How do I know if that Zillow foreclosure listing is available?

Zillow does a wonderful dis-service to retail buyers by scraping foreclosure notices, and then posting them as apparent listings leading the typical buyer to think they might be able to get a great deal (let’s not talk about how that’s a mis-conception in itself). Anyway, at least they provide a good clue as to if a particular foreclosure is available for sale. Just look at the colored dot/icon…

Red = for sale

Blue = not for sale
