Yulee, FL – March 15, 2016 -Nassau County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, John A. Crawford, announces the launch of their new online foreclosure sale website NASSAU REALFORECLOSE. Nassau’s online foreclosure sale is designed to ensure fairness and increase the number of potential buyers for each property, thereby benefitting bidders and property owners alike.
Live foreclosure sales that are currently held at the Robert M. Foster Justice Center in Yulee will immediately switch to the online system on April 1, 2016. Free training sessions will be held at the Robert M. Foster Justice Center in Yulee on March 28, 2016. Plaintiff training will be held at 1:00 p.m. and bidder training will be held at 3:00 p.m. Interested parties may register for training with Realauction.com in advance by calling (877) 361-7325. Webinar classes covering the use of the new auction site software are also available by calling Realauction.com.
Providing the software, hosting the website, and providing customer service is Fort Lauderdale based Realauction.com. The intuitive website allows a person to make deposits, place bids, monitor auction activity, and pay for their winning bids, all from the convenience of their home, office, or mobile laptop. Also, due to the auction-style format, the Nassau County foreclosure site allows a person to be in more than one place at the time by offering a “proxy bidding” process. Bidders must register in advance for this service.
John A. Crawford, Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, said the software will provide ease-of-use, allowing individuals to register, review property data, and enter bids at any time until the auction ends. Once the auction closes, payment is accepted by electronic wire transfer or certified funds directly to the Clerk of the Court.
“The site is very simple to use even to those that have limited computer experience,” said Crawford. “Prospective bidders are provided with tools such as links to the Tax Collector, Property Appraiser, and Official Records which will assist them in their preliminary research. In addition to all of the other benefits of the electronic venue, bids can be placed from the comfort of their homes or offices.”
Interested parties are required to register on the website before placing deposits and bids. Registration on the website opens April 1, 2016. Any person desiring to bid on real property, who does not own or have access to technology, may use computer terminals designated for such purpose at the Robert M. Foster Justice Center, 76347 Veterans Way, Yulee, Florida 32097. Please review the information regarding auction procedures and be sure to read through the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on the new website before getting started.
