As has been stated, the tax record may not be recorded showing if the bank or govt. agency has taken it over, they won't talk to you directly, so the agent has to communicate with them in the manner they requested in the listing.
Don't be afraid to go to that agent to keep you posted. If the first sale doesn't go through, that agent will e looking for the next interested party. Patience is the key in working with foreclosures.
Good luck Glormar. I hope you find what you want soon.
