I will say that any person had the same question and there is no answer.
From Investors selling the note at discount to other investors, banks just watting for the property to show on their list of available to no body knows.
Last foreclosure I follor, it took 4 months to go for sale. Another , one of my listings, it's been more than a year, and has not been for sale as of today.
So, just wait.
What county are you looking for those properties?
I might be wrong in assuming this, but you say you were pursuing buying one of these properties. Didn't you have an agent working for you? If not, why not? Buyers rarely realize that having an agent working on their behalf will, most likely, not cost you anything out of pocket. Agents are the professionals dealing with these types of transactions all the time. It's our job. I would never want to jump in to someone else's job and try to do it to the expected standards, especially if it impacted my well being in some way.
Good luck, U!
