A pre-foreclosure property is typically not for sale, and it’s mostly a designation that means the current owner is behind on payments or taxes. In some cases, the owner will catch back up; in others, it proceeds to becoming a foreclosure and you will have the opportunity to buy at the courthouse steps. We’ve reached out to pre-foreclosures in the past to see if they’d consider selling, but they’re typically not interested.
