Are you the owner of the property or a renter? I ask because owners are notified with multiple letters, phone calls, notifications from their mortgange company, attornies, etc. It is next to impossible for a homeowner to not know that their property is being auctioned. The homeowner knows they are not paying the mortgage - for homeowner's it is obvious. For renters, it may very well be a huge surprise. If you are the homeowner, I would strongly suggest you move before the sherrifs department comes to the house and throws all your property on to the curb.
