The Foreclosure Sale

After the Foreclosure Hearing in which the Clerk of Superior Court approves the sale of the property being foreclosed, the Trustee will hold a Foreclosure Sale at the county courthouse in which the property is located.  At the Foreclosure Sale the Trustee invites offers to buy the property from those in attendance and then accepts the highest bid.  The highest bidder is bound by his offer the moment it is accepted. 

After the Foreclosure Sale, there is a 10 day upset bid period in which another bidder may submit an upset bid that is higher than the reported sale price.  An upset bid must be at least 5% and a minimum of $750.00 higher than the previously reported sale price.  When an upset bid is made, the upset bid period starts over again for an additional 10 days.  This process continues until 10 days elapse without an upset bid, at which point the last bid on the property is accepted and the foreclosure can be completed.

If you are a homeowner going through the foreclosure process, you have the right to stop the foreclosure and save your home up to and until the upset bid period expires by either paying the lender the money owed or working out an alternative to foreclosure with the lender.
