Hi - I list foreclosed homes and frequently get the homes within 24-48 hours of them selling at auction. Generally they are not sold to a private party, but are taken back by the bank. Any time the homes are still occupied at the point I receive them, the bank will provide me with a Relocation package to offer the prior owners...most of the time it will give you 2-3 weeks to get moved and offer you a monetary incentive to stick with the timelines as well as make sure you remove all personal items and any garbage inside and out and leave the home in broom clean condition. You aren't required to do any repairs or have the home professionally cleaned...but you will have to make sure to at least sweep it out after removing everything.
There are times when I don't even get these files until as much as 6 months after the auction date, and I've heard stories of people being in the home for over a year with no word from anyone.
I am sorry you are having to go through this - and hopefully you will be contacted soon by a Realtor with your relocation package and it at least helps you move on to a new start.
