How to Find Property Auctions

Whether you are a buy and hold investor, fix and flipper, or property wholesaler, if you have financing in order, buying foreclosure and REO properties at auctions is a great way to get a good, quick deal. You might be surprised at how many properties are being auctioned in your area; you just have to know where to look. We have put together some of the best ways to find auctions. Bonus, even if you don’t want to buy a property, auctions are a fantastic way to network with other real estate investors.

  1. Auction Websites: There are a handful of websites dedicated to finding property auctions. Auction.com and Hudson & Marshall are some of our favorites. 
  2. Newspapers: Local newspapers can be a gold mine of property auctions. Check the legal notices section.
  3. The U.S. Treasury: The U.S. Treasury holds approximately 300 public auctions every year with many good real estate deals.
  4. Google Search: You’d be surprised at how many deals you can find simply by typing “foreclosure auctions” into Google.
