Foreclosure Auction

The actual sale of the foreclosed property, usually on the courthouse steps in the county where the property is located. In judicial foreclosures, a “referee” is named by the court to hold the sale. The referee then turns the foreclosed property over to the new owner by Referee’s Deed.
