What Happens at a Foreclosure Auction?

What Happens at a Foreclosure Auction?

Last week I went to a Lowell foreclosure auction at 72-74 West 3rd St, Lowell.  This property had been listed as a short sale, but didn’t get any offers in time to postpone the auction.

Since I work with buyers, it’s important for me to know how to advise my buyers when they are thinking of putting an offer in on a short sale, a foreclosed property, or at a foreclosure auction.  In the last 3 years I have attended approximately 10 foreclosure auctions and only one of them was bought by a person (instead of the bank buying back it’s property).

In my opinion buying a property at a foreclosure auction has the most risk possible for a buyer, especially now!  Why is that?  Read more…

  • Usually the buyer makes his/her bid without seeing the inside of the property.  (At the foreclosure auction the owner stills has possession of the property and the bank does not, so it legally doesn’t have the right to enter the property and therefore is unable to show potential buyers.)  Typical auction buyers would know ahead of time that the property’s auction is imminent and may go and knock on the door of the property to ask to see inside, but the condition might change between then and when the auction happens…
  • A buyer is only bidding on the property to purchase it from the bank who has initiated the foreclosure proceedings (usually the first mortgage holder).  Upon winning the auction, the buyer is then responsible for any and all the other liens that might be attached to the property, including any unpaid taxes, water bills, 2nd or 3rd mortgages or mechanic liens, etc.
  • The buyer now is responsible to any tenant in the building and any cost necessary to evict them if necessary
  • The buyer is allowed to have an inspection after winning the auction, but the bank is selling in the “as is” condition and the buyer will lose his/her deposit if they choose to walk away from the purchase
The foreclosure auction I attended lasted approximately 5 minutes.  It had been advertised in the paper previously by Harmon Law office, as is necessary, informing any and all debtors or buyers of the auction.  In attendance were the auctioneer, a representative from Harmon Law (for the Bank of New York Melon Trust), 2 registered bidders, a client of mine, and 3 other witnesses.  The auctioneer read information about the bank and the owners and also terms and conditions of the sale (warning to all potential buyers) and then the bank bought back the property for $224,900. Seven years and more ago bidders were more likely to purchase the properties because the owners had not been “upside down” (owing more money than the property was worth), but now 98% or more are bought back by the bank.
If you would like to know more information about the differences between a short sale and a bank owned property or tips on purchasing at a foreclosure auction, call or text Debbie Kruzel at 603-318-6953.
