The auctions really suck. Here is why. If its from that company with 4 letters in the name like R_ _ _ or something like that, buyer be whare. They advertised that the price last sold for example; 675,000 and then say opening bid is 185,000. But you never get it for that amount. Also they stage people in the audience who bid the price up until it gets to the point of what is owed on the home which maybe 625,000. So it is very diseiving. And in the thrill of the moment people over pay at a auction. I hope you didn't do that. Can a attorney save you, I doubt it, that just cost more money. Take this as a learning leason and stay away from auctions. Go to REO's which are bank owned properties or go to the court house steps after doing your research and buy homes from the bank on the court house steps. Buying foreclosed properties from the bank.
