the home always sells at the Sheriff`s Sale.
The bank has to provide the opening bid,
then it`s just a question of will someone over bid the bank.
In any case,
you have six months from the date of the sale,
twelve months if you are on three acres or more but only thirty days if you abandon the property.
Do you know what the home sold for?
Many lenders are sending home to sale for less than what it owed.
Feel free to email me at email@example.com
if you have more questions.
Good luck to you.
