Unfortunately, you canâ€™t. Especially if yours is a "Redemption State" because they have to give the owner opportunity to pay up all the way up to the auction time! Once a property has been foreclosed the bank will not have any contact with anyone but the attorney and Real Estate agent assigned to list it after the auction. The auctions will be "posted" publically though, so watch the newspaper for the auction date and try to buy it there! Also I would get an agent who has REO experience to work for you and try to get it as soon as itâ€™s listed. There is a way we can set up alerts, so that the minute it is listed on the market we are notified, then you agent can get your offer in front of the bank immediately!! I handle a lot of foreclosures here in NY and would be more than willing to connect you with a realtor in your area who does the same!
