking for and they'll find it.

FYI bank owned homes aren't like they used to be. Now there are fewer on the market and the ones that are on the market aren't at the deep discounts they used to be. Now bank owned homes can and often are priced alongside non-bank owned homes. I usually tell me clients that specifically are looking for bank owned homes to focus on finding any available home that fits your needs in your price range. ... more

The big question is what type of mortgage loan does your Mom have? Typically, a real estate loan will include the land underneath. A "chattel" loan is for mobile homes and possibly manufactured homes that are on rented land. Real estate lenders don't work with chattel loans. ... more

Thank you for contacting us regarding the erroneous foreclosure status on this property page. 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 I have created a ticket request to remove the Foreclosure status of your property from their site. Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!
