How can I access foreclosure information?

All Eagle County properties in foreclosure can be viewed from the Search Foreclosures page.

When and where is the foreclosure sale held?
The sale is held every Wednesday morning at 10 a.m.; however, there is not a physical auction unless there are bidders. Bidders must register by 9:45 a.m. in the Treasurer’s Office. The auction typically takes place in the hallway outside of the Treasurer's Office; however, the location is subject to change.

What is needed to bid at the sale?
Anyone wishing to bid must have certified funds for the amount they wish to bid and be registered before 9:45 a.m. the day of the sale. Certified funds must be in the form of a cashier’s check or verifiable wire transfer, which must be received the same day.

Does the Public Trustee have information about other possible liens on the foreclosed property?
No. Our office only has information concerning the foreclosing lien.
