Hi Araca21, First you need to know that a short sale is an action that takes place before an auction. Short sales can be difficult but they can give you an opportunity to negotiate a deal and exercise your due diligence. Auctions require having to come up with a bunch of cash up front. There's various venues for auctions: Online, court house steps on the property etc. We've done them all for many years. Feel free to contact us anytime.
