Auction can be complicated, ServiceLink Auction, powered by Hudson & Marshall, makes auction easy. We’ve broken our events down into a few program types. See the descriptions below for a quick rundown on each one.

Trustee/Foreclosure

Public auctions typically held at the county courthouse. Properties are sold as-is, buyers may be responsible for any back taxes, liens or encumbrances. Interior access is not allowed. Buyers may have to pay in full via cash or cashier's check at the auction. Typically, there is no Buyer's Premium added to winning bid.

Newly Foreclosed

Properties are available sometimes just days after reverting back to the bank because they did not sell at Trustee/Foreclosure auction. Interior access and financing may be available if the property is vacant. Seller typically will pay liens on title, delinquent property taxes & HOA dues. Code violations may be the buyer's responsibility. Title Insurance is available at the buyer's expense. Typically, there is no Buyer's Premium added to winning bid.

Bank Owned (REO):

Properties have gone through the foreclosure process and are now owned by the bank. These are typically sold as-is, with no liens, back taxes or encumbrances, unless otherwise stated. Financing may be available. A Buyer's Premium of 5% or a minimum will apply in most cases. Typically, the Seller will pay for title insurance policy.
