It's difficult for Realtors, or anyone for that matter, to know or predict when a home may go into the auction process. Many homes, especially homes in great neighborhoods such as this one in Virginia Highland, will never make it to the auction because it will be sold by the Bank, prior to the actual scheduled auction.
I'd suggest contacting an agent with knowledge of the specific neighborhood and asking that agent to assist you in performing some research to see which bank currently owns the home and IF that Bank would entertain a sale prior to the auction...many banks will.
Hope this helps!
