How does the sale of a house that has been foreclosed on work.?

I have seen homes that have been foreclosed on that are really inexpensive. When I asked my real estate agent about them. She can’t find a listing. From what I’ve seen on the news. They hold public auctions on the steps of the assessors buliding. Then I was told that you have to place some kind of deposit to be a part of the auction it self. A fee that is non-refundable. I’m looking for a house to live in. Not an investment. I’m NOT interested in flipping. Please help need info.
