Mortgage Foreclosure Sales

Mortgage Foreclosure Sales


The Sheriff’s Office does not maintain listings of pending sales. The Sheriff’s Office only conducts the sale. All notices of pending sales are published in the legal section of any daily newspaper within Washington County. Any further information on pending sales will require you to contact the attorney for the mortgage company directly.

Being A Bidder at a Foreclosure Sale 

**You are Strongly Urged to Seek Legal Advice from a Qualified Attorney Before Attempting to Bid at a Foreclosure Sale. This is Not an Auction. In many cases, the Mortgagor(s) still have redemption rights in place for 6 months or more.**

  • The Sheriff's Office will conduct the sale;
  • Representative for the lender will place opening bid;
  • All others are then allowed to place bids. A successful bidder must have cash or cash equivalent (bank cashier’s check) made payable to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at the time of the sale. We will not 'Wait' for funds.
  • All outside bidders will be required to fill out a full information sheet including their Federal Tax ID # or Social Security # and complete a W9 form.
