In our experience with seeing REO's taken off the market temporarily, the listing agents have told us that they had so many offers that they had to temporarily withdraw it while they were submitting the offers to the bank. Once they get over list price, there is no sense getting higher bids as the property would likely not appraise. We have also seen problems with lock boxes and sometimes an agent will withdraw a property for a day or two until they can get that worked out. That does not mean that's the case here, these are things we have run into. Conditions such as flooding or other damage could be an extreme case as well. In some cases, they decide to paint or recarpet, pull it off the market and put it back on at a higher price.
