Sheriff's SaleI am looking at a property that is scheduled for Sheriff's Sale next week. The county website states that the home is assessed at $127,880 and the amount owed to lender is $50,000 more than the assessed value. I called the Sheriff's office to inquire about opening bid amount (to see if I should even bother considering the property) and the officer stated that the opening bid was below $10,000! This sounds basically crazy to me. I am interested in purchasing the home to live in, not flip or resale. I would like to get a deal on a house but realistically understand that the house won't sell at the opening bid price I was given. Any insight on sheriff's sales or why this opening bid would be set so low would be greatly appreciated!
