Hi Tricia-
Auctions are considereda matter of public record. Therefore, once a home goes inot the foreclsoure process, it has to be marketed for at least 3 weeks prioer to sale. Generally depedning onteh type of auction you are talking about, you can find the information at the local court house, in the local newspaper or online.

Hope that helps!

HI Tricia: There are many sites you can go to to find out about auctions. You can go to my web page to search foreclosures, Send me an mail and I can help answer your questions on bidding. Did you know that there is often a 5% premium added to auction properties, paid by the buyer required at the time of purchase. There are alot of foreclosures that are for sale that do not require bidding.

If you wish you can go to my website and click on "Search for Foreclosed Properties". If the property is currently in the foreclosure process, you should be able to find out when the auction will be. The information is through Realty Trac. If you have any further questions, please let me know. Sometimes the properties are listed for sale prior to going to auction and foreclosure. If so, I can help you with it or any other properties.

Thank you,

Tirica - if there is no sign on the property then my first step would be the county court house or check with the sheriff's office.
