Being unable to keep their home for financial reasons, they had to go through the foreclosure process, lose their home and find a different shelter. So the loss of financial, as well as emotional security, created a lot of negative energy in a foreclosure house.
You know that feng shui is all about the subtle flow of energy, or Chi, and the energy can take either high, vibrant, and healthy attributes (Sheng Chi) or a low, depressing, and attacking quality (Sha Chi and Si Chi.)
Places have memories, and that applies to both inside, as well as outside man-made structures. In the home, the energy can get easily trapped, so the walls (and especially the corners of the house) will carry long time memory of all events that happened there.
Now, is it really bad feng shui to buy a foreclosure house? Not necessarily.

As with every home purchase, you will certainly have to look at all the practical factors of buying a house. However, knowing that the house is a foreclosure house, there is one feng shui must: you have to do a serious job of space clearing the house. There is no way around it.
Space clearing the energy of the house, and not just once, will assure that all the negative energy residues are being dealt with and released, instead of infecting your life if you decide to live in a foreclosure house.
