The courthouse. The records will be there.

Probably for a small fee, a title or settlement company can get the answer for you. Or a Realtor should be able to help. (E-mail me the address and I'll see if I can come up with anything.)

Hope that helps.

If you have the address, you can search the public notices in the local newspapers to find the details of the foreclosure. If you're not sure how to go about that, send me the address and I'll try to find it for you.

I have to ask, however, why you would want to know the name of the bank? You won't be able to negotiate with them directly to buy the property. If you're interested in purchasing the property, you'll have to wait until it's listed for sale.

I have no doubt other real estate professionals will also jump in here to give you more information regarding foreclosures - you should listen to them. We've been dealing with foreclosures for over a year now and it's been a learning experience from which you can benefit.

Keep an eye out in the paper for Trustee sales. That will tell you the homes that are headed to the courthouse steps. Your question has a couple of parts to it that need more details though. If you are looking to buy a house before it goes to foreclosure most likely the property is listed as a short sale and you can't swoop in a buy it for pennies on the dollar from the owner. The bank still has to approve the sale and they aren't giving away the houses. You may find that the best bang for your buck is to keep an eye on properties that are listed as foreclosure and on the market for 30-45 days. At that point banks start lowering the prices to try and get them to move. I have a closing come up next week on a foreclosure that the buyers are getting for 420K that appraised at 460K. ... more

I have heard from other realtors that it can take well over a month. It has to go to a review and they are in no hurry. Be patient, they always get it done.
