REAL PROPERTY SALES - BIDDER INSTRUCTIONS


1) Arrive at least fifteen minutes prior to sale, so we can get your information and verify your funds.

2) At the sale, bidders other than the creditor must have cash in hand. Cash in hand means that the funds are present now. There is no time allowed to go obtain funds.  Cash or certified cashier’s checks are acceptable as funds. Cashier's checks must be made out to Deschutes County Sheriff's Office.

 

If any part of the purchase price is paid by cashier’s check, the purchaser will be given a receipt in lieu of the Certificate of Sale. The cashier’s check will then be deposited. Once we have verification the cashier's check has received final settlement at the financial institution, the purchaser will receive the Certificate of Sale by first class mail. There is a separate $30.00 fee for the Certificate of Sale.
