the auctioned properties are sold in "as is" condition at the auction.
This means that the lender will not finance if certain appliances are missing, or there is obvious mold, or the roof is gone etc. Or, they will finance, by they will subtract the costs of repair (called costs of cure) from your purchase price, which would put you in the position to cover the balance between the new lower purchase price and the original price (and it could be a lot - depending on the property).
In the mean time, your escrow money is on the hook, and the lender is pretty much on seller's side,
in this instance.
There are many potential title issues, and you may not have a way out of the transaction.
Seller's title company is not going to be on your side either - and you might have to buy with
title insurance not covering everything (it's called "with exceptions to title").
You can also find your own lender, but if you can't close on time, find a hard money lender as a back up. In most cases, if you can't close on time, you'll be paying about $100/day for the delay.
So, please read your contract, consult an attorney, and make sure you have a back up strategy - in case your financing plan does not work out.
So - best of luch and beware!
Hope this helps,
