This site is a great resource of information regarding the online foreclosure process. It also provides training to assist with the online auction process. It is highly recommended all first-time users accessing the site complete the training and review the FAQ list well in advance of their first auction. You must register for the online training with Realauction.
Huron County Sheriff Office online foreclosure sales are Mondays at 10:00 AM.
To bid on a property you must first register with Realauction. A deposit placed online is also required in order to bid. The Realauction website details how deposits are to be made in order to bid on a property. The Sheriff Sales for real estate foreclosures require a deposit based on the amount of the appraisal. An appraisal of $10,000.00 or less will require a deposit of $2,000.00. An appraisal of more than $10,000.00 but less than or equal to $200,000.00 will require a deposit of $5,000.00. An appraisal of more than $200,000.00 will require a deposit of $10,000.00. The balance of the purchase price is due upon confirmation of the sale. If the purchaser fails to pay the balance of the purchase price the deposit will be forfeited to the Plaintiff for the costs associated with the advertisement and resale of the property and for interest charges. All money for balances due must be in the form of a Bank Certified Check or Money Order made payable to The Huron County Sheriff’s Office. (Personal, Company, Home Equity Loan Checks or Cash will not be accepted).
If the subject property is residential and the purchaser is the judgement creditor, then the purchaser does not need to make a sale deposit.
Tax Sales require a deposit based on the amount of the judgement as listed on each individual sale.
Public notice is hereby given that all such real property to be sold at public auction may be subject to liens that may not be extinguished by the sale. The purchaser shall be responsible for costs, allowances and taxes that the proceeds from the sale are insufficient to cover. Purchasers of any such real property are urged to contact the attorney listed in each case and to search the indexes kept by the County Recorder, Clerk and Treasurer to determine if any liens exist.
There may or may not have been an inside inspection of the property and the Sheriff is not liable for the condition of the property upon confirmation of sale. The Sheriff’s Office nor any affiliates have access to the inside of said property.
Be advised that properties sold with no minimum bid requirements can be redeemed by the Judgement Creditor and First Lienholder within 14 days of the sale by paying the full purchase price to the Clerk of Court.
Remote bids will no longer be accepted from plaintiffs.
