I just did an MLS search for you and there are currently 14 homes available not pending in this zip code just this month of November "Standard Sale!", a number of homes are also available for the later months, October, September, etc.
Regarding your question, it appears your working with an Agent to assist you in locating and negotiating sales price, contracts, etc. for that perfect home? If this is the case your agent should be able to assist you with showings, although you do have to be somewhat flexible when these homes hit the market, as cash investors are on the rampage to create rental properties and inventory does go fast. I would think you are probably searching for a "Standard Sale" to avoid the lengthy wait of a short-sale or multiple offers on an REO property?
Even though there are 14 homes on the market for the month of November showing "Available" this doesn't mean they fit your particular criteria, i.e. Price, Size, #bdrms, #bath, lot size? as I'm not aware of what particular type of property your searching for, so your Agent may be limited within his/her search for you.
Hopefully you've been instructed to get Pre-Qualified on a loan (unless you're a cash buyer) so you can jump in when the home hits the market and submit an offer along with your pre-qualified loan letter The majority of offers will not be considered or even reviewed without a copy of your Lender Pre-Qualification Letter and Good Faith Deposit.
In all due respect to another answer you received, I would never offer 10% over the asking price, 5% maybe, without compiling a CMA for you (comparable market analysis). My suggestion would be that your Agent run a Comparable Market Analysis on the homes recently sold in the area, this will determine a fair market value, which your agent then can show you the facts and help and advise you on how much the home may or may not be appraised for (Appraisals are so important as they will be based on the actual condition, upgrades and features of the home) as the bank won't lend on a home for more than it's worth, so who's going to come up with the difference? You or the Seller.
If you offer more than the home is worth (say 10% of the asking price) be prepared that the appraisal may come in lower, if this is the case then your Agent would then renegotiate for you asking the sellers to reduce their asking price based on the actual appraisal and/or repairs needed. If the sellers won't drop the price, then it's your option to either come up with the difference or walk-away within your contingency period (appraisal contingency gives you a specified time within your contract to walk away from the deal). Say Seller wants 300k, home appraises at $290k, the lender will loan up to $290k, but who pays the additional $10k? Buyer or Seller? At this point it's wise to ask the Seller to decrease their asking price to meet the $10k difference. Remember everything is always negotiable in real estate.
If your not working with a Buyer's Agent, please feel comfortable to contact me anytime. I'm always here to help.
