Foreclosure auctions are generally held the first Tuesday of each month between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the county courthouse. The sale must begin at the time stated in the notice of sale, but no later than three hours after the time scheduled on the notice of sale.
In non-judicial foreclosures, the trustee or a substitute trustee will be the one to conduct the sale. These auctions can sometimes be referred to as a "trustee sale" or "substitute trustee" sale.
In judicial foreclosures, the auction may be conducted by a county official, often the county constable, or by an agent hired by the local taxing authority (for those involving property taxes).
