Foreclosure sale frequently asked questions
When and where is the foreclosure sale held?
- The sale is held every Wednesday at 10 a.m.; however there is not a physical auction unless there are bidders. Bidders should register in the Public Trustee’s office (located in the Treasurer’s office) by 9:45 a.m., and must be registered by 10:00 am. The auction typically takes place on the 1st floor of the Courthouse, in the First Appearance Room.
What is needed to bid at the sale?
- Anyone wishing to bid should be registered by 9:45 a.m. the day of the sale. Certified Funds or wire transfer confirmation are due to us within one hour of being the successful bidder.
Can I register early for the sale?
- All registration needs to be done in the Public Trustee’s office the day of sale. We do not offer early registration.
Does the Public Trustee have information about other possible liens on the foreclosed property?
- No. Our office only has information concerning the lien being foreclosed.
What happens if no one shows up to the sale?
- All properties are struck off to the Lender placing the beginning bid.
How do I know what is going to sale?
- A “Pre-Sale List” is posted on the Public Trustee home page every week. This list is generally available by 5:00 p.m. Monday for the current week’s sale.
Can I see the property up for sale?
- No. Foreclosure sales are buyer beware and the Public Trustee does not know any information about a property – there is no express or implied warranty/guarantee.
