CONDITIONS OF THE SALE

All bids for a bank foreclosure begin at 2/3 of the appraised value of the property unless dictated otherwise by the Courts. If you purchase a property, you will need either a cashier’s check or personal check in the amount of the required deposit. Balance will be due according to the terms of the sale. All sales stipulate “Buyer Beware”. Meaning that the inside of the house may not have been examined by an appraiser because access was not made available, and the sale could be set aside because of significant damage inside the house. If you are the successful bidder, a Purchaser Information Form must be filled out prior to the purchase of the property. A deed will be prepared by the Plaintiff’s Attorney once a copy of your confirmation of sale is prepared. Deeds take approximately 4 to 12 weeks.

TERMS OF BANK SALE: If the appraised value of the property is less than or equal to $10,000 the deposit is $2,000. If the appraised value of the property is between $10,001- $200,000 the deposit is $5,000. If the appraised value is greater than $200,000 the deposit is $10,000.

A court order is required to withdraw a property from sale. Withdrawal orders received by our office prior to the week of any scheduled sale are noted on our website. Withdrawals received the week of the sale are NOT updated on the website. This list is updated every Wednesday.
