How does the Sheriff Sale work?
By law, the sale must be a public sale, unless ordered by the Court.  Sales are held on Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted, just inside the west doors of the Fulton County Courthouse.  You, or a representative must appear to bid.  All bidding is done at the sale.  No prior or sealed bids are taken.  It works the same as any common auction.  There is no prior registration.  Make sure you can meet the terms of the sale.  Be ready to make your 10% deposit at the time of sale.  Caution, this is a Court function; if the sale is not completed, you are subject to being held in contempt of court and losing your deposit.
