Withdrawal orders received by our office are updated as quickly as possible and are noted on our website. The withdrawals will also be read at the beginning of each auction. No employees of the Sheriff's Office or Its affiliates have access to the inside of said property. Buyer beware and sold as is. Bidding will start at 2/3rds of the appraised value (unless we are court order to change it) All deposits are due at the time of bid, the day of the auction. You will also need to provide exactly how you want the deed prepared. We will accept cash or cashier's check (payable to yourself) and will have you endorse it over if you are the winning bidder.
