I am a lawyer in CT and practice in this area of the law.  I do not think that you are able to do this without permission or being a real estate agent.  In other words, you could be charged with breaking and entering and face jail time.  I suggest that you not go in the house without a licensed real estate agent licensed in AZ, otherwise you are risking criminal charges which will be placed on your record.
