See if your buyer agent can find out who will be listing the property.

The agent put the lock box on the property so any servicing companies have access to the property prior to listing. The property might've needed a trash out, repairs or even a lock change.

If you know the listing Realtor (they usually post contact information on the house and sometimes on the box) call them and request that you be notified when the home is listed for sale. Unfortunately the time table for listing is in the hands of the banks asset manager and not the agent.

Different banks have different rules. For instance, Wells Fargo will often require the agent to market it for 7 days, and then they will take only owner occupant bids. Again, your best bet on being on top of a deal is to get an aggressive agent who will stay on top of it. She or he will be able to check the tax records and find out what bank owns it, then call and find out the details.

I'm trying to see if there is a way to snipe the REO deal before it gets listed so my offer goes to the head of the list..the house just got the lock box put on it this week. so i'm guessing the REO agent just started to secure the property.

Find your own buyer's agent and they can often find out who the listing agent will be. Of course the property may have already sold, but at least you will be ready the next time a desirable property comes along.
