The pre-foreclosure homes are listed by RealtyTrac.com, another real estate service provider.  RealtyTrac.com charges a fee for the use of its site.

The only pre-foreclosure you can purchase is a short sale or regular sale with the current holder of title. This can be a regular sale only if the owner of record has enough equity in the home to sale without short sale lender approval. Any pre-foreclosure is owned by an entity like: a person, LLC, Corporation, Trust or other. The bank is a lien holder only and any transfer of deed must come from a sale. All pre-foreclosure data providers are selling information about a potential foreclosure only. Anything can happen on the way to foreclosure that will stop or delay the foreclosure. It is possible to negotiate with a current owner and even their bank without the help of a Realtor, however; that is an uphill battle. You are much better off using a skilled negotiator trained in the pre-foreclosure purchase process.

First of all, I would NOT use a site like this to search for listings.  These sites don't always have the most up to date information, and companies like RealtyTrac are notorious for having "fake" listings.

You need to find a REALTOR to work for you as a Buyer's Agent. He/she will be able to set up a search in the local MLS and send you listings that fit your search criteria.  When you identify a few homes you'd like to see, your agent can take you to look at homes, and then help write an offer and complete the entire transaction process. Ask around to your friends, family or co-workers and see who they recommend. Or you can explore agents' profiles on this site, or other sites like Trulia Realtor.com. Good luck!

However, you can look at most of those homes on other sites, and virtually any realtor can help set up a search that will send you most of those houses. So I would look at the other options before I purchased the other site. Maybe a helpful PROFESSIONAL will give you a better list but here are some good ones.
