The best source of listings I've found for foreclosure properties is a
commercial service known as RealtyTrac at:

If you click on the "SEARCH" tab, and then enter a zip code in the
appropriate box, it will return a summary listing of foreclosures for
that zip code (for some reason, the zip code searches seem to work
better than city name searches, though you're certainly welcome to try

You can also enter a partial zip code for a broader search.  

For instance, a search on 91103 -- a zip code in Pasadena -- should
return about 20 foreclosure listings for that zip code, but a search
on 9110  (without a final digit) will return about 77 listings for ALL
of Pasadena.

A typical  summary listing looks like this:

9/28/2004  NOD  RMSC Property Details   Pasadena, CA  91103  $3,086 3 2 

NOD indicates a "Notice of Default", and RMSC is the code for
"Residential property (miscellaneous)".  The "3" means three bedrooms,
and "2" is two bathrooms.

Fuller descriptions of each property are available, but to get them,
you need to be a subscriber to the RealtyTrac service.

Happily, they offer a 7-day free trial, so you can certainly see all
the listings in your area, but for continued access you would need to
pay for a subscription.

NOTE:  For the free trial, you'll have to provide credit card
information AND you'll have to cancel your trial before 7-days,
otherwise you'll be billed for service.

A full property listing looks something like this (and it happens to
be from San Francisco rather than Pasadena, since this is what I
accessed during my own free trial):


This property is a Notice of Foreclosure Sale. A notice was filed at
the recorder's office by the lender's attorney signifying a public
auction. This 825 square foot property has 0 bedrooms and baths. The
minimum bid amount is $256846. This property will be auctioned at
