Discuss with your REALTOR the process and the timing mechanism involved.
As Dan hinted at, you can attempt to leap frog the process, but the predictable response is "NO!"
Know what you are willing to pay, watch the process, be alter to any changes in the property, then get your offer accepted. Your REALTOR can guide you through the options available after your offer is accepted.
Best of success,
