A foreclosure sale is conducted via a public sale that is open to all bidders. The Property is either sold to a third-party bidder at the event or reverts back to the beneficiary (Mortgagee, Bank or Lender) as a Real Estate Owned (REO) Foreclosure. Please contact the appropriate County or Foreclosure Sale Agent to request a copy of the bidding rules and review the sale process in detail.

The time and place of foreclosure sales are county specific. Please visit the appropriate County or Foreclosure Sale Agent website or contact the County or Foreclosure Sale Agent directly for specific information.

Online bidding is not available for a foreclosure sale in Pennsylvania.

Typically counties require funds to be paid in the form of cash, bank money order or certified check at the time of sale. Personal checks, company checks, letters of credit, or charge cards may not be accepted. Be sure to visit the appropriate County or Foreclosure Sale Agent website or contact the County or Foreclosure Sale Agent directly for specific information.

The sale of a Property may be cancelled or postponed for many reasons prior to the start of bidding at the sale. There is no guarantee that a particular Property will actually be brought to sale.
