Foreclosure Auction Services
Buying properties at auction can be profitable & risky. Don't bid alone.
Introduction to Hillsborough Auctions
Florida is considered a judicial state. This means that when a property goes into the foreclosure process the home is put through a process in which it will go through the court system. Once on the end of that journey, the County will put the property up for auction on an online platform called Hillsborough Auctions. Anyone can bid on these properties through this third party website.
More about Auctions
When you are bidding, they require a 5% deposit which must be made a head of time. If you bid on a property and walk away, you cannot get the 5% back. You cannot enter the property. It is entirely possible that the property you purchase could have additional liens, and or the title could have imperfections. These are major concerns that you want to investigate before bidding on a property. With the proper research and know how, it is possible to acquire deals at auction.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is it possible to lose money with an auction deal?
It is absolutely possible. Auctions are considered one of the riskiest methods of acquiring properties. You can generally never get inside of the property. You truly want to make sure that you know what you are bidding on when bidding on auctions.
Q. How many auctions generally come up for sale in a day?
Each county is different based on its population and foreclosure rate. Hillsborough county, has about 10-20 auctions a day, most of which tend to get cancelled by the County.
Q. Are second mortgages and HOA Liens also auctioned?
Yes! in Florida, an HOA is capable of foreclosing on a property before the holder of the first mortgage forecloses on the property. The HOA foreclosure is usually pretty obvious because it will be around $5,000 - $25,000 as opposed to a mortgage which is generally much more. Bidding on an HOA foreclosure and winning will not necessarily get you control of the property.
Q. Is AuctionTumbler used to bid on auctions?
Not exactly. All bidding is still done through the Realforeclose county website. Auctiontumbler acts as a tool to do the proper research in order to succeed at buying at auctions.
