Not all homes for sale have the same showing instructions. Some listings state that no showings will be scheduled until after an offer has been accepted. You can have your Realtor place specific language in the offer as to you viewing the home after contract acceptance, yet before you pay for an inspection. This is so that the tenants do not have to suffer through possibly 20 showings in the first couple days on the market.
Making an offer under these circumstances is fairly normal and is no risk to you since you will get to view the property before paying anything upfront.

Unfortunately, that is true. Keep in mind that after the offer is accepted and you can do a walk thru, and any inspections, you can cancel he contract. You have 10 days from the acceptance of the offer.
The idea behind this is in real estate there is a covenant "Quiet Enjoyment". Which means that the tenants are not to be disturbed, during a sale of the property.
This is so people (investors) and agents do not bother the tenants with viewings, especially if they are not serious.
This is as in layman terms, just for you to get the idea.
