If you can obtain private financing, you can finance the trustee sale purchase. To bid you will be required to show proof of $10,000 cashier's check made out to the trustee. The high bidder will be required to immediately deposit the $10K with the auctioneer and pay the remainder to the trustee by 5pm the next business day.
