Summit county sheriff sales are held every Friday at 10 am. The foreclosure dates are a matter of court record. That date has nothing to do with the auction date. The sheriff is currently scheduling sales through next February. You can go onto the sheriff's website to search by street or plaintiff name to find out when or if the property is scheduled for sale yet.
Note that there is very little chance that a member of the public can win one of these auctions. The banks send their attorneys who generally outbid anyone. Remember, they are just there to secure the property for resale by the bank. They are not bidding real money, although they must put the required amounts of money up and eventually pay all of the back taxes in order to take title. On very rare occasion, the bank attorney is instructed not to bid and, sometimes, a property doesn't sell at all. It is taking Summit county at least 8 months to record the deeds.

In our area especially, I have seen them simply fly to sale - some don't even stay listed 2 days. If you plan on buying one- have your pre-approval and funds ready and have a realtor before you even go to look.... more
The reason for price going up is most probably when the listing agent submitted an offer which is below market price(sometimes way below the market price offer) and after the bank BPO (Broker Price Opinion) came higher than the offered price, may be the bank asked for higher price so at that time that agent listed at bank's given price. You can always check with the listing agent for this changes, may be its of some other reasons.
There are lots of homes are available so keep checking and work with a realtor to help you to find a home. In California, most of the banks are not accepting 100% financing offers for the bank owned properties. I wish you all the best in finding you a home.... more
