Just to add to Benjamin's response:

Please be aware that you can only buy property at the auction for cash (you will need to bring cashier's checks in different denominations in order to do so).
Also, make sure that you have a qualified Title Officer run a title check and produce a property report that will show all encumbrances as you may end up buying a huge liability rather than an asset.

Last but not least – drive by the property of interest in advance and try to find out whether it is vacant – eviction can be a long and painful process, at least in CA.

Good luck!

Hello,

Without any further details all I can offer you is this... wherever the auction for the property you want to buy is being held.

They can be at the local courthouse, at an attorney's office, at the property, at a large multiple property auction event held by a real estate auction company, or even online!

The bottom line is that if you know the property is being auctioned, then you should also have details on where, when and how to bid. If you are looking for auction properties then I would recommend you start with these major sites which sponsor large regional events, usually with hundreds of properties, on a regular basis.
