Depending on the type of asset, properties can come up for auction in a number of ways. They may be sent to auction by the bank, by a real estate agent, or even by an investor. A home may go to auction due to foreclosure, tax liens, hardship resulting in a short sale, or simply because an investor wants to sell via auction.
Sellers make properties available on Xome.com to be included in upcoming online auction events, or the auction is scheduled to be presented in an upcoming live in-person auction (i.e., a foreclosure auction).
Once auctions are scheduled (both online and in-person), the auction event information will appear on the Xome.com Auction Calendar, the search results page, and the Property Details page. Please note that event start and end days and event time are subject to change. Find out more by learning how to register for an auction event.
