In most cases the banks assign the listings to real estate agents. Sometimes they are sold to investors in property portfolio packages. You can sign up for e-mail alerts for foreclosure properties at the top of the page.
When you see a property that meets your needs, contact a real estate professional to help you navigate the sales process. Good luck!
If you provide me with the property address, I can research the current status. As the other agent indicated, if the home does not sell at the foreclosure auction, then it becomes part of the bank's inventory and is typically relisted for sale as a bank-owned property (sometimes referred to as an REO). In addition to listings of bank-owned homes in the MLS, I network with a variety of wholesalers (who buy properties at the foreclosure sales on the courthouse steps). If you would like information on these properties, please let me know. Regards, Eric
