What exactly is a Sheriff’s Sale?
A sheriff’s sale is a public auction of real property which takes place at the end of the foreclosure process. A foreclosure occurs when payments have not been made on a mortgaged property. As a result, the lender files suit in court to terminate the property owner’s rights of possession so that the lender may sell the property to recover its loss. If the lender prevails, the court then directs the sheriff to schedule the property for sale.
