Iowa Sheriff Sales / Foreclosures / Surplus Real Estate Auctions

Find free foreclosure auction listings in Iowa. These public auctions have listings of properties for sale online with photos. There is no special license or membership required in order to bid in a sheriff sale in Iowa.

Some of these foreclosure auctions may require a refundable deposit in order to participate. You may also be asked to provide a letter from your bank showing proof of funds in order to register for bidding. Also, in Sheriff Sales, it is common that you will not be able to physically inspect the property prior to the auction. This is usually not the case with the privately owned auctions listed at the bottom.

Many of these auctions will allow you to sign up to be notified of future sales in that county or city in IA. There is no charge for this feature. Make certain to look at all the auction rules and regulations surrounding the sale before the auction starts. Also, take plenty of time to research the auction properties (including looking at the Iowa property records database) that you are interested in. Having access to an attorney during the process is also highly recommended.
