contact a local broker, The bank won't sell it to you directly.  They will say call they name on the sign out front.  You: But sir there isn't one.  Bank: Wait for it. Click.

Cory and Eric are right - find an agent who can investigate the property you want to purchase and can "speak the language".  I recommend you use a seasoned professional Realtor in your local area.

If the bank now owns the property you can contact a real estate agent or mortgage broker and they can look it up for you.  Some parts of Utah are not "searchable" via the internet.  This property will soon be assigned to a real estate agent and listed for sale and you can make an offer at that time.

if the bank truly owns the home now, it should be public record, like through your county tax assessors office, many counties have the records searchable online through their website.

However, usually the bank will hire a real estate agent to handle the sale of the property, that is who you will need to contact. (unless its a local bank with its own REO division) It can take a little while before the house becomes for sale, as many States have a redemption period, where the previous defaulted owner has the right to buy the home back after foreclosure (like 30 days or something)

Good luck...hope this helps!

P.S. NOT an attorney or anything like that!
