Zillow Advice: Home Buying - What does a pre-market foreclosure listing mean? Is it for sale or not? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-does-a-pre-market-foreclosure-listing-mean-Is-it-for-sale-or-not/486908/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate I assume you mean "Pre-Foreclosure" ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-does-a-pre-market-foreclosure-listing-mean-Is-it-for-sale-or-not/486908/ I assume you mean "Pre-Foreclosure" listing. if that is the case the property is not for sale.&nbsp;<br/>If you fall more than 30 days behind on your mortgage the bank is required to file a notice to that effect and that notice is published as a "Pre-Foreclosure". The vast majority of those mortgages are brought up to date and never go to foreclosure.<br/>I really wish the companies that make a living out of publishing these lists would stop as it causes a great deal of confusion.

Why did the realtor not explain to &nbsp;you or at least make some inquiry.The fact that the house is vacant is not really relevant.

It just means that it is going through the foreclosure process. The currently owner has missed several payments and the lender is going through the foreclosure process to recoup their investment. The owner may have it for sale currently and very well may be seeking a short sale--or they may not be doing anything.
