Can a house be purchased when it is in pre-foreclosure? If so how does one proceed to purchase it?

Yes.  You could try a hand written letter to the distressed homeowner, expressing your desire to purchase it.

In some cases, houses in pre-foreclosure are on the market as short sales.  In other cases, the owners are not yet ready to put it on the market and may pull it back from the bring of foreclosure.   You can learn more at Zillow's foreclosure center.
