Default Real estate

Ok I have a questions about homes that are in foreclousers. About a month ago I was driving home, I saw a home with a For Sale Sign in the front yard. I called and asked if I could cut the lawn, the Real Estate agent said sure. I cut this lawn about every 2 weeks or so and charge $25 per cut. I don't edge or weed whip. Then I saw another home for sale, I called that agent; she said that the bank owns the home and, the bank has someone cut the lawn. I asked her how do I get on the banks list she said I have no idea. Ok how do I get a on a list for a bank of foreclosed homes? Also is this a good idea or do people get burned on doing this? Let me know what you guys think.
