Our auction data set is compiled from the same official records sources. Trustees and Sheriff’s Offices provide much of the information required to identify scheduled foreclosure auctions. From there, we verify the data and attempt to enhance it with other valuable data points.
The names of documents in the auction phase also vary from state to state. Documents filed in public records relating to the auction of the property are labeled Notice of Trustee Sale (NOTS) in states with non-judicial foreclosure processes, and Notice of Foreclosure Sale (NOFS) or Final Judgment in states using the judicial process.
Notices of Sale or Auction typically spell out the sale or minimum bid amount as well as the time and place of the auction.
We deploy the same strict standards in the aggregation, data normalization and publication of these “mid-process” foreclosures.
We publish auction data nationwide.
