I specialize in foreclosures. The list that you are looking at while some of the information may be correct, much of listed is not as accurate as you may think. Many homes get pulled before Auction (up the hour of)...An Open Mortgage is mortgage that can be paid off prior to maturity without penalty. The Deed of Trust to Secure Assumption is a filing notice (either if one "spouse is divorcing the other and assuming the note, or it could be used by the bank and/ or the company hired in order to obtain the note because of foreclosure (deed in lieu of foreclosure comes in after the property actually is auctioned off). If you would like to run a search on filed docs from the official records search you can go to http://www.traviscountyclerk.org/eclerk/. Hope this helps and honestly without looking and researching the property I can only give limited knowledge. P.S. Just a heads up, we as Realtors can give you a list of anything on the Auction block for Free...So I always caution about paying for a service that charges you for the same list. Best of luck to you and today is Auction day!

I would guess that Open Mortgages are just that...mortgages not yet released / paid off. Additional mortgages would seem to indicate these are HELOC's or other secondary loans.
When two parties are shown as Grantees and then one of the same parties is also shown on a subsequent deed as a grantor, this is generally due to divorce where one spouse purchases the home from the other spouse as prescribed in the divorce decree. Sounds like one spouse owner financed the property to the other spouse which would be consistent with the DOT to Secure Assumption and the Owelty Partition...in the event the owning spouse ever sells the home, a portion of the proceeds are owed to the former spouse.
