Most MLS listings should use phrases like as is, vacant, owner of record as tips that the bank owns the property and not an individual. Also look for wording on the paperwork requiremenrs and set amounts of earnest $$$ as signs of bank ownership

For sold comps, you should be able to put in REO in "type of sale". Not all Realtors put it in when they enter the data, but it will bring some up

In my area we have a Realtor Only box in the MLS and it usually says Bank Owned, if that is the case.  Also if the price seems too low for the area they are likely to be REOs.

In my area you can search by owner. "Corp" will turn up a lot. Cruising through the owner names you may find HUD, VA, bank name, etc.
