Once there's a successful buyer to the property, he will notify you. It is up to the new landlord to give you a 30 or 60 day notice to move out, honours with the existing lease terms or negotiate the new terms with you.

Are you asking about Trustee sales? They are typically held daily.

I am a broker in Contra Costa County and here are some of the statistics on the homes for sale in Martinez. There are currently 198 single family homes for sale in Martinez. The existing time on the market is 53 days. At the present inventory it would take approximately 12.6 months to clear out the existing homes if not more were listed.

A property priced and marketed home should sell within those 53 days. What kind of internet presence does your home have? Have there been any price reductions?

If you unhappy about your results, I would suggest interviewing three Realtors who are full time and see how they will market your home and their track record.
