Beginning July 1, 2022, the Noble County Sheriff’s Office will conduct sheriff sales on the “Official Public Sheriff’s Sale Website.” This website is operated by Realauction based on a contract with the Ohio Department of Administrative Services. The process and procedures under which these sales will be completed are detailed on the Realauction website.
All prospective bidders should familiarize themselves with this online process. Realauction will conduct webinar training. Registrants for webinar training must contact Realauction Customer Service at 1-877-361-7325 or email at email@example.com.
All person(s) who want to bid on a property offered by the Noble County Sheriff’s Office must register with Realauction. Registration will include completion of the Purchaser Information Form.
Properties will be open for bid, at least seven days immediately prior to the date of sale. This is generally known as a proxy bid.
On scheduled Fridays at 10:00 AM (EST), the online auction will begin. An auction will be conducted for each individual property; however only one property will be sold at a time. After a property is sold, the next scheduled property sale will begin.
Deposits are as follows for Real Estate Sheriff Sales:
If the appraised value of the property is:
- $10,000.00 or less = Deposit of $2,000.00
- $10,000.01 – 200,000.00 = Deposit of $5,000.00
- $200,000.01 or greater = Deposit of $10,000.00
ACH debit deposits must be initiated by 4:00 PM five (5) business days before the Friday auction.
Balance of the purchase price is due within 30 days after confirmation of sale in the form of a check, money order or cashier’s check made out to Noble County Sheriff’s Office. The purchaser shall be responsible for the cost, allowance, and taxes that the proceeds of the sale do not cover.
Advertisements are printed in the Journal Leader on Mondays for three consecutive weeks before the day of sale.
The Noble County Sheriff’s Office cannot give any legal advice on this matter. A title search is recommended. The Sheriff’s Office does not hold any key(s) for the properties being sold. The Noble County Sheriff’s Office is not responsible for the condition of the buildings or property and therefore there are no guarantees. There was no inside inspection of the property and the Sheriff is not liable for the condition of the property upon confirmation of the sale. Property is sold as-is, where-is.
