Help the community by answering this question:


Assessed value has to do with how the county views the value of the property.
This value is used as a base (before specific person related adjustments like homestead etc.)
for taxes.

Final judgment amount is not final at an auction.
Whoever offers more, wins. Plus, 5% buyer's premium.
Banks do participate in auctions also.

Hope this helps,

The assessed value and judgement amount are not related. In a foreclosure sale, the judgement amount is that which was owed by the previous owner and foreclosed upon. Assessed value is what the county property appraiser uses to figure annual property taxes.

For the amount you bid t the auction, plus any charges or fees that the auctioning company charges, and of course all closing cost. Your agent should be able to explain in more details.
