SHERIFF SALES (REAL ESTATE) This is a sale for non-payment of mortgage. Properties are appraised and advertised before each sale date. Each property the Sheriff is ordered to sell will have two sale dates advertised. If the property is not sold at the first advertised date, it will be put up for sale on the second advertised date.  If it is sold on the first advertised date there will not be a second date sale for that property.
Sheriff’s Sales are held as an open auction in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office every Friday at 11 am.  Minimum starting bid on the first sale date is two-thirds the appraised value.  If the property is not sold or no minimum bid is received at the first sale a second sale will be held two weeks later with no minimum bid required.  Purchasers are responsible for any fees or costs associated with the sold property not covered by the sale price.  Buyer is required to pay a deposit as explained in the Ohio Revised Code 2913.211 at time of sale, regardless of sale price.  The Sheriff’s Office does not take personal checks.  Buyer has up to one hour to bring a cashier’s check or money order for deposit amount. Cashier’s checks and money orders are to be payable to the Crawford County Sheriff. The Sheriff’s Office does not have access to these properties for viewing.  You are buying the property as it is at time of sale.  All taxes and all known liens are paid out of the proceeds of the sale.  If sale price does not cover known liens, taxes or fees the buyer is responsible for those costs payable at a later date. Buyer is given a sheriffs deed after the court has confirmed the sale.  This is a court action and may take several weeks and sometimes several months to complete.
