How does an interested party pursue purchasing a foreclosed property?

12021 Pine Ct. Leesburg, Fl. 34788 has completed the foreclosure process and I would like to contact  the note/lein holder to make an offer to purchase.  Can you assist me in this procedure or direct me to someone who can?

if you can ascertain who the lienholder is, such as through property shark or other public records, you may be able to find out through the lien holder who is handling it for them.  Usually the property must be sold at auction, but on occation they will make a deal prior to that

And note that something the "move out" to "on the market" dates could be lengthy. It sometimes takes a couple of years. You can contact a local REALTOR in your area and they can put it on a watch list for you.   However, it may not come into the market anytime soon!

This home should be listed for sale by a real estate pro. Once you see the sign on the yard contact an agent and have them walk you through the process.  I would like to caution you that buying a foreclosure in this market is riskier than normal due to all the mortgage fraud.  The vast majority of homes were foreclosed by the wrong lender and that could be issues for you later as you may be buying a clouded title.  You need to insist the lender who foreclosed can prove they legally own the home by producing a clear title.  You also need to ensure the local title company will issue title insurance on the property.  Many title companies are now refusing to issue insurance due to the mortgage fraud mess.
