How Do I Find Pre foreclosures in Houston

Does anyone know how to find preforeclosures here in Houston? I would really like to hook up with some hard money lenders in Houston too.

check the Lis Pendens file at the county courthouse or check local newspapers where sheriff’s sales are advertised?

Everyone always says the lis pendens. The answer is NO, NO, NO. There is two types of foreclosure. In texas you need the notice of sale located at the court house 28 days min. beofre the auction. Get they have awesome leads as well. I know this will work. I do texas as well as oklahoma!
