Florida Statutes §45 provides for the duties and requirements of the Clerk of the Circuit Court and County Comptroller for judicial sales (foreclosures). This web-hosted service, available to users with internet access who register through the site, removes geographical barriers and offers local properties to a wider audience. Placing foreclosure sales online at the Citrus County Foreclosure website, Real Auctionhas the potential of a greater benefit to the community: Broadening the pool of buyers, a world-wide audience no longer limited to just those bidders who can physically be present at the sale in the courtroom, could mean a possible increase in the number of interested bidders, and a higher selling price.
Online sales offer the opportunity to review relevant property information from the comfort of your home, office, or on the road. Bidding is auction style, and you may place your bid at a time that is convenient for you. Due to "proxy bidding" format, familiar to bidders on other auction sites, Online Foreclosure Sales allows a person to be in more than one place at a time and bids can be automated.
Users will be required to register and secure deposited funds before auctioning a property, or placing bids. Computers with access to the Online Foreclosure Sales website will be made available to the public during normal business hours and scheduled auction events at the Courthouse. Designated computers will be available on a first come, first served basis in Public Access.
Bidders and Plaintiffs may use the Real Auction website to register for online auctions. You only need to register one time. Once registered, your account will allow you to access any of the Realforecloseand Realtaxdeedwebsites.
The Auction Calendar displays pending sales. Once registered as a bidder the property research links are available.
Buyers beware! All properties are sold as is. Bidders are responsible for conducting their own research as to the property being sold, its location or condition, the condition of any structures or fixtures thereon, its marketability, potential uses, zoning, or whether any other potential liens or other defects in title that may exist. Neither the Clerk, nor Realauction, makes any representations or warranties to Bidders regarding the marketability of title to properties offered.
