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.

Depends on the type of financing the bidder has and the terms they allow. If its a cash buyer closing could be quick. You should be allowed at least 30 days. If it gets no bids they will probably just re auction it.

You will get a notice to vacate the property after the sale that will be posted on your door. You will know what date you need to be out of the house. Too bad you didn't negotiate for a short sale.

Did you try everything to stop it? Call them try to get them to push it off, request a modification we have done it many times for clients, the banks do not want a foreclosure. If you can not get anywhere the auction will most likely go to the bank. No matter who it goes to you have a small period of time to continue to work things out while title transfer takes place, usually a few weeks. If the bank does take title they usually do not ask you to leave right away it is better for them to let you stay so the building is not vacant, we have seen cases where clients stayed as much as 18 to 24 months. Good Luck and if you do lose your home we can help you get back on your feet. Bob
