In our area there are only a handful of agents that regularly handle foreclosed homes, it really all they do.
The banks use these same agents over and over. These are called REO properties which stands for Real Estate Owned by a lender.
It is possible that the same agent or administrative assistant is doing the data input and for whatever reason does not know the count of beds and baths. The safe assumption would be to enter zero rather than advertise 4 beds when there's really only 2. Hope this makes sense.

In general, as you probably know, townhouses have roughly the same number of bedrooms as baths. Single family homes typically have more bedrooms than baths. And a 2,000 sq. ft. house can comfortably have 4 bedrooms. So...just guessing here...those were probably 4 bed/3 bath (or 4 bed/2.5 baths, which sometimes gets rounded up to 3) houses. Those with 4 baths, if they were single family, probably are 4 or 5 bedrooms.
So, go ahead and investigate them. As someone once said, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." You'll may find the entire purchasing process, especially with foreclosures, to be a long process.
Hope that helps.
